The contest, which began on April 19, offers one municipal and one industrial wastewater treatment plant the chance to receive free Hach equipment by creating a video or PowerPoint explaining how they could improve their treatment process with new equipment.
Entries are judged on creativity, expected results from the products requested, expected impact of the award, and the extent of need.
The contest is designed to help municipal wastewater treatment plants and industrial sites understand the benefits of increasing their nutrient monitoring to optimize nitrogen and phosphorus removal.
“More frequent monitoring will help plants See the BIG Picture of their operations, thereby decreasing expensive chemical and energy costs while helping address one of the most sensitive environmental issues in wastewater treatment,” according to Bob Dabkowski, Wastewater Specialist with Hach Company.
Dabkowski continued, “Currently, most plants only do required nutrient monitoring, so they’re unable to adjust chemical dosing or aeration to the specific changes occurring in real-time.”
Once the Grand Prize winners have been selected, one of the remaining top 13 entries can win the “Fan Favorite” prize of $40,000 in Hach equipment. Voting will be held from September 1 through November 13 on www.hach.com/bigpicture.
All entries must be submitted by August 31 to be entered in the contest. The two Grand Prize winners will be announced on October 18 at WEFTEC and the Fan Favorite will be announced on November 15.
