STORMWATER MANAGEMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS
Managed by the private, non-profit South Jasper Water Supply, Buna, Texas’ water system contains 91 miles of un-looped distribution pipe with historical water losses of up to 30%. A small operations team is responsible for monitoring two water plants, reading 700 meters, repairing leaks, and flushing water to control the water quality. In an effort to spend less time manually flushing hydrants and focus more time on repairing leaks to reduce non-revenue water loss, South Jasper Water Supply purchased and installed two (2) Hydro-Guard® HG-1 Basic/S Flushing Systems.
Hydro-Guard® Improves Water Quality And Saves Man-Hours For Central Texas Vacation Community
The user population of the Horseshoe Bay Water Distribution System does not reach its peak until summer and the resultant levels of peak and low usage vary widely.
Using Technology And Best Business Practices To Make The Best Use Of Resources And Save Public Dollars
Creating long-term efficiencies and sustainability is a huge focus of today’s government sector. Every day the charge of Public Works’ leaders is to do more, with less. Further, technology, if used correctly, can be an effective tool for organizing work and cutting costs.
Ultrafiltration Stormwater Recovery System At Cincinnati Zoo Reaches Optimal Performance
The Cincinnati Zoo uses an ultrafiltration system (UF) to treat stormwater. The reclaimed water is collected from 14 acres of the park, including parking lots, animal exhibit yards, rooftop drains, and walking path storm drains

Constructing A Winding Box Culvert Channel In A Steep, Rocky Canyon
Special precast box culverts were used for one of the most significant segments of the $25.8 million emergency water restoration project, designated by the NRCS, known as the Cache Water Restoration Project (CWRP). The CWRP project involved the reconstruction and improvement of approximately six miles of mostly open, unlined channels that make up the Logan and Northern, as well as the Hyde Park and Smithfield canals. The project incorporated new precast pipeline, box culverts, a section of pressurized pipe, metering systems, turn-outs, head gates, and improved maintenance access.
Michigan Utility’s New Pumps Underscore Advancements In Wastewater Handling
Ypsilanti’s pumps, originally put into service in 1982, became priority candidates for replacement after operating ten years beyond their expected 20 year service life. The Ypsilanti Community Utilities Authority (YCUA), included the project in the utility’s Master Plan.
Submersible Pumps Eliminate Flood Damage Concerns At LaGuardia Airport
During Hurricane Sandy, La Guardia Airport’s five stormwater pump stations lost power, resulting in flooding of an estimated 100 million gallons of water. The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey quickly moved up its planned renovations and installed nine axial flow pumps capable of moving large volumes of water at low heads. The propeller-type pumps have motors that are invulnerable to submersion during high-water incidents, improving the airport’s stormwater control, flexibility, and operational efficiency.
Flood Improvement And LID Modeling Using XP‐SWMM
Over the years, a number of severe storms have impacted the Harris Gully watershed, including Tropical Storm Allison, which resulted in $5 billion in damages in 2001. Inundation was especially severe at the downstream portions of Harris Gully, where Rice University and the Texas Medical Center are located. A1D/2D hydraulic model (XPSWMM) was instrumental in simulating and evaluating the effects of a proposed drainage alternative.
