Research Shows That AMS’ Online THM Monitoring Technology Is a Viable Method to Accurately Predict THM Precursor Content and Network THM Levels

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 Help Utilities Achieve DBP Compliance, Optimize Aeration Processes and Ensure Public Safety

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.

The Value of Online Predictive THM Monitoring

AMS CEO Rick Bacon caught up with Walid Khoury, a leading water consultant and influencer, on the value of predictive analytics in trihalomethane monitoring. Bacon discusses how AMS’ online THM and THM formation potential (THM-FP) monitoring solution helps to optimize water treatment processes and operations by accurately measuring THMs in real time within the plant and predict very precisely, what those THM levels will be in the distribution network, days and miles away.
