The system has consistently met the effluent treatment goals since it began operation
In late 2011, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) approved plans to install a new well and build a new water treatment facility for the city of Roswell, Ga. Barlovento LLC was selected during a competitive bidding process to provide an iron and manganese removal system for the new water supply.

The technology has regulatory approval for the reduction of nitrate & perchlorate & demonstrates hexavalent chromium, volatile organic compounds, iron, manganese & sulfide elimination
Groundwater is the primary water source for most communities in North America. With an increasing need to provide treatment for a growing list of contaminants, limited support staff, and shrinking operating budgets, water utilities face many hardships.
This ½-gal pitcher removes 96% of chlorine and contaminants from tap water in just a few seconds. It is simple to use—just fill the pitcher and fasten it to the gallon dispenser. Store the sleek, slim-line pitcher in the refrigerator or leave it on the docking station at room temperature. Claryum filters last six months and retain naturally occurring minerals in the water. All components are BPA free.
This patent-pending POU water filtration device produces drinking water without frequent maintenance, chemical additions or component replacement. The system traps and neutralizes contaminants through an ion exchange process. It processes enough water to support a family of six, includes built-in safe water storage and lasts for 10 years. The system meets the World Health Organization’s Household Water Treatment specifications for removing bacteria, protozoa and viruses.
The partnership was established to make each producer the lowest-cost producer
Aquionics appointed Rodem as its distributor for the Midwest and Southeast regions. Rodem has more than 40 years’ experience in providing sanitary processing equipment across the food, beverage, brewing, pharmaceutical and life science markets.
This year's fellowships support the study of harmful algal blooms
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that 105 graduate students across the nation will receive $8.6 million in Science to Achieve Results (STAR) fellowship grants to conduct research on topics ranging from climate change and public health to water quality and sustainability that will have cross-cutting impacts in the environmental science field. The 105 STAR fellows will receive a maximum funding of $42,000 for one year for master’s students and up to two years for doctoral students.
Further studies find strontium has adverse health effects
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) made a preliminary determination to regulate strontium in the nation's drinking water. Strontium is a naturally occurring element that, at elevated levels, can impact bone strength in people who do not consume enough calcium.
The project will design a water purification system for a community in Escuintla, Guatemala
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded $14,520 to John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Ark., for a drinking water disinfection project in Guatemala under the People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) program. Every year, the P3 program helps student teams pursue projects that deliver sustainable, alternative methods to address environmental challenges.
