Problem: A challenging aspect of drinking water treatment is often predicting or monitoring the changes that occur with incoming water quality. Seasonality, weather events, agricultural practices or upstream discharges can influence the quality of both ground and surface water over time. With multiple variables impacting source waters, monitoring historical trends may not be sufficient to predict raw water changes or detect uncharacteristic events.
Drinking water can be produced from any natural sources like groundwater, lakes and rivers (surface waters) or seawater. Drinking water standards are set by the World Health organisation or by the European Union. Drinking water must be free of suspended solids, microorganisms and toxic chemicals. Mineral concentration recommendation vary from country to country but most of the minerals have a maximum concentration recommended to ensure safe, equilibrated and pleasant water to drink.
WesTech offers a wide variety of solutions for groundwater treatment for potable use. Whether your treatment objective is gas removal, iron & manganese removal, color removal, softening or even filtering a source under the direct influence of surface water, WesTech has your solution.
The world’s surface is slightly over 70% water with billions of gallons of surface water and ground water used daily in society. Whether it is for drinking, hygiene, washing, cooking, recreation, agriculture, or power generation and industrial coolants, water is an undeniable source of life.
Pure copper is soft and malleable; a freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color. It is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, a building material, and a constituent of various metal alloys. Recycling is a major source of copper in the modern world. A combination of economic and regulatory factors are now at work to make metal recycle and water reuse very attractive.
Based on the wireless radar technology SenZ2 provides a complete solution for remote, real-time monitoring and logging of water levels. For the water sector real-time insights in water levels is key. Accurate level-measurement data can result in improved policy, reduction of risks and direct cost savings. The Wireless Level Radar (WLR05-2G/001) can monitor waste water and overflow, surface water and groundwater in remote places without any power source. With radar as the most reliable and cost-effective level...

Our team designs custom solutions to deliver safe, effective, and economically attractive alternatives to minimize or eliminate the use of expensive and hazardous delivered chemicals.
Problem: Nitrate, the most stable form of nitrogen in water, is found in both ground and surface water and originates from both natural and anthropogenic sources. Due to its high solubility in water, nitrate is not filtered out from groundwater like other contaminants. Removing nitrates from source water is important as elevated levels in drinking water can cause serious health effects when ingested.
The water treatment issues confronting the Agriculture market today include an ever-increasing demand for irrigation water, compromised water quality, declining availability, and expanded goverment regulations. Water sources traditionally used for agricultural applications include groundwater, surface water, properly treated municipal and industrial wastewaters, as well as liquid manures stored in lagoons onsite at large dairy and swine operations. Dairy and CAFO manure storage, treatment, and handling regulation...
Maintaining the quality of natural waters provides numerous economic benefits by preventing severe deterioration of water resources that would require expensive treatment operations to protect public health and the environment. For instance, monitoring nitrates in surface waters can possibly prevent algal blooms from happening by facilitating the necessary steps to stop pollution sources from discharging nitrogen nutrients into the water system.
