  2. 10 Technologies And Breakthroughs From ACE16

    This year's Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE16), held by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) from June 19 to 22, was the first following the tragedy of Flint — a time when the drinking water industry is under intense scrutiny.

  3. Arsenic Update: Top Technologies Revealed

    The federal regulation for arsenic has been in place since 2002, and yet many utilities remain noncompliant. The culprit isn’t treatment capability, but cost. It happens that the most popular treatment technique is also quite expensive — but it doesn’t have to be.

  4. ED vs. RO: The Benefits Of Electrodialysis For Desalination

    There is no doubt that reverse osmosis (RO) currently reigns among desalination techniques, if your metric is total number of installations. But a new competitor has arisen, at least for particular applications. If you have brackish water in the 2,000 to 15,000 ppm range of total dissolved solids (TDS), you may want to consider electrodialysis (ED) over RO.
