The RIO Zuni generates 1 or 2 lb of chlorine-equivalent mixed oxidant solution chemistry from salt for biofilm and airborne bacterial control in process and makeup water disinfection per day. The system is designed for minimal maintenance with no storage or handling of hazardous chemicals. It can handle up to 170 mg/L hardness without softening and has an optional integrated brine tank and remote monitoring capabilities. This cost-effective solution is ideal for industrial and commercial cooling towers.
MIOX Corp. signs distribution agreement with Simply Water LLC for North America aquatics
MIOX Corp. has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Simply Water LLC for North America aquatics. Simply Water has represented a broad range of onsite generation technologies, and is an expert in aquatics water disinfection.
The two companies have worked together for many years prior to entering into this agreement. Simply Water has installed MIOX patented mixed-oxidant solution (MOS) onsite generation systems at indoor and outdoor pools ranging from 20,000 to 1 million gal of water at facilities such as YMCAs, parks and recreation, school districts and universities.
West Fraser Mills in Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada, received a demand order from the province’s Workmen’s Compensation Board to have potable, disinfected water available at all locations in its sawmill, including in the dust suppression misting system.

The town of Hudson Bay, with a population of 1,500 people, is located in the Red Deer Valley, between the Porcupine and Pasquia Hills in northeast Saskatchewan, Canada. It is widely known for its forestry, agriculture and wildlife.
Like many rural communities in the province, Hudson Bay is faced with treating a challenging potable water source. Its raw water is high in dissolved organic carbon (DOC), which can vary by 4 mg/L throughout the year. DOC is a known precursor to the formation of halogenated organic disinfection byproducts (DBPs) such as trihalomethanes.

FX ChloraGuard carbon blocks provide five times more chloramine reduction capacity than standard carbon blocks. With more than 70 million Americans drinking chloraminated water, the need for chloramine filtration products has never been greater. These carbon blocks are available in all standard sizes for POU, POE and light commercial applications.
The Legionella bacterium, Legionella pneumophila — the fundamental agent of Legionnaires’ disease — is a water-based organism that causes infection when inhaled in aerosol form. Legionnaires’ disease acquired its name in 1976, when an outbreak of pneumonia occurred among attendees of a convention of the American Legion in Philadelphia. Later, the bacterium causing the illness was named Legionella.

Ozone Water Systems will be responsible for the sale, service and promotion of Primozone’s ozone generators
Primozone Production AB and Ozone Water Systems Inc. have entered into a strategic partnership agreement for the U.S. Under the terms of the agreement, Ozone Water Systems (OWS) will be responsible for sales, service and promotion of Primozone’s ‘new generation’ ozone generators and accessories.
Many water utilities across the U.S. are transitioning to chloramine for disinfection as an alternative to chlorine. This change is in response to stricter U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations on disinfection byproducts (DBPs), which are created when chlorine reacts with organics in water. Chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, is more stable and does not create DPBs.
Specialized carbon products improve chloramine removal
UNICEF ambassadors and supporters take to social media to help provide clean water for children
Facebook users can help provide children around the world with access to clean water and sanitation and urge their friends and family to do the same. The seventh annual UNICEF Tap Project, a national fundraising and awareness campaign, is going digital this year by utilizing social media.
Waterborne illnesses are the second leading cause of preventable childhood deaths in the world, killing nearly 4,000 children under the age of five every day. With $5, UNICEF can provide one child with access to safe, clean water for 200 days.
NGWA develops industry best suggested practice for water well system professionals
The National Ground Water Assn. (NGWA) has developed an industry best suggested practice (BSP) for water well system professionals to use regarding the emergency disinfection of flooded residential water wells.
