Water Quality Improvement through Water Storage Tank Mixing

 

Description: This 60-minute seminar will provide water system managers, operators, and engineers a practical understanding of the science behind applying mixing energy to water in reservoirs or tanks as a means to improve water quality in distribution networks. 

Outline:

  1. The basics of water tank mixing
    1. Understanding and measuring water tank stratification (temperature and chemical)
    2. Methods that attempt to achieve the results of a well-mixed tank
    3. Modes of tank mixing in recent history
    4. Impact of applying the right amount of energy to a water storage asset
  2. Equipment options and equipment form factors
    1. Mixer types – consider tank geometries, tank volumes, turnover, power availability and reliability
    2. Mixer hardware and components
    3. Properly specifying a tank mixer
  3. Case Studies:
    1. Improving disinfectant residual levels
    2. Improving system residual stability
    3. As a building block toward THM removal and active residual control
