California: Las Galinas to Expand Water Recycling Capacity

WateReuse Association member Las Gallinas Valley Sanitary District is preparing to break ground on a three year, multimillion dollar project to replace its wastewater treatment facilities and expand water recycling capacity. The project will increase the plant’s recycled water production capacity from 1.4 million gallons a day to 5.4 million gallons per day. The new facility will produce cleaner water and discharge less of it into the bay. Read More.

North Carolina: Cape Fear Considers Water Reuse for Long Range Needs

The Cape Fear Public Utility is drafting a long-range plan that would add recycled water to its water supply portfolio. As saltwater intrusion, increasing temperatures, pollution, and population growth threaten existing supplies, Cape Fear is considering recycled water for a variety of uses. The utility sees water reuse as a practice that would conserve the finite supply of water from local aquifers and the Cape Fear River. Read More.

Webcast: Selecting the Best Technology for Water Reuse: Overview of the MBR Process

Is membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology the right solution for your water reuse application? Offering a smaller footprint, smaller price tag, and high quality treatment, MBRs are a compelling solution for advanced water reuse applications. Please join us at April 10 at 2 pm eastern for a webcast that will provide an overview of the MBR process using flat plate MBR membranes. You will learn about the types of membranes and benefits of each, operations, maintenance, and screening. If you are considering an MBR system or maintaining an existing system, this presentation will provide you with a deeper understanding of the MBR process and the information you need to decide if MBR technology makes sense for your facility.
