The wastewater industry has entered an exciting time, as new technologies are making it economically feasible to exploit resources, such as sewage sludge, which has traditionally been considered a problematic waste. Today, with the advancements being made, sewage sludge is seen as a resource which can be recovered and used for its high energy and nutrient content. CH2M's Global Wastewater Service Team Deputy Leader Todd Williams explores a specific example of technology changing the way resources are recovered to help with managing biosolids - thermal hydrolysis technology.
CH2M's Global Wastewater Service Team Leader Julian Sandino has been invited to present a paper and lead a panel at CIWEM’s SludgeTech 2016 conference, being held just outside of London next week. Julian will share his insight on how the industry can embrace disruptive technologies to manage risk in wastewater planning, as well as innovative ways we can work together to move the industry forward. Learn more about these technologies in his latest Access Water blog.
The Region of Peel currently serves more than one million consumers in the Greater Toronto Area (Canada) and supplies water through a purchase agreement to neighboring municipalities through two water treatment plants (WTP), Lakeview and Lorne Park. The Lakeview WTP, named Water Project of the Year in 2015, began operations in 1954 as a two-filter, 9 ML/D facility and was expanded as part of a regional water treatment and conveyance infrastructure expansion plan to provide capacity of 1,100+ ML/D. Additional High lift pumping capacity was provided through the extension of the recently completed High Lift Pumping Station, with a new pump bay, consolidating all high lift pumping in a single station. CH2Mer Lee Anne Jones is at the American Water Works Association's Annual Conference and Exposition this week and presented on, “Commissioning Of The 1,375 ML/D Lakeview WTP High Lift Pumping Station – Much More Than Just A Pump Start And Stop Exercise." Learn more about this project in today's Access Water blog.
Water is one of the major topics being discussed at this year’s Utility Week Live taking place in Birmingham, England, and many of the United Kingdom’s key water innovators, game changers and industry leaders will be speaking on various topics throughout the two day show, including CH2Mer Hinesh Mistry, who will be speaking on driving transformational change with building information modelling (BIM).
This week, the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) is hosting its annual Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference. CH2M Vice President and Sales Director and Water Design-Build Council President shares his thoughts on what's so progressive about progressive design-build. Connect with him in Charlotte, North Carolina this week, or read today's Access Water blog to learn more about the progressive design-build delivery method.
