  • Removing Chloramines from Drinking Water Supplies

    Historically, most public water supplies have been treated with chlorine to satisfy the standards set by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974. Since being established, there is reason to believe that the standards may be too lenient on the allowable contaminant levels in our drinking water. For instance, chlorine and other disinfectants react with organic matter creating ...

  • Removal of 17β-estradiol (E2) and its chlorination by-products from water and wastewater using non-imprinted polymer (NIP) particles

    Endocrine disrupting compounds and their chlorination by-products are two classes of emerging contaminants. Surface water and wastewater treatment technologies have limitations in removing these contaminants. This study evaluated the ability of non-imprinted polymer particles (NIP) to remove the endocrine disruptor 17β-estradiol (E2) and its chlorination by-products from water and wastewater. NIP ...

  • Effect of wastewater chlorination on endocrine disruptor removal

    Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are compounds of mainly anthropogenic origin that interfere with the endocrine system of animals and humans thus causing a series of disorders. Wastewater treatment plants are one of the major routes for transporting such chemicals to the water courses. In the context of this study, several chlorination batch tests were performed in order to assess the ...

  • Development of a portable filter for arsenic removal from drinking water

    In the present study, different grades of indigenously available activated alumina (AA) were screened for their arsenic removal capacity. For both As(III) and As(V), A1 (Grade 1, 0.3-0.6 mm) activated alumina has shown better removal efficiency. The optimum pH for the adsorption phenomena was around 7.0. Chlorine at a dose of 20 mg/l could completely oxidize As(III) to As(V), which also assured ...

  • Park City, Utah Arsenic removal from ground water

    Background Park City Utah Water, which serves a population of 6,500, has five water sources. Spiro Tunnel and Spiro Portal are two that were in need of Iron and Manganese removal as well as above limits for Arsenic. Filtronics was engaged by the engineering firm of Eckhoff, Watson and Preator (EWP), Salt Lake City, to perform pilot tests for the Park City Municipal Corporation. The ...

  • Scalewatcher Removes Scale from Baptistery

    The Church of Christ in Shiner, Texas is no longer experiencing scale build up on its baptistery immersion tank following the installation of the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. The Scalewatcher system has also improved the clarity of the water, enhanced the operation of the heater and drastically reduced the amount of chlorine required. ...

  • Effect of advanced oxidation processes on nonylphenol removal with respect to chlorination in drinking water treatment

    Any nonylphenol compounds found in water have to be removed since they are endocrine disruptors. In this study, natural water from the river Ebro fortified with nonylphenol compounds (4n-nonylphenol and technical nonylphenol) is used as a sample in order to simulate a real situation in drinking water treatment plants. The aim is to compare conventional disinfection with advanced oxidation ...

  • San Joaquin Valley California - Arsenic removal from ground water

    Background The San Joaquin Valley of California is approximately 220 miles long and varies in width to a maximum distance of approximately 80 miles. The occurrence of groundwater over the entire extent of the valley is abundant. Recharge for the varied depths of aquifers is from precipitation in the form of rain and the snow pack from the western Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. High ...

  • Evaluation of approaches for consumers to eliminate chlorine off-flavors from drinking water at point-of-use

    Chlorine off-flavors of tap water have caused dissatisfaction and distrust from some consumers, placing pressure on operators concerning water disinfection. Evaluating practical approaches for eliminating chlorinous off-flavors by consumers at point-of-use while avoiding production of toxic byproducts is a practical concern. Three recognized dechlorination methods: ultraviolet (UV) irradiation, ...

  • Removing biofilm from membranes – a practical approach

    Abstract Within the lifetime of most reverse osmosis (RO) systems some fouling will adversely affect membrane performance.One of the major foulants identified on lead membranes during a decade of membrane autopsy at the Genesys Membrane laboratory is biological fouling (biofouling). All raw water sources contain microorganisms such as algae, bacteria and fungi. They also contain ...

  • Removal of dissolved organic matter (DOM) from water with activated carbon and effective microorganisms

    Humic substances (HS) cause problems in water purification because of disinfection by-product (DBP) formation during chlorination. The efficiency of activated carbon (AC) adsorption as a method in drinking water treatment has been investigated in removing HS at different pH values (pH = 5; 6; 7; 8) in static equilibrium experiments. The degradation of HS was studied with an EM (effective ...

  • Ultraviolet Light Oxidation of Free-Chlorine in Water

    Chlorine is the most frequently used chemical for water disinfection. Many industrial and commercial manufacturing facilities cannot tolerate the introduction of chlorine into the process because of contamination and unwanted chemical reactions. Chlorine affects the flavour and odour of drinks and fluids, accelerates corrosion on process vessels and piping, and can also damage delicate process ...

  • Removal of dissolved hydrocarbons from production water by Macro Porous Polymer Extraction (MPPE)

    This paper presents the successful application of Macro Porous Polymer Extraction (MPPE) technology to remove hydrocarbons from the produced water of a natural gas plant. This water is discharged to the public watertreatment facilities and is subject to a maximum hydrocarbon contents. Elf Petroland together with Akzo Nobel investigated the use of a Macro Porous Polymer filled with an extraction ...

  • Microcystin-LR removal from drinking water supplies by chemical oxidation and activated carbon adsorption

    Microcystin-LR (MC-L) is among the most toxic and frequent cyanotoxins found in surface water and a provisional value of 0.001 mg/L is indicated by World Health Organization guidelines for water for human consumption. Among the conventional processes used for surface water treatment, the most effective in microcystin removal are chemical oxidation and adsorption. This study investigated two ...

  • Chlorine requirement for biologically stable drinking water after nanofiltration

    There is considerable interest in minimizing the chlorine residual in Japan's tap water because of increasing consumer complaints about the chlorinous odor of drinking water. However, minimization of the chlorine residual requires stricter control of biodegradable organics in finished water to ensure biological stability during water distribution. In this context, we investigated the ...

  • Effect of advanced water treatment on behaviour of residual chlorine and development of chlorine control method in distribution systems

    The behaviour of residual chlorine concentration in drinking water treated by the mid-chlorination or the advanced water treatment (AWT) was investigated. The AWT removes dissolved organic matter more than the mid-chlorination, thus the rate of residual chlorine reduction is decreased. The analysis of chlorine concentration data measured by automated continuous monitoring devices revealed that ...

  • Behaviour of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants during drinking water treatment

    Flame retardants are chemicals that are added to plastic materials in order to prevent them from catching fire and to slow down the burning process. Due to the widespread occurrence of flame retardants in the environment, it can be expected that especially the more hydrophilic compounds already contaminate raw water resources of water utilities. In this paper results of laboratory-scale ...

  • Algal control and enhanced removal in drinking waters in Cairo, Egypt

    Algal blooms at the major water treatment plants in Egypt have been reported since 2006. While previous studies focused on algal types and their correlation with disinfection by-products, correlation between raw water quality and algal blooms were not explored. Therefore, a survey of Nile water quality parameters at a major water intake in the Greater Cairo Urban Region was conducted from ...
