Lagoon aerationPennwell web 220 163

The Reliant Water Technologies Model WQA was specifically designed to operate in shallow (5’ to 12’ deep) ponds and lagoons to provide aeration and destratification with a minimum of energy. It requires only 5’ of water to operate. It continuously moves all the water within a 5 acre pond or lagoon and utilizes the weight of the moving water to break up the bottom’s toxic dead zone, allowing for the ammonia and nitrogen components trapped there to rise and naturally dissipate through oxidation. The system utilizes both coarse and fine bubble diffusion technologies.

Lift station maintenance

Anue Water Technologies Inc. has released the EP-700 Series, new low-cost mechanical systems for maintaining a lift station environment that is fat-, oil-, and grease-free. The systems provide two important actions promoting pretreatment in lift stations: They recycle a fractional amount of wastewater back to the wet well increasing dissolved oxygen levels as much as 800% while evenly dispersing highly homogenized solids. These interrelated actions work together to promote pretreatment in the lift station. As a result, the exiting effluent quality is consistent and predictable.

Detention pond designPennwell web 220 163

CULTEC Inc. is currently the only stormwater chamber manufacturer whose products are included in Bentley Systems’ new PondPack V8i application for the analysis and design of detention ponds. CULTEC and Bentley partnered to help PondPack V8i users design their hydraulic models with CULTEC chambers faster and more efficiently. Modelers can now employ PondPack V8i to construct complex arrays of CULTEC storage chambers, which can be further combined with other standard pond components to create a single storage unit to be used in the routing analysis.

Submersible basin mixers

Hydromatic’s new HBM200 Series of submersible basin mixers is designed to automatically break up solids and grease that commonly float at the top of the lift station and interfere with proper operation of equipment such as float controls and lift outs. It will also help prevent a lift station from going septic during periods of low activity. The units offer various mounting options which allow them to be placed at any elevation or angle to target trouble spots in an installation.

Erosion control solutionsPennwell web 225 120

Leggett & Platt has unveiled its new Landmark Earth Solutions product line, which includes ScourStop™, a transition mat system that provides a no-maintenance, vegetated, NPDEScompliant alternative to rock rip rap. Typical applications include culvert outfalls, overflow structures, stream banks, bridge drains, and levee and shoreline protection. The transition mats provide impact resistance, tensile strength and ease of maintenance when placed over a turf reinforcement mat and/or sod and anchored to the native topography of the site. Areas of the highest hydraulic stresses, and potential for scour, are protected by the transition mat while other soil cover BMPs are used in downstream, lower stress areas.
