  • Is 'Going By The Book' Enough For Flood Mitigation?
    Is 'Going By The Book' Enough For Flood Mitigation?

    Living near water requires that we plan for situations when we have too much of it. Throughout history we have dealt with flooding when weather events exceed “normal” parameters.

  • We Have A Challenge
    We Have A Challenge

    A common thread of recent stormwater conferences and industry seminars has been the failure of designed WSUD measures, whether they are detention systems, wetlands and most commonly bioretention systems.

    Things To Consider In Detention Basin Design

    XP Solutions in Brisbane recently presented a webinar on the design of detention basins. In response to the session, the support team were asked a number of questions on some of the other options that are available to engineers and designers of these systems as well as specific requirements that may need to be addressed. The following items apply within the Australian context but are applicable across the world.

    Portland Leading The Way In Sustainable Streets?

    Many of you will know Portland, Oregon as the “City of Roses” or one of bridges and micro-breweries but it was none of these things that got me excited about my first trip to Portland earlier this month.

  • How To Evolve With SCADA
    How To Evolve With SCADA

    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?

  • Hydro-Guard® Improves Water Quality And Saves Man-Hours For Central Texas Vacation Community
    Hydro-Guard® Improves Water Quality And Saves Man-Hours For Central Texas Vacation Community

    The user population of a Central Texas resort system does not reach its peak until summer and the resultant levels of peak and low usage vary widely. This fluctuation impacts levels of disinfectant residual and, consequently, water quality — especially at the end of the line. Manual flushing of the utility's hydrants to maintain water quality has resulted in excessive time and labor as workers must access the outlying areas.

    Regardless of how the many wastewater treatment plants across North America and the world are configured, their missions are the same. At the core of their operations, these facilities are charged with maximizing the efficiency of managing their wastewater and water resources.

  • Installing Hydro-Guard® Automatic Flushing Saves Rural Texas Town $8,000 A Year
    Installing Hydro-Guard® Automatic Flushing Saves Rural Texas Town $8,000 A Year

    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.
