    Working With Customers To Reduce Water Usage During California Drought

    In 2015, California entered the fourth year of a severe drought, the driest it has been since record keeping began in the late 1800s. This historic long-term drought is a problem for every American, regardless of where they live, because it has implications for the economy, society and environment.

  • United Utilities Improves Customer Satisfaction While Reducing Costs

Gorman-Rupp’s 6500 Series Standard Horizontal End Suction Centrifugal Pumps Gorman-Rupp’s 6500 Series Standard Horizontal End Suction Centrifugal Pumps

6500 Series end suction centrifugal pumps are based on the proven technology of Gorman-Rupp's Prime Aire and Prime Aire Plus priming-assisted pump models. The 6500 Series was designed to extend Gorman-Rupp's end suction centrifugal pump offering and to better serve applications where a suction lift is not required. A double volute mitigates shaft breakage and extends the life of the mechanical seals, wear rings and bearings, all while maintaining hydraulic efficiency, while a side access port allows for easy access to pump interior for inspection and clean out while the pusher bolt capability assists in the removal of the suction flange.

LuminUltra Wastewater (QG21W™) LuminUltra Wastewater (QG21W™)

LuminUltra Wastewater (QG21W) is the key to a new level of efficiency in biological wastewater treatment plant operation! QG21W provides the ability to measure the size of the living biomass population (Cellular ATP, cATP), its relative health (Biomass Stress Index, BSI), and suspended solids activity (Active Biomass Ratio, ABR) at any point in the process. Use this information to manage return sludge pumping rates, air and nutrient dosages, and to proactively identify and eliminate toxicity.

STAR® Network For Gas Utilities STAR® Network For Gas Utilities

The STAR Network for gas utilities offers two-way communications that go beyond AMR by securely and accurately reading gas meters electronically – without meter readers, drive-by vans, or handhelds.

LATEST INSIGHTS ON CONSUMER OUTREACH

  • Bringing The Water Loss Fight Home During ‘Fix A Leak Week’

    The U.S. EPA estimates that more than one trillion gallons of water are lost through household leaks every year. It introduced “Fix a Leak Week” to bring that number down.

  • The Bible On Effective Utility Management

    The U.S. EPA and multiple water groups recently gathered during Water Week 2016 in Washington, D.C. to announce updates to an essential guide for effective utility management (EUM). If utilities aren't already familiar with this document, they need to be. 

  • Raising Water Rates: What Message Works Best?

    I sympathize with water and wastewater utilities. Tasked with more responsibility than ever, too often they aren’t supported with the necessary financial resources. To draw a baseball analogy, apropos for this time of year, it's like trying to win the World Series with minimal payroll (capital improvement funds) and old, broken-down players (infrastructure).

  • Surprising Facts From The 'Value Of Water' Poll

    You may have seen the recent poll results announced by the Value of Water Coalition indicating near universal agreement (95 percent) on the need for reliable water systems, along with the somewhat surprising fact that a majority (60 percent) would agree to higher water bills to support them. The real surprise, however, is who is willing to pay the most.

  • Convincing The Public Of Potable Reuse

    While there is evidence to indicate that the public is coming around on recycled water, the “toilet-to-tap” moniker has persisted. To bring this call to action to water agencies along with actionable steps for them to pursue, the WateReuse Association, a nonprofit trade group, hosted a potable reuse communications webcast.
