REAL ESTATE SHOWCASE

Learn now how water is processed in Denton Few people, when turning on a faucet, give much thought to where their water comes from or how it gets to them. Only within the past 100 years or so has safe and steady water supply become something that residents can take for granted. This achievement, often overshadowed by more dramatic technological developments, is nonetheless one of the most important advances in modern civilization, according to City of Denton pamphlets. Drastically reducing water-borne diseases and fostering new developments in technology and industry would not be possible without a clean, consistent supply of water. The Safe Water Drinking Act was originally passed by Congress in 1974, and was amended in 1986 and 1996. Originally, the Safe Water Drinking Act focused primarily on treatment as the means for providing safe drinking water at the tap, but later amendments expand the Safe Drinking Water Act to protect residents’ health from source to tap. The City of Denton Municipal Utilities Department operates and maintains the public water supply system for Denton residents. Denton has two sources for obtaining its water – Lake Lewisville and Lake Ray Roberts.

Denton currently holds water rights for up to 24 million gallons per day from the two lakes. A dual intake structure on the north shore of the Hickory Creek arm of Lake Lewisville gives the Lake Lewisville Water Treatment Plant operators the option of withdrawing raw lake water from two different levels in order to provide the best water quality. Before the raw water leaves the raw water pump station, it receives its first treatment – a dose of potassium permanganate – which improves the raw water’s taste and odor. Adding the chemical before the 9-mile journey from the raw water pump station to the treatment plant provides time for the chemical reaction to develop along the way. Raw water flows to the Lake Ray Roberts Water Treatment Plant through the intake structure built into the dam and is regulated with by-pass piping and a flow control valve that allows it to gravity-flow through the plant when the lake levels are high, reducing the electrical operating costs of the facility. Raw water pumps are utilized when lake levels are low. Lake Ray Roberts raw water receives its first treatment, preozonation, at the plant. Preozonation conditions the raw water and makes it easier for the organic materials and

Lake Lewisville is one of two area lakes that provide water to Denton residents. debris to be removed as it flows through the plant. This process actually reduces the amount of chemical coagulants needed to clean the raw water. The Lake Lewisville Water Treatment Plant, completed in 1957, had an initial capacity of 4 million gallons per day. Plant expansions in 1962, 1972 and 1988 took the plant to 8, 16 and its current capacity of 30 million gallons per day respectively. The plant has kept pace with changing water quality standards through nearly 50 years of service. The Lake Ray Roberts Water Treatment Plant began construction in June of 2001 and officially went online in May of 2003. The current capacity of

the plant is 20 million gallons per day, but the plant has been master planned for an ultimate production capacity of 100 million gallons per day to sustain future growth and provide the city with high quality drinking water well into the 21st century. The new water plant is a secure, state-of-the-art facility that incorporates a superior water disinfection system, a backup power generation system and cost-cutting production methods that can be regulated from a central location. Coagulation, flocculation, and sedimentation are all basically the same at the plants. After sedimentation, the settled water flows into the intermediate ozone contactor.

Ozone disinfection is about 1,000 times more effective than chlorine at destroying bacteria and viruses in water. After the ozonation process, the water moves through filters similar to the Lake Lewisville Water Treatment Plant. Following filtration, the water flows to the transfer pump station where it is pumped to the clearwell or ground storage tank. Both plants then transfer the treated water from the clearwells to the distribution system using high-pressure pumps. The distribution system has booster stations that reboost the water to the various pressure zones and water towers located in Denton.

A kitchen worth cooking in Put everything in its place so there’s space for you to prepare, cook and enjoy meals year-round less expired food.” To manage the oft-untidy snack cabinet, Lea Schneider, owner of organizerightnow.com has a solution. “Use an easy-toreach large basket placed at eye-level to hold opened packages of things, such as cookies, crackers, chips and granola bars,” she says. Then, use a labeled area of a top shelf to hold the new, unopened replacement boxes. “Not only does this system encourage family members to eat the already opened packages first, but makes it much easier for you to judge when you need to stock up,” she adds. Remember not all dry goods belong in the pantry, says Dean Zanella, executive chef at Rhapsody restaurant in Chicago. “Some things make more sense if they’re closer to where you’ll be cooking,” he says. “I keep my spices in a cabinet by the stove rather than the pantry, so I can easily reach them when needed.” Zanella says this also opens up room in the pantry for bulkier items or appliances you don’t always use. “Since I keep some dry goods throughout cabinets in my kitchen, the bottom shelf of my pantry is free for things like my blender.”

The key to an organized kitchen is keeping only the items you use regularly - and purging those you don’t.

