DRINKING WATER DISTRIBUTION
Every water system typically consists of piping networks that distribute water from a source or storage reservoir to the end users. This usually will require some form of a valve that will have to be controlled.

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.
Borough Of Monaca Adds Another Brick In Its Road To Sustainability
One of the key opportunities for sustainability improvements is located in the Borough’s water system. With a leak-prone, aging system, the Borough knew it needed an upgrade to new, clean technology that would help increase productivity, improve billing accuracy and save money.
South Mesa Water Co. Improves Customer Service, Conservation And Operational Efficiency With Hot Rod™ From Mueller Systems
Operational efficiency and conservation are increasing in focus among water utilities across the United States, however, they are especially important to Calimesa, Calif.-based South Mesa Water Company.
Wingo Water & Sewer Upgrades To ORION® Fixed Network (SE) System From Badger Meter
Located in rural Kentucky, the small town of Wingo may seem like an unlikely candidate to become the first city in the state to employ a complete Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. However, when it came time to upgrade its meter reading system, the city wanted a comprehensive water utility solution and chose the ORION Fixed Network (SE) system from Badger Meter.
STAR Network System Stands Up To Hurricane Sandy
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is the largest public water utility in North America, serving more than 800,000 customers and nine million residents.
Three Steps For Reducing Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO) In Pumping Systems
Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.
New 23-Mile San Antonio Water Pipeline Wins Industry Award
A water pipeline extension recently completed for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) is the largest high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe project of its type ever done in North America according to the Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI). The $149 million, Regional Carrizo Project undertaken to provide water to 60,000 homes by late 2013, was named Project of the Year for PPI's Municipal and Industrial Division. PPI is the major trade association representing all segments of the plastic pipe industry.
Leading The Conversation On Conservation With The E-Coder)® R900i™
The spring 2013 edition of NeptuneNOW documented the success of Indio, California’s Indio Water Authority (IWA) as it has reduced costs and cut meter reading time using Neptune’s R900® System, featuring the integrated, wireless E-Coder®)R900i™ encoder/RF MIU.
Finding Extra Time – And Money, And Water – With Neptune’s R450™ System
The county seat of Shelby County, Sidney, Ohio straddles the Miami River Valley 40 miles north of Dayton and 85 miles west of Columbus. Named after Sir Philip Sidney, poet and member of British Parliament, the City is home to a population of a little over 21,000.
Article: Water Utilities Slow To Embrace Smart Meter Technologies Water utilities appear to be under water when it comes to conservation efforts and adopting new technologies to help customers monitor water usage. Although water is viewed as a precious resource around the globe, little is being done to save water in North America.
DRINKING WATER DISTRIBUTION APPLICATION NOTES
Hydrant Pressure Monitoring Application Note
One of the most popular uses for the Telog Hydrant Pressure Recorders (HPRs) is to monitor and analyze customer pressure complaints. The HPR is ideally suited for this application because it is rugged, highly portable, and can give a complete, time stamped picture of the pressure differential between the customer’s water pressure and the water pressure being delivered by the utility.
Pipe Repair On A Budget
A new pipe-repair solution promises to save time and money, while also being sustainable, long-lasting, fully scalable, and safe for workers.
Leak Detection Using Conductivity
Virtually all industries from food and beverage to chemical processing use heat exchangers, condensers,or jacketed vessels. Leakage of the process into the cooling water represents a loss of product and can be a source of fouling or corrosion in the cooling water system.
How To Read An Encoder
The HR-E LCD encoder has a 9-digit Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to show consumption, flow and alarm information. The display automatically toggles between 9-digit and 6-digit consumption, rate of flow and meter model.
Water Distribution System Wireless Monitoring Application Note
Providing water distribution monitoring solutions since 1987, Telog continues to offer the industry’s leading remote data acquisition system including the most comprehensive family of battery powered, environmentally rugged wireless monitors available from any single supplier.
Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note
Pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are used throughout water distribution systems to reduce pipeline pressure to a predetermined set point. This decreases water loss and prevents pipe breaks.

A Smart Water Guide To Tackling The 5 Biggest Water Management Challenges
For years, water utilities have expressed concerns about the five biggest pain points in water management: leaks, non-revenue water, theft, poor customer service, and water and energy conservation. They know that addressing these pain points will help conserve water for future generations while also saving their customers money, but it isn’t always easy.
