Bringing Innovative and Affordable Solutions to a Costly and Complex Problem

AMS is committed to bringing intelligent water remediation solutions that can be fully controlled, monitored and optimized remotely, while ensuring that these systems are more accessible to a wider sector of the population through affordable financial models. As such, AMS has offered an official response to a white paper — “Economic Feasibility Analysis in Consideration of a Hexavalent Chromium MCL” — published by the California State Water Board (SWB), who is engaged in a process of consultation to determine at what level the regulatory limit for Cr(VI) should be set. AMS’ position on Cr(VI) regulation and comments to SWB are summarized in this technical brief.

AMS Brings a Proven and Affordable Hexavalent Chromium Treatment Solution to California’s Food Processing Industry

The state of California has a long history managing Cr(VI) in its drinking water and has been working to reestablish a standard by reevaluating the health information, as well as technologies that can provide effective treatment at lower costs. To address the lack of an effective and economically viable treatment solution for big cities, small communities, and industries, AMS has developed a low-cost Cr(VI) remediation system that removes this carcinogen to non-detectable levels at a fraction of the cost of traditional treatment systems.

A ‘Canary in the Mine’: Advocating for Real-Time Monitoring Solutions to Detect Lead in Drinking Water

Lead contamination in drinking water presents a serious threat to human health. While utilities monitor for lead by sampling infrequently only a small number of domestic points of use, these traditional lead monitoring programs lack the ability to measure the presence of all forms of lead; capture unpredictable changes in water quality that result in lead corrosion; and report the contamination risk before the water is delivered to the customer. MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™ from AMS is designed to offer communities real-time, continuous and dynamic water quality assessment of the presence of total lead in buildings or zones exposed to events that are the cause of acute lead contamination to reduce the risk of exposure.

AMS Talks: SafeGuard H2O Cr(VI) Remediation System Piloted at City of Los Banos, California

Watch the latest episode of AMS Talks featuring Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, who discusses AMS’ pilot demonstration of its SafeGuard™ H2O Hexavalent Chromium [Cr (VI)] remediation system at the City of Los Banos, Calif. The goal of the pilot is to demonstrate how SafeGuard H2O can effectively and affordably treat Cr(VI) down to non-detect levels and how the system can be fully controlled, monitored and optimized remotely without the presence of personnel on site.

City of Los Banos, Calif., Pilots Aqua Metrology Systems’ SafeGuard™ H2O Chromium Remediation System

AMS announces the pilot demonstration of its SafeGuard™ H2O Hexavalent Chromium [Cr (VI)] remediation system at the City of Los Banos, Calif. The pilot is being conducted in one of the city’s wells which has elevated Cr(VI) levels of 40 ppb and extremely challenging water quality due to the presence of uranium, high conductivity and hardness.
