  • Building A Better (Aeration) Mousetrap
    23 2015 Building A Better Aeration Mousetrap Jim Lauria the Vice President of Sales and Marketing with Mazzei Injector Company joined Water Online radio to discuss unconventional water sources and what his company is doing to draw water from different sources One area that they have seen applications for is treating wastewater lagoons One of the benefits of this water is that it already has nutrients and biosolids On the other hand lagoons can also be problem areas They have potential to cause surface and ground water contamination if they go septic because of anaerobic activity noxious odors green house gases even a small aspect of breeding ground for mosquitoes Basically we re looking at how can we take this water treat it properly and then use it back in Lauria said Lauria believes aeration is really the way to go to avoid these problems However that comes with a few issues of it s own the least of which is that aeration is intrinsically energy intensive Right now a lot of people are using these surface aerators they are just whipping up the foam and there are dead spots and all kinds of things that we really feel aren t being treated This is in addition to maintenance and safety issues with each individual aerator floating on top of a lagoon The solution Build the better mousetrap We really feel that by doing some computational fluid dynamics CFD modeling and analysis we ve come up with a way to use our injectors and our nozzles so that we can make it into a whole system approach using pumping and the motive force of water to bring in air and use the the force of the nozzles to inject air down at the bottom underneath the surface and actually mix

  • Obama Admin Wants To Cut Water Use By A Third
    Industries View All Providers News Feature January 11 2016 Obama Admin Wants To Cut Water Use By A Third By Sara Jerome sarmje The Obama administration is pointing to a new goal for U S water conservation We have potential to reduce water usage by 33 percent This would bring us closer in line with other industrialized nations and could reduce the nation s total CO2 emissions by about 1 5 percent annually the White House said in a recent announcement The figure is part of a new strategy for water innovation announced in December with an eye toward how climate change is affecting water resources The new strategy includes an aggressive two part approach led by Federal agencies to address the impacts of climate change on the use and supply of our nation s water resources and calls on private sector and other stakeholder groups to help significantly scale up research and investment in water efficiency solutions according to the White House announcement In unveiling the new strategy the White House released a report on water issues It emphasized the use of existing technologies as the path to water conservation Much of the challenge according to the report is promoting the adoption of existing technologies Fewer than 10 percent of irrigated farms use advanced tools and technologies such as soil or plant moisture sensing devices commercial irrigation scheduling services or computer based crop growth simulation models to assist with water management decisions the report noted The same goes for seeking efficiencies in groundwater extraction Groundwater extraction should also be optimized to better monitor water levels and extraction volumes pump efficiencies reduce well interference and reduce energy costs e g optimizing pumping rates optimizing pumping times to lower energy costs utilizing alternative energy sources such as solar power or other
