  • Oil in frac water testing

    The amount of water used in and produced by hydraulic fracturing of shale gas wells is in the millions of gallons per well. Whether the water is going to be taken off site for disposal or reused for re-injection, the flowback or produced water needs pretreatment to remove any residual oil from the wa-ter. Waiting for remote laboratory results can take several days to a week. The InfraCal TOG/TPH ...

  • Evaluation and Testing of Technologies for Brine Minimization at Eastern Municipal Water District

     ABSTRACT Eastern Municipal Water District (Eastern) in Southern California is facing increasing brine disposal challenges at its two inland desalter facilities. In most cases at inland sites, the disposal of brine involves either the dilution of the waste stream in another receiving body or the concentration of brine solutions (Truesdall et al., 1995). In the case of Eastern, brine ...

  • CASE STUDY - K5 Purefecta cartridge tested by Mycometer

    The Kinetico K5 drinking water station with Purefecta cartridge clearly passed the test when examined by the Bactiquant®-water method (US-EPA, verified technology) developed by Mycometer. The method is based on a highly sensitive fluorescence technology which is used to detect and quantify an enzyme activity in bacteria. The fluorescence produced is directly proportional to the content of ...

  • Bench-scale testing of SW desalination using NF

    A majority of Southern California municipalities, including the City of Long Beach, depend on water purchased from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. However, due to over-allocation of the Colorado River, this water supply could potentially be restricted in the future. Consequently, the Long Beach Water Department (LBWD) is considering the construction of a 10 million gallon ...

  • ANDalyze - Real Time Testing for Heavy Metals - Whitepaper

    Whitepaper on DNAzyme heavy metals testing technology. Water pollution is a worldwide problem affecting developing and developed countries alike. Heavy metal contaminants are one prevalent type of water pollutant. They are persistent in the environment once discharged and removal from source waters is necessary to ensure a clean drinking water supply. The problem of heavy metal pollution arises ...

  • Primary Drinking Water from Wastewater Effluent: Pilot Test Experience at the Miami Dade South District WWTP

    ABSTRACTThe Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (MDWASD) owns and operates the South District wastewater Treatment Plant in Goulds, Florida. This is a 225 mgd peak flowrate secondary oxygen activated sludge treatment facility that discharges effluent via deep injection wells. Based upon the detection of nitrogen species in the monitoring wells for the deep injection well system, MDWASD entered ...

  • Parameter Sensitivity of Hydraulic Conductivity Testing Procedure

    A methodology is presented that allows researchers to identify which parameters have the largest effect on key parameter(s), and thereby a priori direct investigations to concentrate on the most important area(s) of concern. Laboratory testing is often used in research to establish the effect of one or more parameters on one or more other parameters of concern. Because laboratory testing often is ...

  • Case study - Pure oxygen injection pilot test

    Introduction: The Moccasin Bend WWTP uses pure oxygen produced by a cryogenic oxygen plant for activated sludge treatment of the influent waste stream, which consists of municipal and industrial wastes. The waste stream contains a high proportion of high strength industrial waste, which results in a typical COD loading of about 2000 mg/L, which is approximately four times the strength ...

  • Pilot-Scale Biofilter Test for Treating Zimpro Odors

    The thermal sludge conditioning process of U.S. Filter/Zimpro Corporation, Rothschild, Wisconsin (Zimpro process) is primarily used to improve dewatering characteristics of the waste sludge. The process entails a partial breakdown through oxidation and hydrolysis of complex, high molecular weight organic compounds, such as, proteins, fibers, carbohydrates, and fats. The partial breakdown of ...

  • Companies and MBAs test new sustainability SWOT

    At last week’s Net Impact conference, WRI challenged teams of attendees to come up with what was essentially a “mashup” of megatrends and environmental challenges. The teams then engaged in ...

  • Pilot Testing Microfilters and Cloth-Media Filters for Lake Augmentation

    ABSTRACTMicrofiltration and cloth-media filtration were pilot tested for plant expansion and water supply augmentation purposes. The performance of the pilot units was assessed by evaluating key influent and effluent data, including suspended solids, turbidity, total phosphorous, hydraulic loading rate, flux, and chemical addition. Results showed that one of the cloth-media filters, and both of ...

  • Aruba promises the best water

    Aruba is a Caribbean Island located eighteen miles off the coast of Venezuela. The Island is extremely arid, with no natural fresh water source available. The Island is dependent on seawater desalination to meet its entire potable water requirements. An Island population of approximately 80,000 and a thriving tourist industry of over 100,000 visitors annually, demand a reliable supply of potable ...

  • The Water Conditions in Ethiopia, Part One

    In August, I was able to visit northern Ethiopia to look at some of the drinking water issues. As you might guess, there are many, ranging from polluted water to almost no water at all. That made it interesting to discover the inhabitants of Adwa and Aksum rely on a reservoir. The reservoir water is treated first by aeration to oxidize iron, then with a flocculant which attracts dirt like a ...


  • Detection of volatile organic compounds in waste water

    A standard Hiden HPR-40 has been used for the detection of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in water. This forms an important monitoring procedure for any installation that uses or produces such compounds and performs testing to help ensure that they do not impact on the environment. Such testing often forms mandatory government legislation for businesses. The data show the detection limits and ...
