This week's NEWS

States address Ground Water Rule. Los Angeles' water utility drops the ball—400,000 of them with millions more to come—to control bromate formation. The offbeat in the world of bottled water: What is fair? Firefighters bottle water and an Italian update. Climate change is addressed in AwwaRF research activities. The total coliform rule advisory group marches toward completion. Another security guidance... this time it's the office. Hexavalent chromium in California, and Mother Nature seems to be the culprit.

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.

Bottled Water

  • Hospital facilities to stop offering bottled water (St. Louis Business Journal, May 28)
    Commentary: The hospital cites environmental reasons for taking the action. "Joe Doss, president of the International Bottled Water Association, was quoted as questioning why bottled water was being singled out rather than less healthy drinks such as soda, according to the article." Guess it would be unfair IF Coke, Pepsi and orange juice were also available free from every tap in the buildings!
  • Fire fighters getting into water business?? (KTLV, June 5)
    Commentary:"If you're going to buy bottled water anyway and our price is the same as a national brand, national brands aren't going to support your firefighters."
