Public Utility Uses Re-Injection Of Treated Arsenic Contaminated Water To Reduce Underground Plume Leaching
In December 2009, Siemens was contacted to treat groundwater for arsenic removal to achieve a 1 ppb goal. The 1 ppb goal limit is equivalent to 10 percent of the current drinking water standard in California and represents the first request at this low treatment goal in the US.
Asset Inspections Are Optimal Tool For Maintenance And Capital Improvement
Infrastructure asset inspection process is a tool that identifies deficiencies, creates backlog, establishes proactive maintenance, and monitors life cycles; as well as assists agencies in identifying projects for their Capital Improvement Program (CIP). These inspections can provide both a short-term benefit through work identification for repair and maintenance efforts and a long-term benefit of project identification of new capital improvements and enhancement.
