AWWA CEO David LaFrance thanks water professionals nationwide for keeping water safe for drinking
Dec. 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which today includes regulations for more than 90 contaminants. American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) CEO David LaFrance issued the following statement to mark the occasion.
Robert Mondavi Winery, located in Oakville in California’s famous Napa Valley, produces half a million cases of wine per year for distribution all over the world. Founded in 1966, the winery now works as a well-oiled machine, with acres of onsite vineyards, several floors of barrel rooms and fermentation tanks, its own laboratory and bottling facility, and extensive guest facilities and tasting rooms.
One does not often associate water treatment with wine, but effective water filtration is a key component of Mondavi’s wine production.

GE introduces FoodPro ST line of chemicals for corrosion control
GE has introduced a line of environmentally friendly molybdate-free water treatment chemicals called FoodPro ST8069* and FoodPro ST8070* to prevent corrosion in sterilizers and pasteurizers used in the food and beverage industry. Due to the absence of the expensive raw material molybdate, these new chemicals can be sold at a less expensive price, providing, on average, 30% more cost-effectiveness when calculated on the treatment costs for 1 cu meter of water.
