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.
To achieve its plan to double the Company’s reach, Evoqua is looking to add to its team and ensure it continues to have the best talent in the industry.
When the pressure builds up in the underground systems that distribute water, it doesn’t take a creative mind to imagine what could happen next.

If wastewater treatment plant operators have nightmares, it’s a good bet that many of them have to do with sewage overflows. Few events are as catastrophic for a wastewater facility as a surge of water it can’t process being churned out into the public sphere, in violation of environmental regulations, and to the detriment of public health.
Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are the digital pulse of water and wastewater treatment plants. Serving as the information hub, SCADA makes the most of the day’s cutting-edge technology and in turn uses it to make the most of the plant’s operations. But how to keep up with a system that evolves as quickly as the greatest minds in the field will allow?

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) will help promote environmental stewardship, raise awareness about the value of water, and support the development of future water leaders through a series of community and student-focused events at WEFTEC 2016—WEF’s 89th annual technical exhibition and conference—scheduled for Sept. 24-28 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center (NOMCC).
Emerging water quality issues, stringent regulatory requirements, and shrinking resources require an increasingly diverse set of skills from today’s utility managers.
Manufacturing plants, commercial buildings and municipalities all rely on pumping systems for daily operations. In the manufacturing sector alone, pumps represent 27% of electricity used by industrial systems.
