Achieving Phase IV in the AWWA’s Partnership for Safe Water is a big deal. But at Carlisle Borough, operating the water treatment plant according to Partnership goals and standards is even bigger. “We were the first water treatment plant in Pennsylvania to reach Phase IV,” recalls Peter Selan, director of the water plant, who retired in late February.
Driven by a passion for innovation, the Kenosha Wastewater Treatment Plant team has converted a messy, inefficient biosolids process into a state-of-the-art resource recovery and energy production system. The technology includes thickening centrifuges; thermal-chemical hydrolysis; high-solids anaerobic digestion with mechanical hydraulic mixing; biogas conditioning, dewatering and drying; and combined heat and power generation.
When Ray Pardee sees the award plaques on the walls at the Row River Water Treatment Plant, he feels pretty good. That’s because the awards don’t just represent quality finished water, they document how far he and his staff — Steve Norman and Sam Haynes — have come in just a few years learning to operate what is essentially a brand-new facility, drawing from Oregon’s Row River. It’s not just the new strainers and membranes, SCADA system and chemical feed apparatus.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
