    Aging Infrastructure Creates Challenges For Utilities And Their Customers

    It’s no great secret that a sound infrastructure plays a critical role in the health of our economy and our individual health. A first-class infrastructure — not just well-maintained, but modernized and innovative — is the hallmark of a first-class nation. In the United States, up until relatively recently, building the best roads, bridges, railroads and water supply systems was a priority for that very reason. The literal foundation of America was once among the strongest in the world. By Myles Meehan, Senior Vice President, Public Relations, HomeServe USA

    Using Granular Activated Carbon To Meet DBP Regulations

    The Roche Harbor Water Treatment Plant is located on the northwest side of San Juan Island in San Juan County, Washington state. Although a significant part of the land in the county is privately owned, the watersheds there provide a public benefit for both residents and visitors.  San Juan Island’s economy is tourist-driven; the island was voted #2 on the New York Times list of “41 Places to go in 2011.” Its marina has been a top boating destination for more than fifty years. Incorporated in 1886, the community has seen slow but steady population growth in recent decades. Roche Harbor Water System Inc. has been in operation since 1968 when PVC piping replaced the island’s existing wooden pipe system.