By Cathy Cassata CTW Features

Deciding what to cook for meals is challenging enough without having to fight through an unorganized kitchen. Make this dreaded daily decision a bit easier by whipping the kitchen into

cooking and dining shape with helpful tips from chefs, a kitchen designer and a professional organizer. Pantry perfect If your dream walk-in pantry is a nightmare of a mess, divide it into zones. “Put

items you don’t use often up high, items that are heavy down low and items you regularly use at eye-level,” says Marlene Buckner, designer and owner of The Urban Realm in Portland, Ore. Make rotating items a habit, says Devin Alexander, host of

Healthy “Decadence” on FitTV and author of “The Biggest Loser Cookbook” series. “Instead of putting a new can of soup in front of an older can, put it behind,” she says. “It takes a little longer, but it’s worth it because you’ll eat fresher food and throw away

Stuffed with stuff Before you begin a mad hunt for the best spot for dishes, glasses, utensils and gadgets, Schneider says take everything out and purge. “Only keep one of each item unless you are sure that you use two at the same time. For instance, keep two ladles if you tend to make two different pots of soup at once,” she says. Alexander agrees and says multiple sets of certain things can actually make your life in the kitchen easier. “For things like measuring cups and


maker,” she says. Zanella follows this method regularly. “I keep utensils that I’m going to use for certain types of cooking with each other. I have a drawer where my measuring cups and spoons are that I use for baking close to my pans for baking, and my silverware drawer is near my dinner table. while my utensils drawer is closer to my stove.” Fridge frenzy Stretch your grocery budget and keep your family healthy by organizing your refrigerator weekly, Schneider says. “Before making a week’s menu and grocery list, clean out the expired foods, wipe up messes, make a note of leftovers that need to be eaten and incorporate those items into your next week’s meal plan,” she says. To keep track of leftovers and opened items, Alexander says to mark cooked dishes and opened items by labeling them with the date they were cooked or opened. Then place

Keep oft-used items like utensils and spices near your cooking area, above. To make space in the fridge, cut up fruits and veggies into small pieces and store them in containers. They’re easier to see, so they’ll get used quicker, and you’ll create space for other items.

more than one ice cream maker? Decide what you’ll need more of and what you won’t.” Once you decide what’s staying in the kitchen, Schneider

suggests applying the “next-to” rule. “If an item has a companion piece, it should be stored next-to that item. Coffee should go next to mugs, which should be near the coffee

Nice and tidy from the get-go If you’re remodeling a kitchen or starting from scratch, design an organized kitchen with these tips from Marlene Buckner, designer and owner of The Urban Realm in Portland, Ore. Pantry When a walk-in pantry isn’t an option, create the same amount of linear feet of storage by using cabinetry, such as chef’s pantries, bulk food pantries and specialty pantries with after-market inserts. Ideal size for shelves is 6 inches deep.

spoons, if you have dry and wet ingredients, you don’t want to extend your cooking time by washing and drying a measuring spoon in-between steps. But, do you really need

the stuff that will go bad first near the front of the shelf. “If you have children or multiple people in the house cooking, it’s a great way to communicate what needs to be eaten when,” she says. Zanella says to be honest about what will be used. “Think about when you’re going to use that condiment again and if you really need it,” he says. “There’s no point keeping something in the fridge for months for a recipe you’ve been meaning to get to, but won’t.” To make space, Zanella recommends cutting up fruits and veggies into small pieces and storing them in containers. “Instead of whole grapefruits taking up my produce bin, I’ll cut them up, store them in containers and put them on a shelf,” he says. “This way I can’t miss them and I can use the produce bin for other things that won’t expire as quickly.”

Corner-wall Susan For ones with an angled door, turntable carousels are available to bring items from the back around to the front within easy reach.

Drawers and dividers Skip base cabinets with shelves and rollouts. Install drawers instead, since they open with one motion. To avoid losing items in the back of drawers, divide up drawers and keep rarely used utensils in the back. Trash rollouts Trash and recycle rollouts can be installed under sink bases or base cabinets to help keep outbound items out of the way until they are removed from the kitchen. Counter space Keep at least 24 inches on one side and 36 inches on the other side of sinks and cooking areas to maximize working space. © CTW Features

Happy Medium With happy-go-lucky hues like honeysuckle pink, it’s never been easier to organize with mood in mind By Marilyn Kennedy Melia CTW Features

Get happy – that’s the collective message home- and interior-products makers are telling folks this year. The world has been a pretty tough place for the past decade, racked by war and recession. For 2011, expect to see some “happy” colors in everything from dishes to furniture to throw pillows, says Leatrice Eiseman, director of the Pantone Color Institute who also writes the morealivewithcolor.com blog. The Pantone Institute, which tracks color trends, declared honeysuckle pink its 2011 Color of the Year because “it’s an instant pick-me-up,” Eiseman shares. But color is just one way to add a dose of cheer. Of course, just as each of us defines happy in our own terms, mood boosters are a matter of individual taste. Still, experts can point to several themes that make a home a happy refuge: Clear and Comforting Sure, a bright throw tossed over a sofa can lift your mood – but only if the view isn’t obscured by piles of unread mail or other anxiety-inducing clutter. “What do we want to see, and what do we hide?” asks Seattle architect Milan Heger. Developing an “aesthetic discipline” to get in the habit of clearing away clutter is the primary step towards a happy home, he says. “First we cre-

