  • Silt Fence installation efficacy: definitive research calls for toughening specifications and introducing new technology

    Introduction: Silt fence is a joke on many construction sites. It is often seen just blowing in the wind, or sagging and broken down. Some specifiers won’t utilize silt fence on their sites because it is too often installed improperly, and not maintained. Yet, the need for effective on-site sediment control has never been greater. Sediment-laden runoff has been shown to result in the loss ...

  • Optimization of the coagulation–flocculation process for the removal of natural organic matter fractions present in drinking water sources

    We used an experimental design to determine the best coagulation–flocculation mechanism and the optimal operating conditions for the maximum removal of the natural organic matter fractions (hydrophobic acid (HPOA) and hydrophilic neutral (HPIN)), which are the main factors responsible for irreversible membrane fouling and the generation of disinfection by-products (DBPs). Charge neutralization ...

  • Reuse of effluent discharged from tannery wastewater treatment plants by powdered activated carbon and ultrafiltration combined reverse osmosis system

    We evaluate the applicability of a reverse osmosis (RO) system that combines powdered activated carbon (PAC) and ultrafiltration (UF) to treat the effluent discharged from tannery wastewater treatment plants. Conventional treatment processes such as neutralization, clariflocculation, and biological processes are used to clean the effluent before feeding to the PAC and UF combined RO system. ...

  • Data normalization identifies performance issues - Case Study

    Introduction The Municipal RO Plant had been in operation for almost 18 years, producing ~290 gpm of permeate water for a city in Iowa, USA. It was one of the first RO plants in the state and the upper mid-west. In May 2008, city operators complained about a loss in system production. In response, the City contracted an RO membrane service provider to perform a cleaning regimen that produced ...

  • Power Plant Improves Operating Efficiency with Culligan Matrix Solutions

    Challenge A large chemical manufacture was challenged with boiler tube failures in its power plant, resulting in costly repairs and down time. The boiler tube failures were a result of the incoming water quality to the power plant. Until recently, the boiler make-up water was treated with a combination of carbon media filtration and softening. As a result less than 50% of condensate was ...

  • Gaviota pass steep slope, Santa Barbara County, California

    Faced with repair of a severely eroded steep section of pipeline right-of-way on the California coast, engineers determined that GEOWEB Cellular Confinement System was the only system capable of providing a cost-effective and appropriate solution. With a total slope length of 500 feet, a severe pitch of 1:1 and bare rock slope faces, four inch deep GEOWEB was installed in order to “perch” soils ...
