Water Treatment: Thinking Small

As populations grow, as urban, suburban and ex-urban areas expand, demand for water increases and safety standards rise. An effective and creative way to deal with problems of growth and resource management might just be to think small. A case in point is the Olivenhain Municipal Water District's (OMWD) treatment facility in San Diego County, California.

Aeration for Ponds and Cisterns

Using oxygen for the natural cleansing of water is becoming a viable alternative for pond and cistern owners in reducing the use of chemicals to fight the bacteria and algae that can become a nuisance. An aerobic bacterium needs oxygen in order to maintain the balance of nature. This article will take a look at some methods for increasing oxygen content, Henry's Law and applications that benefit from increased levels of O2.

Fine Bubble Aeration/Mixing System Cuts Lagoon Treatment Energy Costs

The Biomixer Aeration and Mixing system is providing optimum dissolved oxygen transfer and mixing at this lagoon, in spite of the number of units being reduced from the original design of five units down to three. This is being obtained with the dissolved oxygen levels throughout the basin averaging 9.1 mg/l. Even at the influent end of the basin where the loading rate is the highest, the dissolved oxygen readings were above 8.5 mg/l.
