"Welcome to the D.C. Crazy Train, a brutal party-fueled, scandal-enhanced, media fast-pass ride barreling towards November’s presidential election. Whether you are Republican, Democrat, Socialist or a wigged-out Whig, common wisdom says not much action will be taken during a general election year in which more than 170 water and wastewater-related bills are being mulled over in Congress." - Authors George Vorsheim and Joseph Harmes on navigating the myriad federal bills covering the water and wastewater industry.

“I’ve analyzed historical data and we easily get three times the repair callouts for grinder systems as we do for our effluent sewer systems,” said Scott Monroe, general manager of Montesano. “Also, the duration of grinder unit service calls is twice as long as for the STEP units. I haven’t had one employee in 26 years that preferred grinder systems over effluent sewer systems – not one.” Read about liquid-only sewers here: https://www.wwdmag.com/sewer-systems/liquid-only-sewer-briefing

Bioreactor Booster

"Ballasted activated sludge enhances biological wastewater treatment processes with magnetite (Fe3O4) to ballast biological floc. Magnetite substantially increases the settling rate of the biomass, providing opportunity to increase mixed liquor suspended solids concentration, which enables more treatment capacity within the same tank."
