The town of Gilbert, Arizona, has been using real-time THM data from the online THM-100™ analyzer since October 2017 to manage DBPs within its extensive network. The online THM-100 analyzer has acted at the brains of the THM remediation efforts in place across Gilbert’s reservoirs and pumping stations, providing operational certainty that the town did not have before.Read the case study.

Since 2014, the AMS online THM-100™ analyzers gave enabled Aigües de Barcelona to identify rapid changes in water quality in real-time, optimize its treatment processes and reduce related expenses while ensuring THM regulatory compliance.Read the case study.
A research project collaboration between the Water and Energy Technology Center at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Ma., and AMS tested a novel method for near real-time analysis of disinfection byproduct precursors and natural organic matter properties in water supplies. AMS’ online THM and THM Formation Potential monitoring technology was shown to be a viable method to accurately predict THM precursor content and network THM levels. The collaboration was funded by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
Real-time THM data from the online THM-100™ analyzer has helped the City of San Luis Obispo to achieve DBP compliance, optimize their aeration process and ensure public safety. In 2014 and 2015, the City of San Luis Obispo experienced high THM levels and staff began to research processes and practices that could head-off high THM recurrences. To ensure DBP regulatory compliance, the city chose in-tank aeration to mitigate THMs. While effective in the removal of THMs, in-tank aeration is a high-energy consumption process. Spending approximately $10K per month on power, San Luis Obispo began searching for an effective solution that would help reduce energy expenses while optimizing the treatment process and making it more cost-efficient. The online THM-100™ analyzer from AMS was valuable for aeration treatment system design, establishing continuous real-time THM data as vital assets in meeting regulatory compliance and protecting public health.Read the case study.
The R.E. Badger Filtration Plant turned to AMS’s online THM analyzer, THM-100™, to obtain continuous and real-time data to characterize THMs in the distribution system and allow it to have an early indication of potential THM formation problems before they become a compliance issue.Read the case study.
Aigües de Barcelona decided to monitor THM levels more frequently and they implemented the use of online analyzers to provide accurate and timely information regarding the THM formation in their network.Read the case study.
The Town of Tewksbury, Massachusetts piloted tested an aeration system for additional THM removal. Influent and effluent THM values were measured for the duration of the study using an online THM analyzer.Read the case study.
The Brunswick & Topsham Water District (BTWD) in Maine was receiving high THM results despite implementation of best practices. The use of the THM-100™ online THM analyzer has proven a valuable tool enabling BTWD to optimize operations, better understand treatment processes, resolve THM compliance concerns and validate laboratory performance and results.Read the case study.
For more than five years Scottish Water has relied on the reliability and accuracy of the online THM-100™ monitor to continuously monitor THM levels at a number of their facilities. The online THM monitors have allowed Scottish Water to consistently monitor, maintain, optimize and respond to any on-going THM concerns in a very timely fashion. The THM-100 proved especially valuable at the Tullich WTWs when the facility tested and implemented an aeration system to further minimize THM formation.

The City of Santa Cruz Water Department (SCWD) has adopted the online THM-100™ THM analyzer for DBP management. Real-time and reliable data on THM and THM Formation Potential levels within the Graham Hill Water Treatment Plant and distribution network have been provided to the SCWD by the online analyzer. The THM-100 online analyzer has aided the SCWD in daily operations and management of feasibility studies to reduce distribution systems THM levels.
