    Assessing underground infrastructure for wastewater industry

    Sewer management is crucial to the sustainability of life. It is necessary to properly discharge wastewater clinically and efficiently. Failure in wastewater systems will cause major implications in the future. The population is increasing, and larger volumes of wastewater put additional strain on existing sewer infrastructure. Each year there are nearly 75,000 such overflows in the United States, discharging approximately 900 billion gallons of untreated sewage into lakes, streams, and rivers. This affects our drinking water which, in turn, affects human habitation. The Clean Water Act of 1972 is a Federal Law that regulates and governs water pollution in the United States. It expects public utilities to properly treat and discharge water. Sewer owners need a reliable and cost-effective way of inspecting wastewater systems to make sure they are in compliance with federal regulations. EnTech improves the integrity of your wastewater collection systems.

    Assessing underground infrastructure for water industry

    America’s growth and development is dependent on reliable water provisions. Currently 3.9 trillion gallons of water are consumed in the United States per month, & the average American uses 176 gallons of water per day. Sources for drinking water are becoming less reliable as time passes. While nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh with the rest being saline and ocean-based. Water is a precious resource, therefore needs to be conserved and used appropriately. In order to achieve this, water utilities must increase efficiency. Much of current water loss is blamed on outdated infrastructure since a large part of the water delivery systems in the United States dates back to years shortly after World War II. Water utilities require a thorough and cost-effective means of inspecting their assets. EnTech can help you meet your water sustainability and efficiency needs.

  • Early warning systems for drinking water

    Drinking water supply and distribution systems around the world (a critical and interdependent component of a nation’s infrastructure) are vulnerable to both intentional and accidental contamination. Unusual water quality may serve as a warning of potential contamination. The available physico-chemical sensors utilize general water quality parameters, such as free chlorine, oxidation reduction potential (ORP), total organic carbon (TOC), turbidity, pH, dissolved oxygen, chloride, ammonia, nitrate to detect the contamination. Generally, one or more of these water quality parameters will change due to the injection of a contaminant. However, no single chemical sensor responds to all possible contaminants nor can they give any indication of the potential toxicity of complex mixtures.

  • Monitoring Sewage Flow

    Monitoring Sewage Flow is a critical tool for local governments, for water and waste-water utilities and for industrial plants. Sewage monitoring can prevent environmental disasters such as sewage overflow within populated neighborhoods or excessive waste flow into local lakes, rivers or sea. Sewage monitoring is also an important tool for short term and long term planning of the sewers infrastructure. Short term refers to just-in-time and cost effective maintenance. For example, sending the technical team to the correct manhole at the correct time to clean and eliminate obstructions. Long term planning refers to designing the correct pipe diameters and correct slopes to contain sewage from new new buildings and plants. Sewage monitoring is a tool for billing plants who produce sewage above their water intake and a tool for plants which utilize water to request lower utility bills. Solid Applied Technologies provides a complete and tested solution for Sewer Monitoring.

  • Gravity Main Sulfide Odor Control with Hydrogen Peroxide

    Gravity main sewer systems include major trunk lines and the tributaries that feed them. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) odor builds up in the collections system as the flows collect from upstream reaches and become larger, deeper and more septic (oxygen depleted) in the downstream reaches more near to the wastewater treatment plant. In general, most of the more significant hydrogen sulfide odor and corrosion control problems occur in the major trunk systems segments conveying flow to the plant. Therefore, selection of sulfide treatment for gravity systems has several options depending mainly on: Duration of control required Degree of septicity (oxygen depletion) Location of target control points or "hot spots" Location of available dosing points upstream of "hot spots" Availability of civil infrastructure and utilities Sensitivity to hazardous chemicals
