  • Explore customizable water quality monitoring solutions
  • Discover new water quality products: phosphate monitoring, vertical profiler, weather station
  • Rental & lease options for our technologies

 

Speakers:

  • Kole Peterson – 17+ years of engineering experience in water treatment and industrial applications. Kole is based in Denver, Colorado area
  • E.J Neafsey – With 20+ years of experience, EJ assists with customer system design needs on Eastern Seaboard and Canada. He also has extensive experience in utilizing prediction models for water treatment. As data scientist, he’s involved with system analysis

#2: Ultrasonic Algae Control in Municipal Drinking Water Reservoirs

16 Nov | 10am PST, 1pm EST

Until now, drinking water treatment has been focusing on in-plant strategies; taking the quality of the intake water as a given and designing the treatment process accordingly. By implementing a holistic approach, the quality of the intake water improves. As a result, water treatment becomes more sustainable and stable.

  • Listen & learn from current users of our MPC-Buoy system in drinking water applications
  • Current users will discuss their experiences with our system, including customers with 3+ years experience with it
  • Topics discussed will include EPA cyanotoxin limits, chemical savings, ROI, and water quality monitoring
  • Large devotion of time for Q&A for your specific questions
  • [Case studies]: Ramey Environmental Compliance & City of Archie

 

Speakers:

  • Moderators: Greg Eiffert – Director LG Sonic US, and EJ Neafsey – Chief Water Quality Specialist
  • Wayne Ramey from Ramey Environmental Compliance will discuss 2 reservoirs that he have the MPC Buoys deployed in Colorado
  • Rick Blundel from City of Archie, MO will share his experience with the MPC Buoy in their municipal drinking water reservoir this year

#3: Preventive Monitoring & Algae Control: Industrial & Water Re-Use Applications

30 Nov | 10am PST, 1pm EST

Do you have high nutrient water? Are pH and TSS a concern for discharge? Warm, stagnant, and nutrient-rich water creates the ideal conditions for algae to grow. In industrial ponds, lagoons, and towers, algae directly influence pH, TSS, and BOD levels, making water discharging difficult and risking compliance with strict government regulations.

  • Current users will discuss their application and success with the MPC-Buoy technology
  • How to monitor and set alerts for out of range water quality parameters
  • How controlling algae helps keep pH and TSS levels in check
  • Dedicated Q&A session for your specific questions related to solving algae problems
  • Case study: NIPSCO settling pond application
  • Case study Vallecitos Water District water re-use application

Speakers:

  • Moderator: Kole Peterson – 17+ years of engineering experience in water treatment and industrial applications. Kole is based in Denver, Colorado area
  • Brian Snyder – Senior Chemical & Environmental Compliance Specialist at NIPSCO. Brian has 5 MPC Buoys in place for 3 years and is now adding another MPC Buoy and our new Weather Station to a second reservoir
  • Dawn McDougle – Wastewater Treatment Plant Supervisor at Vallecitos Water District. Dawn is a wastewater treatment plant supervisor with 30 years of experience in the water treatment industry

#4: How-To Guide for Algae Control

7 Dec | 10am PST, 1pm EST

LG Sonic’s ultrasonic treatment is suitable for a wide range of applications and environmental conditions. During this webinar we’ll explain how you can easily integrate LG Sonic ultrasound into your current treatment strategies.

  • Why is algae becoming such a big challenge? What can you do to mitigate this problem?
  • Is ultrasound right for your reservoir/lake? How do you size the MPC-Buoy system?
  • What information is needed to determine if this is the right fit for your water body?
  • What and where should you monitor?
  • Through which KPIs will you assess project success?
