  • Wastewater engineers go with the flow

    The efficiency of maintenance work has been improved by water treatment engineers employing Intellisonde monitors in their final effluent. Designed primarily to measure water quality, the Intellisondes also measure flow, and this reading is being used to detect the accumulation of debris that necessitates a maintenance visit. Wastewater treatment efficiency is often measured by the analysis of ...

  • Wastewater-Primary Treatment

    Primary Treatment is defined as a wastewater treatment process that takes place in a rectangular or circular tank and allows those substances in wastewater that readily settle or float to be separated from the water being treated. This process achieves solids separation. The solids readily available to settle to achieve sedimentation will do so in a settling tank referred as a clarifier. On the ...

  • 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 ...
