The Modern Oxidation Ditch – We’re Not Just Going In Circles!

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

Is the oxidation ditch still a relevant technology? Oxidation ditches were developed in the late 1950s. These race-track configurations were originally designed for BOD removal with extended aeration and shallow tanks (large footprint). Evoqua entered the oxidation ditch space in 1968 with the introduction of the Orbal system. Since then Evoqua has evolved this technology to accommodate the challenges of our wastewater industry. Evoqua’s modern oxidation ditches are designed based on simultaneous nitrification-denitrification, multistage configurations to meet stringent nutrient limits, deeper tanks , and process controls to optimize energy consumption. This presentation will review the evolution of oxidation ditches and will present the value and opportunities that modern oxidation ditches can offer to our industry. Don’t ditch the ditch!

Increasing Treatment Capacity with ZeeLung MABR Technology – An Overview and Case Study

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

ZeeLung MABR (membrane aerated biofilm reactor) technology is an innovative solution that maximizes the treatment capacity from existing tank volumes while also reducing energy consumption. Conventional solutions require the construction of new tanks; other process intensification technologies are complex and energy inefficient. ZeeLung can increase treatment capacity by up to 50% in existing tank volumes, improve process resilience to upset conditions, be implemented quickly without the need for major civil works and save up to 50% of the energy required for process aeration.

The Yorkville-Bristol Sanitary District (YBSD) serves a population of 18,500 and has a treatment capacity of 3.62 mgd. Its facility was facing challenges, including population growth and new industrial contributions likely to exceed its rated organic capacity as well as a new total phosphorus limit of 1mg/L, requiring the footprint-constrained plant be upgraded. Rather than constructing a separate treatment plant on adjacent property, YBSD sought a retrofit solution that would minimize capital expenditure, avoid significant civil modifications to the facility and accelerate the implementation schedule versus construction of a new plant. YBSD chose to upgrade the plant with SUEZ’s ZeeLung technology in combination with enhanced biological phosphorous removal. The ZeeLung MABR system was commissioned in 2018 and is the largest MABR system in North America.

This webinar will provide an overview of ZeeLung MABR technology and the YBSD project.

Making Dewatering a Piece of Cake

Tuesday June 18, 2019 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

There are numerous technologies available for dewatering of sludge and slurry. Selecting the appropriate technology can be complicated and your application, budget and facility need to be considered in the decision process. Treatment with rotary press can be an efficient and cost-effective option.

During this 45-minute session our experts will discuss rotary press technology as compared to conventional treatment alternatives. Specific topics covered will include through put per foot print area, installation, augmenting capacity, operational requirements and anticipated dryness percentage.

Please plan on joining this session to learn how this proven, cost-effective dewatering technology can be efficiently integrated into your new or existing wastewater plant.

Presented by Carrie Gabrielse, Laboratory Manager, and Mike Jager, Product Manager.

Get A Ph.D in pH Shift Odor Control

Tuesday May 28, 2019 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

The pH level of your wastewater determines whether or not the neighbors can tolerate the smell of your pump station! This webinar illustrates how the pH of your wastewater affects the release of nuisance odors. There is a direct correlation between flow rates and the amount of chemicals needed to adjust the pH of your wastewater. Just like highways have rush hours in the morning and evening, wastewater has the same heavy use twice a day. The flow rate increases and decreases, necessitating the need for varying dosage levels. There is technology that will add the correct amount of chemicals based on flow rate that will mitigate odors regardless of the time of day. The neighbors will appreciate it! Learn how this technology works and how it can be applied to your community.

Nutrient Removal and Wet Weather Flow Management

Tuesday May 7, 2019 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

Historically, SBR’s have been limited in handling stormflow events. This presentation will highlight the flexibility of Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBRs) to treat a wide range of flows and ability to meet stringent effluent quality. Advances in control technology allow for high peak flow applications and meeting biological nutrient removal (BNR) requirements. The OMNIFLO® SBR MAX with Jet Tech technology is a true-batch SBR process designed to handle greater peak flows or storm water overflow (CSO) events. During peak flow events, the OMNIFLO SBR MAX system detects peak flows and automatically adjusts its cyclic operation to dissipate the surging influent flows across all SBR basins simultaneously.

Join us to learn how Evoqua’s SBR systems can help provide process resilience for wet weather flow management and provide superior nutrient removal in a small treatment plant footprint.

Treating More with Existing Assets through Ballasted Clarification Systems

April 30, 2019 - 6:00-7:00 AM ET

One of the many challenges facing municipal water companies is how to optimise the use of your existing waste water plant assets when throughput is increasing due to population growth. At the same time, many municipal waste plants have the additional challenge of tightening consents, requiring the plant to meet ever more challenging effluent targets.

Learn how Evoqua’s BioMag® and CoMag® ballasted clarification systems can help municipalities achieve new requirements with existing assets. Each process will be discussed, showing how their implementation can help overcome capacity bottlenecks and treat more to a better quality with no additional major civil investment. Recent case study experience in the UK municipal market will also be discussed.

The Science & Parameters Behind Odor Control Technology Selection

April 9, 2019 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

Urban sprawl has necessitated that residential housing is in closer proximity to wastewater infrastructure, whether that be collection systems, pump stations or treatment plants. This leads to elevated odor control management as a primary design consideration. As there are a great number of odor causes, there is no one size fits all solution. Choosing the correct approach is dependent on existing conditions, treatment requirements and budget constraints.

Please plan on joining this session to gain insight on how the science of odor control and source parameters can aid in the selection of the most appropriate technology or hybrid of technologies for your next project.

Water Balancing for District Metering

2/26/2019 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

For many years water utilities have been faced with minimizing water loss. Until recently, calculating water loss as a percentage of the total water treated was a widely accepted method. The problem was the figures could be easily misinterpreted, and little was being done to actually improve the amount of water lost.

AWWA has identified this problem as an opportunity to help water utilities understand, identify, manage, and improve water loss concerns by introducing M-36. It is recommended that every water utility accurately meter all water taken into its system and all water distributed from its system at its customers’ point of service. Water loss prevention methods such as meter verification, and leak detection are major activities where metering will be required as part of any water management plan.

Please join us for a Webinar to learn about how FLEXIM’s flow meter technology that measures the flow of liquids non-intrusively through proven clamp-on transit-time correlation technology and how it plays an important role in the water loss management plan.
