  • Effectiveness of Alternative On-Site Wastewater Treatment Technologies

    ABSTRACT New York City’s drinking water supply is threatened by the potential development of the Catskill/Delaware watershed. The effectiveness of alternative on-site wastewater treatment systems in this drinking water supply watershed is being evaluated during the course of a oneyear field study. Twenty-four on-site systems were designed and installed for individual sites throughout the ...

  • On-site Neutralization of Laboratory Wastewater: Northern Territory University

     The Northern Territory University’s Faculty of Science have designed and installed a ‘Neutralization Pit’ as their ‘cleaner production initiative. The primary objectives of the Northern Territory University adopting this form of treatment for the chemical wastewater generated by the Faculty of Science was to: Prevent pollution and eutrophication of the receiving Darwin watercourses as ...

  • SBR Wastewater Treatment Provides Large Clean-up on Small Site

    One of the largest capacity wastewater treatment plants in Europe is under construction on a small plot of land at Ringsend, on Dublin Bay in Ireland. Sequencing batch reactor (SBR) technology and 100,000 diffusers from ITT Industries' Sanitarie unit was selected to meet the challenging waste treatment needs for this site. When Dublin's wastewater treatment plant was built in the 1970s, it ...


  • ON-SITE SEWAGE SYSTEMS: NEW OUTLOOK FOR DECENTRALIZED WASTEWATER TREATMENT

    As researchers analyze the soils’ ability to absorb discharge, more knowledge is gained about alternatives to septic tanks and standard drain fields that include peat filter systems, constructed wetlands and drip irrigation. ONE out of every four American households currently treat and release wastewater on their own property. Although most people assume that on-site systems are confined to rural ...


  • Improving Automation At Remote Sites

    Because water treatment usually involves a large geographic area, automation systems for water/wastewater applications often require remote sites. In industrial water treatment, water is typically treated immediately adjacent to its points of use, and these locations may be across large industrial complexes. In municipal applications, water often is pumped long distances across extensive areas ...

  • Immersed Membrane Technology for Advanced Wastewater Treatment & Water Reuse

    A significant segment of the North American population is unserviced by municipal wastewater systems and, with the seemingly, unending growth of residential communities, commercial complexes, industrial parks and support infrastructure, this situation is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future. Traditionally serviced by on-site wastewater treatment units, and often relying on groundwater ...

  • Wastewater treatment plant implements MBR – technology for sewage water from hospital

    The chemical industry is facing a multitude of economical and environmental challenges. Not only is it detrimental for a chemical plant’s continuous existence in today’s global environment to become more and more cost-effective, the environmental regulations are also becoming increasingly stringent. Hence, the MBR technology with its high quality effluent proves to be a good fit for ...

  • The value of fracking wastewater treatment and recycling technologies in North Dakota

    The oil boom in North Dakota is aided by hydraulic fracturing, often referred to as fracking. Fracking uses a pressurized water, sand, and chemical mixture to break through layers of rock and release oil and gas. This procedure produces hundreds of truckloads of wastewater for each fracked well. In this study, we analyze the financial feasibility of a system of wastewater recycling and reuse to ...

  • Removal of organic wastewater contaminants in septic systems using advanced treatment technologies

    The detection of pharmaceuticals and other organic wastewater contaminants (OWCs) in ground water and surface-water bodies has raised concerns about the possible ecological impacts of these compounds on nontarget organisms. On-site wastewater treatment systems represent a potentially significant route of entry for organic contaminants to the environment. In this study, effluent samples were ...

  • On-Site Chlorine Generation Feasibility Study

     ABSTRACT Gaseous chlorine has been effectively used for disinfection in drinking water and wastewater treatment for decades. While various regulatory programs have placed numerous restrictions on the uses of this chemical due to its hazardous nature, recent focus on the possibility of a terrorist attack at a drinking water or wastewater facility, has underscored the potential hazard ...

  • Wastewater skimming the surface

    A walk on the wild side gave the founder of a Calgary service company a new appreciation for clean water, indirectly laying the foundation for his own future. Years ago, while on the island of Borneo, Jason Snydmiller learned the super-major he was under contract to would promptly fine any contractor that left oil in local waters. Although it seemed harsh then, the rule was necessary, since ...


  • Decentralized Wastewater Treatment

    An application used worldwide, now growing in US to address the needs of small communities and developments Conventional sewer operations managed by small communities provide centralized treatment of wastewater of which residents are accustomed. But the expense of operating these systems as they expand with miles and miles of sewer lines is staggering. Expanding sewer line infrastructure, ...

  • Wastewater Treatment & Recycle

    Fresh water is a scarce commodity; this fact is well acknowledged by one and all. People at all levels be it general public, governmental bodies, and industries understand the implications of good quality water availability in terms of quantity, cost and wastage. As a consequence, there is a growing consensus on wastewater treatment for recycle/reuse. This paper briefly describes the treatment ...

  • Home, Sweet Wastewater Building

    How can a wastewater treatment plant embedded into a neighborhood not use much landmass and be environmentally friendly and user-friendly all at the same time? One system aims to do all of the above. Why should a wastewater treatment plant always have to look like, well, a wastewater treatment plant?  A visual trip through project files of Aqueonics Inc., based in Greenville, SC, reveals photos ...

  • The natural way to clean wastewater

    John Todd founded Ocean Arks International in the 1980s, where he started to experiment with processes that mimic natural ways to purify wastewater. He built a greenhouse and ran sewage through a series of tanks, with plants suspended in the flowing waters, and constructed marshes made of sand and gravel. No chemicals were added, but plenty of aquatic creatures from snails to small fish were ...
