Small Systems: Springwater Filtration

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 94% of the nation’s 156,000 public water systems serve fewer than 3,300 people. These systems—classified as “small” by EPA—face unique financial and operational challenges in providing drinking water that meets EPA standards. 

In the small community of Encinal Village, N.M., a spring-fed water system is the sole source of drinking water. The system is classified by EPA as Schedule 4, and serves approximately 200 people and 60 homes.

Packaged Treatment Systems

Company Reference: 

WaterPod containerized treatment units contain one of many AdEdge package units treating a wide variety of contaminants for drinking water, remediation or industrial applications. The fully integrated, pre-engineered, pre-wired packaged water treatment solution combines system performance with economy, resulting in a solution for sites where space, cost and schedule are critical.

Peristaltic Metering Pump

Company Reference: 

Designed for smaller municipal water and wastewater systems, the ProSeries-M M-2 peristaltic metering pump is suited for injecting the aggressive and/or viscous chemicals often used in water treatment. The Flex-A-Prene dual-tube assembly is now available. The long tube life and high-pressure capability (110 psi) reduce pump maintenance and replacement costs. The pump has an intelligent control system that permits connection to SCADA systems and other remote controllers.

Alternative Energy for Reliable RO

Tiny Utrik Atoll is part of the Marshall Islands, a scattered group of atolls in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. On Utrik and neighboring islands, rain catchment traditionally supplied all of the drinking water, while well water was used for washing. Over the past decade, however, rainfall has become unreliable, and during the dry seasons Utrik islanders were forced to drink well water with unsafe salinity levels.
