A well-thought-out dewatering plan is important to the success of any jobsite. Dewatering pumps often are necessary to remove groundwater and rainwater in order to perform work safely, but it is crucial to abide by the applicable laws and regulations and consider how selected dewatering methods will affect the environment. Each site has its own dewatering challenges, and it is important to consider all options, especially regarding discharge of water on a jobsite.
Filtration methods for meeting Clean Water Act regulations
Reverse osmosis (RO) has become the standard technology for water purification in numerous commercial and industrial applications. This trend has largely been driven by the advancement of low-pressure RO membranes with enhanced energy savings. Axeon Water Technologies is a leader in utilizing innovative proprietary technology for increasing permeate production while lowering operating pressures in RO applications.
Water has always been an essential ingredient in industrial production, but today, it is also a key strategic asset.
Make the most of water resources with a strategic reuse plan
In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.
