For more than a decade, the Brunswick & Topsham Water District (BTWD) in Maine has been using the AMS THM-100™ online THM analyzer to help manage THM concerns. Over the years, the online THM analyzer has been proven a valuable tool for the utility, enabling it to better understand its treatment processes and optimize operations. In this episode of AMS Talks, Craig Douglas, P.E., General Manager at BTWD, discusses the district’s unconventional THM management journey and how the real-time data from the THM-100™ analyzer opened the utility staff’s eyes to the impact of the operational decisions they were making.Watch the video.

In this episode of AMS Talks, Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud speaks with Rick Bacon, CEO of Aqua Metrology Systems (AMS), about the significance and impact of the company’s recent achievements and award recognitions. First, AMS was selected by Sacyr iChallenges for its open innovation programs as one of the three companies appointed as Sacyr’s global partner for online water quality monitoring. In addition, it was recently announced that AMS was chosen as the North & Northwest Breakthrough Winner of The Spectator Economic Innovator of the Year Award in partnership with Investec.Watch the video.
Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, recently visited Joaquín Murría Martín and the BIOBOX team at their facility in Zaragoza, Spain, to see the first BIOBOX® Nitrate being prepared for shipment to the US. BIOBOX Nitrate transforms nitrates in drinking or wastewater into harmless nitrogen gas through a biological process, eliminating nitrates without producing polluting byproducts. This fully automated, turnkey containerized nitrate treatment system integrates AMS’ online Instran™ nitrate analyzer for continuous, real-time control of system performance. The patented BIOBOX biological denitrification system, which is certified by SGS and NSF for the treatment of drinking water, urban or industrial wastewater, and reuse, can be deployed rapidly at the thousands of sites in the US where nitrates put at risk human health and the environment. Together, AMS and BIOBOX are delivering a transformative, intelligent and reliable nitrate treatment solution.Watch the video.

The City of Alamosa, Colorado, evaluated the SafeGuard™ H2O arsenic removal technology to replace the use of bulk ferric chloride. The evaluation demonstrated the technology’s ability to provide effective and reliable arsenic removal below 5 ppb with a ferrous dose of 6.5-8 mg/L that was generated on-site and on-demand. The demonstration also evaluated the purity of the in-situ electrogenerated ferrous reagent compared to bulk ferric chloride, showing SafeGuard™ H2O’s ferrous reagent precursor to be of higher quality. In this episode of AMS Talks, Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud speaks with Roy Sanchez, CWP, Water Plant Operator for the City of Alamosa, and Dr. Vladimir Dozortsev, Senior Product Manager for AMS, who discuss insights about this project and what prompted the City of Alamosa to undertake this arsenic removal demonstration.Watch the video.
Ferric chloride is a water treatment chemical widely used to remove impurities in water and wastewater. While ferric chloride is effective and approved for use in a range of applications, there is a lack of adequate quality controls and certification for this bulk chemical. Ferric chloride contains a range of contaminants, including manganese, chromium, arsenic, zinc, lead, and copper that can be found in high concentrations and can be very harmful to human health. In addition, ferric chloride is an extremely corrosive and potentially hazardous substance that requires it to be handled and stored with care, driving the cost of treatment. In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, and Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud discuss the use of ferric chloride as a water treatment chemical, and the need for alternative solutions that do not contaminate our water supply.Watch the video.
AMS is exhibiting in the Innovation Hub at AWWA ACE23 in Toronto, Canada.

Approximately 50% of water and wastewater utilities experience delays in chemical availability due to supply chain disruptions. According to McKinsey & Company’s January 2023 Chemicals Practice Insight “A new operations formula for the chemicals sector,” 2022 was a tumultuous year for the global chemical sector which faced spiraling costs, looming skills shortage, and pressure for decarbonization. So, what does this all mean for the water industry? In this episode of AMS Talks AMS CEO Rick Bacon and Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud discuss critical chemical supply chain risk and explore solutions to help mitigate exposure to those risks in the water industry.Watch the video.
In December 2022, the State of California published its long-awaited recommendation for a regulatory limit for hexavalent chromium (Cr6) in water of 10 ppb. According to the California State Water Resources Control Board, there are more than 2,600 community systems with elevated Cr6 levels serving nearly 13 million people. This proposed regulation unequivocally identifies AMS and its in-situ stannous generation technology, SafeGuard™ H2O, as the best available technology to treat Cr6 and provide safe drinking water to the millions of consumers across California, many of whom live in underserved communities. Watch the latest episode of AMS Talks featuring AMS CEO Rick Bacon and Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud who discuss how this proven and cost-effective solution can treat most of the wells with high Cr6 levels, giving a peace of mind to water utilities impacted by this new regulation.Watch the video.
