Protecting the Puget Sound - Process Management Optimization for Nutrient Reduction

The Puget Sound Nutrient Reduction Project is a collaborative effort in the Seattle/Tacoma region of the State of Washington to improve water quality, support salmon and orca recovery and increase the Sounds’ resiliency to climate impacts. Specific efforts are being implemented to decrease nitrogen levels. New regulatory permits will challenge local wastewater treatment plants to effectively monitor and manage nitrogen, and Hach can help. With over 80 years of expertise in water analysis, process control and automation, Hach is helping facilities improve their processes and reduce nutrient discharge. This pre-recorded webinar explains how.
