  • 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.

    Mueller Systems: Davie County Public Utilities Improves Customer Service And Operational Efficiency With Hot Rod™ From Mueller Systems

    The manual bi-monthly collection of readings from each meter was no small challenge—or expense—for Davie County Public Utilities. Oftentimes, meters in its water system were separated by a half-mile or more, and covering the routes could take a driver and a meter reader as many as 50 days.

  • Known For “Healing Waters,” Pagosa Springs Restores Its Potable Water System With Help From SolarBee® Mixers
    Known For “Healing Waters,” Pagosa Springs Restores Its Potable Water System With Help From SolarBee® Mixers

    Located in the high desert plateau of southwestern Colorado, Pagosa Springs is famous for its geothermal hot springs, which draw visitors worldwide to soak in the mineral-rich water. The Utes called the sulfur springs “Pah-gosah,” meaning “healing waters.” You might say the town’s potable water system is healed now as well.

  • Straining To Make Diaphragm Operated Automatic Control Valves Effective
    Straining To Make Diaphragm Operated Automatic Control Valves Effective

    Diaphragm Operated Automatic Control Valves (ACVs) require reasonably clean water to function effectively and reliably.  Having a strainer upstream of the actual ACV is very important, but also having a smaller strainer located at the inlet of the pilot system on the ACV is also well advised.

    East Bay MUD Uses Custom Valve, Reduces Water Pressure And Gains Surge Protection

    As an engineer, your day-to-day responsibilities often include staying up to date on best-in-class applications and specifications. But whether you’re charged with designing a water treatment facility or pump station, or simply supervising an existing system, the equipment you select must be vetted. This is generally a challenge for engineers because many companies are vying to have their products deemed as the best solution, yet visibility into those claims is often limited.
