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. The resulting bursts can mean extensive repairs to the pipes, significant restoration to damaged property, and the prospect of lost water revenue pouring out of the system.
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.
The Orange County Water District’s Groundwater Replenishment System (GWRS) Initial Expansion project, a Black & Veatch-designed alternative water supply system that bolsters water security for a large portion of Southern California, has been chosen to receive the prestigious Water Environment Federation (WEF) Project Excellence Award.
At a time when sea-level rise is flooding cities in the U.S. Southeast, harmful algae blooms are threatening seashore communities, and climate change is affecting fisheries just offshore, how do we coexist with our coastlines?
The U.S. EPA has proposed a rule that could allow the public to temporarily drink water containing radioactive contamination in the case of a nuclear emergency and it isn’t sitting well with some.

Water policy and research priorities were the focus in a September 7 meeting of water industry leaders with U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.
This past July was the hottest single month in Earth’s recorded history, but warming isn’t the only danger climate change holds in store. Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in the simultaneous occurrence of extremely cold winter days in the Eastern United States and extremely warm winter days in the West, according to a Stanford-led study published in Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres.
