• Why Strategic Choices — And Water — Could Make People More Energy-Efficient
    Why Strategic Choices — And Water — Could Make People More Energy-Efficient

    At my household, a new year means a new energy and water-use baseline. By that I mean, every month, I look at how much electricity and water I used in comparison to the same month the previous year — so I can try to be as efficient as possible. But I work in the energy field, and I know that’s not a typical New Year’s tradition. Most people don’t examine the trends of their energy-use or spend much time thinking about how to reduce it.

  • A Visual Guide To Troubleshooting Your Valves
    A Visual Guide To Troubleshooting Your Valves

    Water management professionals know all too well that problems arise — usually sometime after 2 a.m., or just as you’re walking out the door for a holiday weekend. No matter how well-prepared you are, or how sophisticated your system, sometimes you’re going to run into challenges. It’s simply the nature of the industry. When you experience an issue with your valves (especially when they’re failing to open or close as expected) your first instinct is to call the factory for support. While some cases may require factory assistance, this isn’t always the most efficient solution.

    A Bridge To Innovation: Water Technology Clusters

    Despite the increased attention toward innovation, many end users are faced with the reality of declining revenues against growing infrastructure costs and the prioritization of current and longer-term needs, all while managing limited resources for day-to-day operational requirements. Generally, however, the water industry recognizes that current and future challenges cannot be met absent of innovation.
