Veolia & AMS Instrumentation Validated by Battelle
In 2014 the Air Force was concerned about possible Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) violations pertaining to total coliform and disinfection by-products at a number of their facilities. On behalf of the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) Battelle conducted a demonstration and validation of real time water quality monitoring technologies manufactured by Veolia and Aqua Metrology Systems to develop a comprehensive water monitoring approach to proactively address concerns pertaining to potential SDWA violations. Battelle operated the technologies from May 2015 through August 2016, the instruments proved successful and could be transitioned to broader Air Force use. An overview of the demonstration and validation project has been compiled into a presentation.
A California Water Utility experiencing elevated levels of hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] in their drinking water supply is the first commercial application to use the MetalGuard™ Cr(VI) real-time water quality monitor developed by Aqua Metrology Systems. The monitor was installed to provide high frequency, reliable, and accurate data on hexavalent and total chromium levels during the pilot test of a Reduction/Coagulation/Oxidation/Filtration (RCOF) process.
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.
Aigües de Barcelona, the leading water utility in Spain, has received accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Standard for the use of Aqua Metrology Systems’ online THM-100™ analyzer to continuously monitor trihalomethanes (THMs) in their dinking water supply network servicing 3,000,000 million inhabitants across metropolitan Barcelona. In addition to providing the utility with contract compliance and process optimization data, THM readings can now be used to submit regulatory compliance data.
Rick Bacon, CEO Aqua Metrology Systems, shares his insights into the online instrumentation market with the Editor of WaterWorld Magazine. A new online analyzer for measuring THM Formation Potential is also discussed in the interview along with Aqua Metrology Systems’ unique 5 year warranty offered on all THM and trace metal analyzer products.
Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources in conjunction with Sub Rosa Monitoring LLC has developed a fully automated and self-calibrating water quality monitoring system to measure surface and subsurface fluid flow and ground water quality for a copper mine in Arizona. After evaluating a variety of trace metals analytical approaches for integration into the broader water quality monitoring system, the University of Arizona selected the SafeGuard™ Duo online/offline analyzer from Aqua Metrology Systems due to its automation and precision.
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.
The Shades Mountain Filter Plant operated by the Birmingham Water Works Board (BWWB) has benefited from the real time high frequency data on daily THM values provided by the THM-100™ online analyzer. The online analyzer has proven valuable to THM mitigation strategy and optimization.
AMS Introduces Reliable Trace Metals Analysis In 5 Minutes
Aqua Metrology Systems has introduced an innovative and proprietary analytical method on their SafeGuard™ system that provides measurements of trace metals in 5 minutes without compromising accuracy levels.
