  • Development of monitoring and evaluation system for wastewater issues in Palestine

    Wastewater is the main source of groundwater pollution if it is not properly collected and treated. In many parts of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank wastewater is collected through cesspits, while in other areas it is collected through networks and treated in central treatments plants. Collecting aggregate information on the level of indicators with concern to the wastewater issues (collection, ...

  • Monitoring and validation of decentralised water and wastewater systems for increased uptake

    Decentralised water and wastewater systems are being implemented to meet growing demand for municipal services either in combination with centralised systems or as standalone systems. In Australia, there has been increased investment in decentralised water and wastewater systems in response to the capacity constraints of existing centralised systems, an extended period of below average rainfall, ...

  • Wastewater Monitoring Series, Part 2: The Use of 2nd Generation ATP Monitoring Systems

    In October, we featured Part I of a three-part series on "Getting a Handle on Living Biomass in Wastewater Treatment." Here, we present Part II of the series which focuses on a revolutionary breakthrough technology that uses Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) for the measurement of total microbiological content in a given sample. Through years of successful research, development, and field application, ...

  • Monitoring Hydrocarbons in Wastewater - Case Study

    The Situation A wastewater treatment company operated an oil/water separation facility on a multi-acre industrial site in Northern California. Its purpose was to recycle oil products for profit while at the same time providing a wastewater treatment service for industries based in Northern California. The oily water mixes processed by the company were obtained from ...

  • Monitoring Nitrates in Drinking Water and Wastewater

    Nitrate is present in high levels in wastewater due in part to the high nitrates present in human sewage but also from some types of industrial effluent entering the municipal sewer system. Nitrate is also a very common contaminant in both surface water and ground water. Nitrate occurs naturally in source water as a result of decaying plants. However, there are other manmade sources of ...

  • Wastewater Monitoring Equipment for An Airport Group

    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the wastewater monitoring solution for a major airport group based in the UK whose fluid run-off threatened to endanger the aquatic ecosystem near the airports. The commercial airline needed an online device capable of monitoring toxic discharges into local rivers. The airline routinely sprayed de-icer and anti-icer solution onto their aircraft before taking off ...

  • The Evolution of Collector Monitoring Systems

    The vast majority of chain and flight collectors in operation throughout the world do not have any form of monitoring system installed to protect against operational failure. Traditional safety devices consist of a shear pin sprocket device, with a limit switch, designed to protect the drive system if a load or torque exceeds the working load of the  ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Radionuclides in wastewater treatment plants: monitoring of Sicilian plants

    Three Sicilian wastewater treatment plants were monitored to assess the occurrence and the behaviour of radionuclides. Two sampling campaigns (screening and long-term) were carried out during which liquid and solid samples have been analysed. It was found that 131I mostly occurred in the samples analysed during the screening campaign (43% of the analysed samples contained 131I). ...

  • Monitoring and examination of adaptation period of microorganisms in membrane–bioreactor system treating fruit juice industry wastewaters

    In this study, fruit juice industry wastewaters by using MBR process have been monitored and examined considering effective microorganisms and changes in biodiversity during the treatment period. Microbiological examinations have been carried out using conventional microbiological methods and microscopic observations. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic microorganisms and also floc structure of the ...

  • Wastewater Monitoring Series, Part 1: Identifying the Gaps in Conventional Biomass Test Methods in Wastewater

    Biological wastewater treatment systems require living biomass to remove biodegradable contaminants from wastewater.  Effective treatment is directly dependent on the concentration of healthy biomass. It stands to reason that having an easy method to directly measure the quantity and quality of living biomass would be tremendously beneficial to the operation of biological wastewater ...

  • Comprehensive monitoring of appropriate wastewater treatment at national and global level

    Coordinator:Korea Environment Institute (KEI) Where: Palais des Congrès (Rez de Jardin Level)- PC 2 - Endoume 3 When: Thursday 15 March 1700 - 1900 Targeted audience: Policy makers, practitioners, service providers, civil society To build comprehensive monitoring system at national and ...

  • Application note: The Sievers InnovOx TOC Analyzer: Wastewater Monitoring

    Overview Wastewater is used water. It can include substances such as human waste, food scraps, oils, soaps, and chemicals. Manufacturing industries as well as wastewater municipalities must comply with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) Clean Water Act (CWA) regulations. In order to discharge treated wastewater and be compliant with the CWA, a ...

  • Real-time monitoring and forecasting of odor after dewatering in wastewater treatment

    A real-time odor monitoring system was developed to evaluate and predict odors levels of dewatered solids generated by the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority’s (DCWASA) advanced 370 mgd wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Washington, DC. Each year, DCWASA generates over 400,000 wet tons of biosolids and recycles these biosolids by applying them to over 20,000 acres of agricultural ...

  • Contemporary design, operation, and monitoring of potable reuse systems

    Water scarcity driven by population growth, lack of conventional supplies, and climate change impacts have resulted in increasing interest worldwide in drinking water augmentation using treated wastewater effluents. Potable reuse can occur indirect or direct, but is also practiced in many places as ‘de facto reuse’, where upstream wastewater discharge occurs to drinking water ...

  • Heat From Wastewater

    When it comes to using wastewater heat from channels, provision and evaluation of hydraulic and thermal wastewater data is urgently needed prior to planning and implementation of facilities. Knowing the wastewater temperatures as well as the flow rates - particularly as dry weather discharge – is an indispensable component. It is therefore essential to carry out preliminary measurements ...
