What’s in That Water?

Never has water testing been so important. Local newspaper articles and other media outlets force consumers to be more aware of their water and, therefore, may convince them have their water tested. New and changing MCLs also drive the need to test water. Water testing can be used to pinpoint a customer’s water problem as well as to strengthen the customer relationship by supplying third-party test results the customer can trust.

County Installs Stormwater Monitoring With Real-time Reporting

Holder Construction, Inc. of Atlanta was contracted to expand Gwinnett County's Cultural and Civic Center in Georgia. According to EPA's regulations and state laws, projects such as this require a NPDES Construction Activity permit.To address the monitoring side of this compliance issue, Holder Construction regularly uses traditional stormwater monitoring systems. However, in this instance, they decided to implement both a traditional system and a newer system, created through a partnership of WRT and NIVIS LLC. Holder Construction did so in order to compare results and operational efficiencies between both types of units.

Controlling Hospital Grease, Sludge Discharges

One of the major problem areas in St Petersburg, Florida has two hospitals and a nursing home that discharge to a common sewer line. Historically, the city had to clean this section of the sewer line at least four times a year to avoid blockages and sanitary sewer overflows. Working together, the city and one of the hospitals took action to control the discharge of grease from the hospital's facilities and to reduce the costs of maintenance for both the city and the hospital.
