Tucson Pilots Potable Water Reuse

Tucson, Arizona boasts a diversity of cultures, architecture and peoples; and is one of the Mega-Trend cities of the 21st century. To meet the water supply needs of the greater Tucson Metropolitan area, the City of Tucson and Tucson Water are exploring potable reuse as a means to diversify and expand their water portfolio. In support of this effort, CH2M and the City conducted a pilot test of an innovative and sustainable potable reuse treatment scheme, which offers significant benefits to other utilities considering potable reuse as a viable option to addressing water supply needs. Check out the benefits provided from Tucson's potable reuse treatment scheme in today's Access Water blog or join CH2M Global Technology Leader for Water Reuse Larry Schimmoller for his session at the American Water Works Association's Annual Conference and Exposition on Monday afternoon.

San Francisco’s Southeast Plant Odor Characterization Study Identifies Odor Culprits

Last week at the Water Environment Federation's Odor and Air Pollutants Conference, CH2M's Scott Cowden presented a case study on San Francisco's largest and oldest wastewater facility, the Southeast Water Pollution Control Plant (SEP), which treats nearly 80 percent of the City and County of San Francisco's wastewater. As part of the city's Sewer System Improvement Program, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission worked with CH2M on a comprehensive SEP Odor Characterization Study to evaluate odor emissions. Read today's Access Water blog to learn more about this study and how its findings and recommendations are helping the city achieve its odor goals.
