Multi-barrier water treatment cleans up turbidity spikes

by WesTech Engineering, Inc.  (Apr. 12, 2016)

When the City of Bloomfield, N.M., was notified by the New Mexico Environmental Department that it had 18 months to bring its drinking water treatment plant into compliance with the Interim Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (IESWTR), they needed a fast, innovative solution. Under the IESWTR, the city was challenged to meet regulatory ...

The influence of reduced light intensity on the response of benthic diatoms to herbicide exposure

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Jan. 23, 2016)

Herbicide pollution events in aquatic ecosystems often co‐occur with increased turbidity and reduced light intensity. It is therefore important to determine whether reduced light intensity can influence herbicide toxicity, especially to primary producers such as benthic diatoms. Benthic diatoms collected from four rivers were exposed to ...

Partech Water Instruments Case Study: Landfill Turbidity and Dosing Control - Case Study

by Partech (Electronics) Ltd.  (Jan. 12, 2016)

Set in one of Devon’s most beautiful river valleys Deep Moor is a haven for aquatic wildlife and therefore the site needs to be careful not to have any detrimental effects on the environment. Partech have been working closely with Greenacre Pumps of Newton Abbot in order to provide an extremely reliable and cost-effective dosing system. The ...


by Enviro-USA American Manufacturer, LLC  (Jan. 5, 2016)

TURBIDITY BARRIER ULTIMATE GUIDE Definition Floating turbidity barriers (a.k.a. silt curtains, silt boom, sediment curtain) are a temporary in-water sediment barrier consisting of a continuous geotextile fabric curtain suspended from a flotation device on the water surface and held in ...

Meet the Partech Distributor – Stig Wahlström

by Partech (Electronics) Ltd.  (Dec. 10, 2015)

This month we spoke to Hannu Toroi at our distributor Stig Wahlström in Finland to ask his opinion on Partech, take a look at what he had to say… How long have you been affiliated with Partech? We first became involved with Partech in 2012. We were drawn to Partech water instruments because they complement other wastewater devices ...

by Partech (Electronics) Ltd.  (Oct. 22, 2015)

This month at Partech Water Instruments we’re talking about our turbidity sensors—fantastic to use as an environmental indicator. So how can they be used? We’re here to tell you about turbidity sensors being utilised for drinking water, effluent discharges and coagulant controlling. Turbidity Sensors and Drinking Water ...

How the LISST-ABS works

by Sequoia Scientific, Inc.  (Oct. 20, 2015)

INTRODUCTION: Sequoia’s Acoustic Backscatter Sensor, LISST-ABS is designed to measure suspended sediment concentration at a point. Unlike ADCP’s which may record similar backscatter strength at multiple points along the acoustic beams (‘ranges’), the LISST-ABS  only reports backscatter signal strength at a ...

Comparing Optical Turbidity With LISST-ABS

by Sequoia Scientific, Inc.  (Oct. 20, 2015)

For measuring suspended sediments, the use of optical backscatter sensors or other turdibity sensors is widespread. At the same time, it is understood that these sensors respond to total particle area, not volume or mass. In other words, optical turbidity sensors have this property: their sensitivity decreases with increasing grain size. The ...

Predictive water quality modelling and resilience flow conditioning to manage discolouration risk in operational trunk mains

by IWA Publishing  (Aug. 6, 2015)

This paper presents predictive discolouration modelling and subsequent field trial validation for a cast iron trunk main network. This enabled a UK water company to propose an ‘operational flow conditioning’ maintenance plan that reduces discolouration risk, improves network resilience and asset condition and yet does not require ...
