WERF Research Update
WERF Makes Condition Assessment SIMPLE Improving the quality of wastewater service is daunting in the face of the challenges posed by the aging of the networks of pipes and pumping stations — more than 800,000 miles of water pipe and 600,000 miles of wastewater infrastructure with some components more than 100 years old. The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) has improved its resources to assist with much-needed condition assessment and system rehabilitation. The Sustainable Infrastructure Management Program Learning Environment (SIMPLE) online knowledge base provides tools, techniques, and strategies to support asset management practices at all levels of experience.
The Final Frontier: What Is The Future Of Water? By Grant Van Hemert, P.E., Schneider Electric
When it comes to projects and procurement, are water and wastewater utilities living in the past? This article examines the weaknesses of traditional project-oriented procurement and how other agencies, such as NASA, are moving beyond this approach to a more solution-oriented methodology.
Just Add SCADA By Thelma Akwei and Ben Manlongat, Trihedral Engineering Limited
Water and wastewater utilities are under increasing pressure to prevent service disruption, control costs, and provide management and regulators with detailed process information. This requires a modern supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, but many utilities simply cannot afford either the upfront cost or the long-term maintenance typically required. This article describes how a hosted Internet solution can help such utilities quickly acquire advanced SCADA systems that would have been impossible considering the costs of traditional SCADA architecture.
Sanitaire has provided the wastewater treatment industry with innovative and cost-effective treatment technologies for more than 40 years. This tradition continues with the Sanitaire DrumFilter, a tertiary filtration system.
The Classic Wet Well Mounted Pump Station (WWMPS) offers municipalities and industry a fully customized, packaged lift station solution. The compact, above-grade solution arrives ready for installation after being factory-built and tested.
The entrapment of solids in the pockets of instrumentation directly affects the performance of pressure-measuring devices. The new Ashcroft Type 330 Mini-Diaphragm Seal meets this challenge head on with a diaphragm that is flush with the end of the 1" male NPT process connection.
