American Rivers Features Partnership with Corona and the Water Environment Federation Established to Explore Opportunities for Private Sector Green Infrastructure Financing
Since 2015, Corona Environmental Consulting has worked with American Rivers and the Water Environment Federation to explore opportunities for private market financing and construction of green infrastructure for stormwater management in Great Lakes cities. This partnership has continued through 2018, with the development of a stormwater “bank” in Grand Rapids, Michigan and optimization of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s green infrastructure grant program to leverage private capital in the Cleveland region. Through this work, the team hopes to establish guidelines that will assist other municipalities seeking to leverage private capital to meet their stormwater reduction and urban water management goals. Thanks to American Rivers for their continued partnership and for featuring our shared work on their website! Click the title above to read more.
Water Research Foundation (WRF) Publishes New Study Examining the Effect of Pre-Oxidation on Disinfection Byproduct Removal
We are proud to announce that the results of a two-year Water Research Foundation study done by Corona, in partnership with the cities of Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ and Calgon Carbon have been published! Through this study, titled "Pre-Oxidation Prior to GAC Treatment to Control DBPs (4607)", the research team investigated the effects of pre-oxidation on disinfection byproduct (DBP) formation and adsorption of organics onto granular activated carbon (GAC) filters. They also analyzed the potential for chlorine to react with organics adsorbed on GAC to form DBPs if water with chlorine residual enters the GAC adsorber.

Corona Team Featured on WaterOnline.com for Hexavalent Chromium Treatment Using Strong Base Anion Exchange in California's Soquel Creek Water District
In collaboration with the Soquel Creek Water District, members of the Corona team helped to conduct bench- and pilot-scale tests demonstrating the effectiveness of strong base ion exchange in achieving hexavalent chromium compliance. Various methods for brine management we also evaluated. Direct brine reuse was found to be a feasible option based on pilot-scale testing results. More notable, however, is that ferrous sulfate was found to be a promising chromium VI reductant.
