  • Times are changing: Wastewater as a resource

    Times are definitely changing. It used to be that wastewater from whatever source – domestic, agricultural, industrial – was something to collect and pipe away as quickly and efficiently as possible. There was more water coming out of the ground or falling from the sky, so why bother investing time and money cleaning water that had already been used? Now, thanks to issues like ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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). ...

  • Final effluent monitors protect wastewater treatment efficiency

    Southern Water operates 370 wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), many of which are unmanned for most of the time and most have numeric environmental permits, so a network of online monitors has been established to improve treatment and protect discharge compliance. This has involved the installation of final effluent monitors at over 300 sites in a programme that has lasted for more than ten ...


  • 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 ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Improved Wastewater Treatment & Paper Mill Performance With New COD Monitoring Technology

    The Nordic Wood Biorefinery Conference was held in Stockholm, Sweden during March 28-30, 2017. An abstract presentation authored by partners from VTT, Kemira, FPInnovations and MANTECH was presented during the conference. The PeCOD® Analyzer has the ability to enable pulp and paper mills to improve effluent treatment process and to optimize chemical programs, leading to proper ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Integrated Wastewater Management

    ' Appropriate wastewater management, within an overall water resources management program, is essential to responsible use of the environment and to affordable provision of services. Such management programs are best developed at a river basin or sub-catchment level. An approach is outlined for developing a wastewater strategy and an implementation plan for a river basin.' Integrated ...


  • Wastewater Treatment in Turbo Mode

    Sulzer turbocompressors type ABS HST are successful in wastewater treatment. Today, 2000 units are installed around the world—for example, in municipal plants like in the city of Sögel, Germany. Here, the turbocompressors not only reduced the operating costs but also helped the plant to cope with load fluctuations. The secret behind this success is an advanced design with proven ...

  • Optimizing Wastewater Treatment

    ' Growing volumes of both industrial and municipal wastewater are being discharged to surface waters but the treatment provided frequently is inadequate to protect the desired uses of the receiving waters. With limited resources in terms of both institutional capacity and finance, governments face difficult choices in optimizing their investments in municipal systems and establishing practical ...
