  • Drinking water quality control: control charts for turbidity and pH

    Water treatment processes are required to be in statistical control and capable of meeting drinking water specifications. Control charts are used to monitor the stability of quality parameters by distinguishing the in-control and out-of-control states. The basic assumption in standard applications of control charts is that observed data from the process are independent and identically ...

  • WaReg protects homes from flooding in Sweden - Case Study

    Location: Backaryd, Sweden Customer: Backaryds Vattenverk Problem: Backaryd Water Treatment plant backwash their filters regularly. During this process water is released into the town sewer network at a rate of 16 l/s. The towns sewer network is dimensioned to cope with 5 l/s so when it receives 16 l/s it becomes problematic for downstream residents. When the backwashing occurs, homes in ...

  • Seasonal organics variations: effects on the efficiency of water treatment processes

    Natural organic matter (NOM) in source water has created a lot of interest in the field of water purification. It is of particular concern for surface water treatment plants since it can produce undesirable disinfection by-products (DBPs), interferes with the performance of water treatment processes such as coagulation, membrane filtration, and oxidation processes, and leads to ...

  • Utilization rates, water demand and wastewater characteristics of a shared sanitation facility in North Namibia

    Shared sanitation facilities are often the only feasible option for sanitation provision in informal settlements. When implementing infrastructure for wastewater collection and treatment, information regarding quantities and constituent loadings is required. Up to now, such data are not available for shared sanitation. In order to provide this information, this study focuses on wastewater ...

  • Identification and assessment of water quality risks associated with sludge supernatant recycling in the presence of cyanobacteria

    This study focussed on the fate of cyanobacteria cells and associated metabolites during the sludge management processes that follow the conventional drinking water treatment train. The topic is of importance, as the release of metabolites during sludge treatment may pose a risk to water quality if supernatant is recycled to the head of the plant. The study of the kinetics of cell damage and ...

  • Tertiary Nitrification Process - Case Study

    Our nitrification process was originally developed for ammonia removal from activated sludge final effluent. However, it has since been applied to sludge liquor ("reject water", "centrate" or "filtrate") treatment. It is also suitable for nitrification of potable water sources (e.g. surface or ground water) prior to chlorination, to reduce the formation of chloramines. Ammonia removal down to 1 ...

  • Case study - Algae control in SAB Miller Clarifier

    Several LG Sonic e-line devices were installed in the SAB Miller Clarifier #1 in Tocancipa Brewery, Colombia in order to control filamentous algae. The LG Sonic e-line devices were installed in the summer of 2012.   The Challenge: Control Algae and Increase Process Efficiency In the summer of 2012, SAB Miller, Colombia contacted LG Sonic in order to provide a solution ...

  • Bacteriological water quality changes in parallel pilot distribution systems

    In a component of an extensive pilot distribution system (PDS) study, the effects of four different water qualities on biological stability in distributed water were investigated through identical (parallel) single-pass pipe arrangements. Through 24 months of monitoring, a number of key observations were made. Incorporation of a biological treatment step reduced the overall dissolved organic ...

  • A case study of the conversion of grey water to a flush water source in a Turkish student residence hall

    A case study of the conversion to grey water to a flush water source in a student residence hall of the Turkish megacity Istanbul is presented. Grey water from bathtubs/showers and washbasins is treated and reused for flushing toilets. Raw and membrane bio-reactor (MBR) treated grey water quality was monitored throughout one academic year using parameters to characterize organic matter ...

  • Control of disinfection byproduct (DBP) precursors by soil aquifer treatment (SAT): what length of hydraulic retention time (HRT) is necessary?

    The study attempted to determine the hydraulic retention time (HRT) required for soil aquifer treatment (SAT) to reclaim water as potable water in an aspect of controlling disinfection byproduct (DBP) precursors. In order to evaluate the removal of DBP precursors, the uniform formation condition was used to estimate the formations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Effluent ...

  • BM Respirometry applied to a novel control strategy of nitrification in a wastewater biological treatment

    In wastewater treatment plants, the biological nitrogen removal (BNR) has acquired critical importance, which makes that in the majority of the cases the overall process control largely depends on the control of this treatment. The normal aerobic process of nitrification is performed by specific aerobic living microorganisms and a lack of information on their bioactivity may be cause of confusion ...
