Aeration Record-Breaker in Montrose, British Colombia

In the Trail Times, it was recently reported that: ‘…..the Village of Montrose has been successful in its application for funding under the Infrastructure Canada Grant Program for upgrades to the Village’s waste water treatment facility - a project that will modernize the 56-year-old plant….’ Not that one should be critical of a local newspaper that covers this village in south eastern British Colombia (two hours north of Spokane) – a publication which understandably knows that its readers won’t necessarily require all the finer details of a sewage treatment plant. However, it didn’t mention the fact that Montrose’s original aeration technology, installed by Lakeside Equipment….. back in 1963……is still in operation – and is very probably the longest lasting engineering of its type to still

Water Industry Innovations in 2018

As the human population of the world continues to grow rapidly, bridging the gap between supply and demand and providing access to safe, clean water has become a priority and a strategic imperative that must be continuously addressed. Thus, there is a clear need to seek out fresh ideas and new approaches to deal with the challenges of dwindling natural water supplies. Whilst there is still some methods to follow, advances in science and technology are helping to bridge this gap and drive the industry forward. The goal of many of these advances is to enhance sustainability and efficiency of production whilst reducing power usage and wastage to a minimum throughout water infrastructure networks. And the advances that will reach success will be scalable, at low cost, and ecologically

Desalination to the Rescue

The world has very little fresh water and it is running out. At tens of billions of tons yearly, the fresh water of the ice caps is falling into the salty sea which is already 97 percent of the world’s water. Rising sea levels will cause mayhem with the supplies of most of the world’s cities because they sit low down

Pumps & Flow Meters

Water Sampler with Drillhole Flow Meter

Options for water sampling were added to the PFL DIFF probe to accomplish controlled groundwater sampling. This configuration makes it possible to obtain pressurized water samples including dissolved gas. The sampling location can be accurately located on the basis of flow and SPR measurements. Flow and electrical conductivity measurements are conducted during sampling in order to monitor the sampling process. Rubber sealing disks are used to isolate the flow of water in the test section (fracture) from the flow in the rest of the drill hole.
