The water treatment plants will use sodium hypochlorite for water disinfection
The cities of Groton and Norwich, Conn. will make significant upgrades to their drinking water treatment plants by eliminating the use of chlorine gas at these facilities. These actions settle claims by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that the cities violated federal clean air laws meant to prevent chemical accidents.
The company added sales managers for the Northeast and central regions
HaloSource, parent company of the HaloKlear brand of environmental water treatment products, has expanded its sales team and added two new regional sales managers for the Northeast and central regions of the U.S.
The design of water treatment systems often is based on the application of current solutions. Determining the best system at the time of installation can be done with information gained on site, or from experience harvested from other similar, successful applications.
Process water system combines traditional & next-generation technologies
The research will be done in the university’s Water Quality Center
A group of professors in the Opus College of Engineering at Marquette University has received a $199,679 grant from the National Science Foundation to study drinking water treatment.
The research will be done in Marquette’s Water Quality Center, housed in the college’s Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering and led by Dr. Brooke Mayer, assistant professor. She will collaborate with Dr. Daniel Zitomer, professor and director of the Water Quality Center, and Dr. Patrick McNamara, assistant professor.
The facility is the only Pennsylvania facility to earn the Presidents Award this year
Pennsylvania American Water’s Norristown Water Treatment Plant, which serves approximately 32,000 customers in Montgomery County, has received the Presidents Award from the Partnership for Safe Water. The program is a volunteer initiative developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, American Water Works Assn. and other organizations representing water suppliers that continuously provide water quality that surpasses regulatory standards.
Despite global progress on drinking water, gains not trickling down to the most marginalized
Access to drinking water has been one of the biggest successes of the Millennium Development Goals, UNICEF said ahead of World Water Day, but for 748 million people around the world, just obtaining this essential service remains a challenge.
The certification allows homeowners, homebuilders and water and sewer agencies to use onsite home water recycling technology
Nexus eWater announced that it is the first company to receive certification to the NSF/ANSI 350 global standard for residential greywater treatment for its NEXtreater home water recycler.
The certification enables California builders, water and sewer agencies and homeowners to build drought-resilient homes by safely recycling two out of every three gallons in the home for non-potable, approved uses. The 2013 California Plumbing Code allows greywater treated to the stringent NSF/ANSI 350 standard to be reused in a range of applications.
The reality of North America’s aging water infrastructure is that the end product can be less than desirable in spite of best efforts. Decades-old drinking water and wastewater pipe is prone to leaks, which could in turn lead to broken water mains surrounded by raw sewage, potentially contaminating drinking water. This water then is sent to homes and businesses for consumption, food preparation and bathing.
POE water treatment systems offered as building amenities
The H-300-NXT Everpure line of luxury residential water filtration products is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 401 for the removal of contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter medications and chemical compounds including bisphenol A. The pleated filter membrane is 30% larger than the standard H-300 and provides 50% greater dirt-holding capacity and contaminant reduction capability while maintaining longer filter life. The drinking water system can be installed in kitchens or wet bars and can be connected to appliances.
