Managing a water treatment facility that houses hundreds of assets can get downright complex and time-consuming, to say the least. Fortunately, modern technology makes it much easier to improve the efficiency of maintenance operations while reducing downtimes.
A relatively new solution has emerged for drinking water infrastructure with some communities investing in its promise. Is it the answer to pipeline problems?
KC Water transforms otherwise ‘useless’ zeros and ones — i.e., raw data — into invaluable intelligence for improved utility operations.
The federal Drinking Water State Revolving Fund was designed to help communities pay for infrastructure projects and meet safety regulations. But can it be applied for the greatest threat to drinking water of our time?
The need for using condition assessment as part of an overall asset management program has been documented over the past two decades, but the value of this work for the cost has eluded many utilities.
The issue of water supply is high on the agenda of the South African government.
Clarifiers are an important component of the wastewater treatment process. However, between corrosion, maintenance, and changes in flow, it can be difficult to keep a clarifier operating at peak performance. In addition, changes in effluent regulations may require upgrades to meet new, more stringent requirements.
Choosing a technology provider to supply a solution for water or wastewater treatment is no small task. Frankly, there’s a lot at stake, from large sums of money to the efficacy of an entire operation hinging on the right decision. But with so many options out there, what qualities do you need to look for to guarantee you’re making the right choice? To get an answer, Water Online spoke with Fred Siino from KLa Systems.
Laboratory technicians are continually pressured to perform more analyses with greater accuracy and better data management. Quality assurance and control are paramount, and customers need results quickly.
Water and wastewater systems must meet stringent regulatory requirements. Accurate, precise, and timely laboratory testing is key to meeting regulations. As permit limits approach — or even go beyond — method detection limits, the ability to customize analyses and train technicians in new techniques is more important than ever.
New Jersey is losing around 130 million gallons of treated drinking water per day, according to a new study that attempts to shed light on the “largely hidden” problem of water loss in the Garden State.
A water main break in a Texas city recently flooded an entire neighborhood, displacing families and sending a stream through homes and lawns.
Water utilities hoping to decrease the threat of lead contamination are part of a new collaboration that aims to get lead pipes replaced.
A water utility in central Pennsylvania is taking steps to protect its customers from lead.
A major reservoir in California is going offline until March, forcing the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) to change water sources.
Six sewage treatment plants across the Navajo Nation in Arizona have been violating Clean Water Act regulations for years, according to a new agreement between federal and tribal regulators and the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA).
Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, recently announced that the Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD) in California has chosen industry-leading InfoMaster Suite software to optimize the management of its water and wastewater critical assets.
Officials from East Chicago, IN, say high lead levels in the city’s water system are linked to another pressing problem: the need to upgrade infrastructure.
Chemline fast-set spray polyurea coatings protect concrete and precast concrete by preventing moisture migration from the surface into the substrate, where it can cause significant corrosion to the internal rebar and impact structural integrity.
Using GE’s Water & Process Technologies’ asset performance management solution, the Region of Peel, Ontario, Canada, optimized the timing of its system upgrade with new membranes to ensure continued drinking water safety and reliability for its residents.