This ‘Sunset’ rug from Angela Adams adds both a burst of color and texture to a room. ate a good way to store objects,” Heger says. Book shelves, cabinets or even neat piles keep the distractions in their place, he adds. Color-Coded Organization clears your space, which in turn clears your mind. Our own reluctance to organize is the only obstacle in the way to clear-headedness. Combine another mood lifter –

namely color – to spur yourself into action. Kate S. Brown, a certified professional organizer in Sarasota, Fla., shares that colorful organizing tools and files prompt people who hate to put objects in their place or file get started. “For instance, I’ve seen people who have purchased photo files in a color that coordinates with their room get really excited about using the

files – and then after they’re through they’re even more satisfied,” Brown shares. Emotion-enhancing hues vary according to the individual and with the space involved, underscores Anitra Mecadon, host of the DIY Network series “Mega Dens.” “For example, red is a passionate color that stimulates the senses – it’s great for adding life to an active room,”

says Mecadon. On the other hand, Mecadon adds, you can achieve happiness with “some great soothing earth tones, or pale shades of green-blue, which are peaceful and calming.” Eiseman adds, “Our favorite colors in surroundings always make us feel better. Each color has a different effect, but all bright colors can give us a lift.” Flower Power Take time to smell the roses. And put them in a vase. And set them out where you’ll view them often. Scientific studies, like one recently conducted by Rutgers University, find that flowers prompt immediate positive responses, and are even related to better social behaviors and memory skills. Moreover, the researchers find the boost is likely to last even after the bloom fades a bit. The Rutgers study finds women who received flowers reported more positive moods three days later. Small Change Just as you may need a break from your routine to rev up your spirits, adding a dose of difference to a couple of rooms every season can rev up the senses. “Utilize new candles, colors and scents,” suggests Kristin Andress, who runs the Web site imaginebeing.com. “Add different throw pillows to the couch or a lively rug to your foyer. The energy of your rooms will improve with simple changes here and there.” © CTW Features

Float On

04 06 11

Anchor the family room with a ‘floating’ furniture arrangement to create space - or at least the illusion of it By Dawn Klingensmith CTW Features

Challenge: Open floor plans, though still popular, put design skills to the test because there are few walls to place furniture against. On the other hand, small spaces can feel as though the walls are closing in. Proposed solution: Pull furniture away from the walls and “float” it in the room. In an open floor plan, this provides a cozy seating area. In a small room, it creates the appearance of airiness. Bigger challenge: Getting

the proposed solution to work. Airy Arrangements A floating arrangement is difficult to pull off, since anything other than perfect placement can make furnishings look like “ships cast at sea” or as though someone cleaned the walls and forgot to move the furniture back, says New York designer Scott Salvator. For the average person, and even for pros, a successful outcome “requires a lot of arranging and rearranging,” says designer Dawn Falcone, also of

New York. “You have to set aside time to work with your furniture. Sometimes just pushing something back one inch makes all the difference in the world.” In certain rooms, a floating arrangement simply won’t work, no matter how many rounds of “musical furniture” you undertake. “It’s really an architecture-driven thing. If the room is big and open in all directions, a floating floor plan works great,” Salvator says, though an island of furniture in the middle of the room

Face the sofa toward the room’s focal point, then angle in other pieces to create a balanced conversation area.

‘If the room is big and open in all directions, a floating floor plan works great,’ says designer Scott Salvator. requires at least 3 feet of walking space around the perimeter. To begin experimenting, remove everything from the room except your largest furnishings, such as your sofa and love seat. Identify the room’s focal point, or create one. In a living room, it’s usually the fireplace or television. The focal point is your anchor, Falcone says, and guides the placement of your remaining furniture. Generally, the sofa looks good directly across from the focal point, facing it at a comfortable distance. Other pieces can then be angled toward the focal point or oriented around the sofa to create a balanced arrangement conducive to conversation. Alternately, you can place the sofa and a love seat to form an L, with the arms close together for cohesion. You probably will need to place furnishings with comparable “visual weight” across from the love seat for balance. An area rug can be used to define and unify your arrangement, Falcone says. With your primary pieces in place, you need to figure out how to use the rest of the space. “In a huge room, if everything’s in the middle you need to have other groupings of furniture,” Falcone says. Against one wall, you could

place two chairs with an occasional table between them, for example. In the best-case scenario, these groupings would accommodate other activities, such as reading, Falcone says. Off the Walls A floating floor plan leaves you with blank, gallery-like walls. If smaller furniture groupings aren’t possible, fill in the space with framed photos and artwork, or place a console table against the wall and hang a striking piece of artwork above it, Falcone suggests. For smaller rooms, consider moving furniture off the wall at an angle instead of unmooring it altogether. For example, angle your sofa off the wall slightly and put a table and table lamp behind it in the widest part of the pieshaped space you’ve created. Or keep the sofa parallel to the wall but bring it out far enough to put a rectangular table behind it. One problem with floating floor plans is that there’s no place to plug things in, though in some homes it’s possible to retrofit floor outlets. Make no mistake: “You’ll need table lamps and floor lamps no matter how much natural and overhead lighting you have,” Falcone says. © CTW Features
