  • Medium Pressure UV Ensures Peace of Mind for Operators of Wastewater Treatment Plant

    UV disinfection technology is fast becoming one of the most popular methods of destroying pathogenic microorganisms in wastewater. Not only is it a low cost technology, it does not produce any of the toxic by-products associated with conventional chlorine-based disinfection. An important factor that designers of UV systems have to take into account, however, are fluctuations in wastewater ...

  • Sophisticated monitoring array to address mystery of uranium plume

    Scientists have been puzzled for years about why uranium contamination in groundwater continues to exceed drinking water standards in an area located at the south end of the Hanford Site. The Department of Energy wants answers to why the uranium persists. Now, an innovative system has been installed for field experiments to better understand this complex site and to support future cleanup ...

  • UV-Treated Wastewater Is Just A Quarter Of Allowable Level At New Zealand WWTP

    Since installing two Berson medium pressure UV disinfection systems, wastewater at a treatment plant in New Zealand now contains a quarter or less of the maximum allowable level of microbes. The closed-pipe bersonInLine® units at the Te Awamutu plant provide full tertiary treatment for up to 40,000 people. The Berson systems were chosen following tests against low pressure open-channel UV ...

  • Wastewater treatment plant discharges can promote the development of antibiotic resistance in streams

    Widespread use of antibiotics has led to pollution of waterways, potentially creating resistance among freshwater bacterial communities. A new study looked for antibiotic resistance genes in a river basin in Spain, revealing that wastewater discharges can promote the spread of antibiotic resistance in streams and small rivers. Antibiotics are a cornerstone of modern medicine and have saved ...

  • 20 years of monitoring provides insight into New Zealand`s river water quality

    Two decades of monitoring of river water quality by NIWA has provided important information that is helping to care for New Zealand’s iconic rivers. More than 18 000 river water samples have been collected by New Zealand’s National Rivers Water Quality Network (NRWQN) over the past 20 years to monitor river conditions. The Network, which was set up to detect trends and conditions in water ...

  • Look Inside The Black Box – Presentations at WEFTEC 2016

    Monitoring and troubleshooting of wastewater treatment processes has been limited by our ability to see into the microbial world of these systems. The primary tool at our disposal is a simple microscope, not unlike microscopes that have been around for more than one hundred years. The microscope is able to give us some very quick information (i.e. filaments, pin floc, protozoans, etc) but ...
