  • Scottish Water Flow Monitoring Contracts

    Scottish Water commissioned HL in 2007 to deliver two separate flow monitoring contracts to help improve the water companies understanding of the yield and low flow conditions at several water supply catchments across Scotland. One project involved the installation of reservoir level, inflow flow gauges and recording raingauge devices in nine reservoir catchments in South West Scotland. Although ...

  • Latest analytical technology ensures biogas efficiency

    Anaerobic Digestion (AD) relies on the ability of specific micro-organisms to convert organic material into a gas that can be used to generate electricity. However, these bacteria require specific conditions if they are to function effectively and instrumentation specialist company HACH LANGE has developed a range of online, portable and laboratory instruments that have enabled a large number of ...


  • Efficient pit remediation - CETCO Oilfield Services Process for Treating Pit Water

    A consulting firm was involved in remediating a large earthen pit, which previously contained oil and produced waters near Venice, Louisiana. The site contained approximately 17,000 barrels of produced water and accumulated rainwater. While the entire project involved many aspects, excavating the contaminated soil could not commence until the 17,000 barrels of oily surface water was removed. ...
