Each spring, the quality of the process water at a pulp mill in eastern Canada would suffer when snowmelt generated large volumes of runoff into a nearby lake and its tributaries, pushing additional debris, dirt and iron into the facility’s aging clarification system.

Watts SmartStream UV is a new solution for ultraviolet (UV) water disinfection in residential and commercial applications. UV disinfection is highly effective in inactivating cysts, bacteria, viruses and parasites. Those organisms, if ingested, could lead to serious illness and even death.
Driven by the accumulation of fouling at the sleeve-water interface, maintenance time and costs remain significant challenges in the application of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection. New lamp-dimming technology can extend the sleeve cleaning maintenance cycle and contribute to labor and power savings for water treatment operations.

Atlantium Technologies Ltd. has announced that it has been awarded NSF/ANSI 61 certification for drinking water system components for contact with drinking water. Atlantium has previously been certified for contact with drinking water under the strict Israeli Standard 5452.
The CoolBlue under-counter water purifier offers microbiological treatment in a three-stage design. Stage 1 utilizes Argonide’s NanoCeram technology with activated carbon for improved taste and the reduction of soluble contaminants. Stage 2 utilizes Fiberdyne technology from Pentair Filtration. Stage 3 uses patent-pending DEAL filtration media, which is optimized to attract, capture and retain submicron particles, including bacteria and viruses.
While powders and liquids are traditional treatment methods for biofilm, bacteria, algae and fungi in small- to medium-sized closed-loop water systems, many facility service managers are turning to safer, more convenient tablets. Tablet antimicrobial treatment can help improve system performance and help facilities save money on gas and electric costs and decrease the downtime typically required to treat systems, while also providing safety from spills and skin contact risks associated with liquid treatments, and from dust associated with powder treatments.
Using antimicrobial tablets to disinfect closed-loop water systems
I rise before the sun, grab my 5-gal jug and begin my walk to the water treatment trailer. I am just one of many hundreds of people who make the journey to this new watering spot every day for fresh drinking water for my family. In my community, it is not uncommon for there to be five to 10 children per household, whom this jug of water must sustain for the day. Who am I? I am a native of Grande-Saline, Haiti.
