Tag: total suspended solids

Total suspended solids (TSS) is a water quality parameter used for example to assess the quality of wastewater after treatment in a wastewater treatment plant. It is listed as a conventional pollutant in the U.S. Clean Water Act. This parameter was at one time called non-filterable residue (NFR), a term that refers to the identical measurement: the dry-weight of particles trapped by a filter, typically of a specified pore size.

Underground Stormwater Storage Case Studies

Underground Stormwater Storage Case Studies

Underground retention and detention systems continue to increase in popularity as urban and suburban infill prompts careful consideration of proposed land uses on high-value real estate. Placing stormwater management underground frees up space for higher value land uses and greater return on investment. Additionally, trends toward water awareness and reclamation,

Catching Up

Catching Up

In the 1940s, two former music hall entertainers, Marcel and Nelly Tilloy, purchased an estate in France’s Rhône ­Valley, and by 1952 they had created Relais and Châteaux, with eight hotels and restaurants between Paris and the French Riviera. Today, the association has more than 520 partners around the world.

Inlet Protection for Storm Drains

Inlet Protection for Storm Drains

If a stream or other waterbody is showing an increase in sediment or pollutant contamination, nearby active construction sites are usually the first suspect. As any developer or construction crew chief knows, devices to stop runoff from the site are an absolute necessity.

A Florida Park Revitalized
Kissimmee Lakefront Park in Kissimmee, FL, desperately needed revitalization. New facilities and buildings were planned and built, and paved surfaces were restored. Another big part of the project was installation of stormwater treatment best management practices (BMPs).

The park covers about 25 acres, situated between the downtown urban

PAVEDRAIN
The PaveDrain system is a patented, permeable paving surface designed with the joints between the blocks left open for an unprecedented infiltration rate (i.e., no rocks). Maintenance is accomplished with conventional street vacuuming equipment or the PaveDrain Vac Head. PaveDrain is ADA compliant, HS-25 load rated, manufactured throughout the US,

The First Line of Defense: Protecting Inlets and Storm Drains

The First Line of Defense: Protecting Inlets and Storm Drains

In stormwater management for both temporary and post-construction measures, inlet and storm drain protection is one of the first lines of defense. It’s also a measure that often works in combination with other best management practices (BMPs) as part of an overall erosion control or stormwater management program.

Case Study: Industrial Stormwater Treatment at the Port of Tacoma

Case Study: Industrial Stormwater Treatment at the Port of Tacoma

Background

Washington State has some of the most stringent industrial stormwater treatment standards in the United States with exceptionally low benchmark requirements for zinc, copper, and turbidity, also known as total suspended solids (TSS) or sediment.

Within the Port of Tacoma there are three industrial sites that were exceeding their benchmarks

Efficient Wastewater Treatment: Old and New Working Together

When it comes to waste­water treatment and processing, there are three challenges for operating plants, says Paul Rice, director of marketing for the Municipal Products and Services Division of Evoqua Water Technologies. One is getting more processing and capacity out of existing equipment, much of which is aging and requires
