  • How To Move The Needle Of Energy Consumption
    How To Move The Needle Of Energy Consumption

    Summer is here, and with it rising temperatures and energy costs.  In recent weeks, political unrest in Iraq has caused fuel prices to climb to near record highs, and no relief is in sight. Future-minded water utilities realize any decision made today to help offset future energy consumption is both economically and environmentally wise. With that in mind, utilities across the country are desperately searching for green products and innovations to help them conserve precious resources in the future, and iron pipe is one tool that can help them accomplish this.

  • AMI Codes II-HC High Total Chlorine Residual Monitor
    AMI Codes II-HC High Total Chlorine Residual Monitor

    Some wastewater applications require chlorine residuals greater than can be effectively monitored using DPD due to the oxidation of the Wurster dye to a colorless Imine. Such applications include industrial wastewater processes that inherently have a high chlorine demand thereby requiring a more robust monitoring method.

    In the long list of issues that face the state of California, an aquatic species invasion isn’t likely to be a legislative priority. In the water world, an invasion of any kind means trouble for the industry. The problem isn’t so much about water quality; daily operations and important ecosystems will be affected. Clams roughly the size of a dime called quagga mussels have the potential to multiply and clog water intake structures. While they settle in, quagga mussels feed on important planktons that native organisms require to survive.
