    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 Much of current water loss is blamed on outdated infrastructure since a large part of the water delivery systems in the United States dates back to years shortly after World War II.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.

  • EPR waste minimisation monitoring for wastewater treatment industry

    The EPR regulations have replaced the IPPC regulations and are effective from May 2009 for qualifying companies within the industrial sector and October 2009 within the water sector. They will progressively require industry to minimise waste, reduce product loss and implement improved process control. The legislation will require the operator to self monitor processes and discharges, to demonstrate effective control with particular emphasis on EPR compliance and prevention. The regulating Agency will operate a point scoring system to assess operators under the OMA-3 program and this will be used to identify how well a company is managing their processes and possibly identify areas for improvement. The Environmental Permitting Regulations require industry to install instrumentation (MCERTS approved where available) to report water quality. EPR compliance monitoring may include automatic water sampling, flow measurement, pH, turbidity and TOC water analysis. Industry will need to identify point of source emissions, take steps to correct inefficient control and alarm unacceptable process deviations. Although the legislation focuses on environmental improvement, good housing keeping also makes a lot of sense. Optimisation of process control minimises waste, reduces treatment costs and ultimately saves money.
