  • Utah's DWSRF Intended Use Plan for 2008 (PDF file, 244 K)
    Commentary: Utah's concise IUP gives a clear snapshot of what the SDWA DWSRF program funding picture is. As a smaller state, Utah gets a minimum 1% of the total DWSRF funds available through USEPA, puts up its required 20% state match and, coincidentally, sets aside 20% of the federal allotment for the various allowed set-aside programs (training, certification, surveillance, technical assistance, reporting, etc.). About $110 million has been generated for drinking water programs and improvements since the SRF program was initiated. 
  • Washington state has a detailed emergency response information package for water systems

  • Another bogus comparative assessment of public drinking water (Forbes, April 14)
    Commentary: These ridiculous, unscientific "comparisons" appeal to the lowest common denominator of intellect... but they apparently sell magazines. Stay tuned for these sequels:  Sports Illustrated - How to pick the World Series winner by examining Major League cities' Consumer Confidence Reports; Time - Determining the outcome of the 2008 Presidential election by looking at fluoride levels in key states; and Vanity Fair - The top 100 cities with water aggressive enough to remove red wine spills from white carpeting.

Malcolm Pirnie Membrane Filtration Services

Malcolm Pirnie The promulgation of the Long-Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) established the first federal regulatory framework for membrane filtration, including microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF), and reverse osmosis (RO) systems applied for rule compliance. Many states are expected to adopt this framework for membrane regulation as well.

Working in conjunction with the USEPA, Malcolm Pirnie has been involved in the development of the Membrane Filtration Guidance Manual in support of the LT2ESWTR. As a result, the company has in-depth expertise with respect to the new regulatory framework and how it will be applied to both new and existing facilities. Malcolm Pirnie can lend its unique experience to provide assistance throughout the project development process, including planning, piloting, equipment procurement, design, construction, and start-up, to ensure system compliance.

For more information, please contact Brent Alspach at BAlspach@pirnie.com.
