A&WMA and AAEES Joint Webinar

UV Light Treatment of Drinking Water: 240 mgd at a Penny per Household

E3 Operations Management Project

There are two sides to this story.

The webinar describes the challenges encountered in designing and building one of the highest throughput UV water treatment facilities in the US. You will learn how the project team created new evaluative tools and algorithms to achieve the intended disinfection performance.

But this is also a public health story. The project team will speak to the multiple health benefits and the economics of the project. We will also look at what it took to get the Cincinnati city council to give the project the green light even though there was no regulatory mandate.

We are offering PDH credits of 1.5 hrs. for this session. Each registration is a site license for up to 5 users to earn PDH. Please call if you have any questions. We look forward to presenting this timely webinar for you.

Switzerland's new natural swimming pool does away with the chemicals

Date: August 19, 2014

A whiff of chlorine is virtually synonymous with taking a dip in a swimming pool. While it helps to kill off bacteria, it also serves as a subtle reminder that you are wading around in chemically treated water (if tasting the odd mouthful just isn't enough). Switzerland's Naturbad Riehen swimming pool is entirely chemical-free, relying instead on a biological filter system to provide clean and natural water for thousands of patrons, no itchy red eyes in sight.

A town of around 20,000 people, Riehen sits just outside of Basel on the Swiss-German border. This section of the border wraps around Riehen in such a way that in 2006, the town's old swimming pool had to be demolished to make way for a tunnel connecting two German cities on either side. With the controversial roadway completed in 2013, the people of Riehen were quick to reclaim their territory.

"Furthermore, there was the understanding that the natural water is better for the skin and eyes and feels smoother and softer".

The first man-made natural swimming pools date back to the early 1980s in Austria,...click here to continue.
