  • AMR System Delivers Outstanding Efficiency While Improving Water Conservation In Pacific Northwest
    AMR System Delivers Outstanding Efficiency While Improving Water Conservation In Pacific Northwest

    Public Utility District No. 1 of Skagit County (Skagit PUD) in Washington state was at a crossroads, facing a number of challenges related to its meter reading system. Because the utility was using a touch-read/visual-read system, it was highly dependent on its water meter readers’ acquired route knowledge. Two of the PUD’s three meter readers were planning to retire soon, and it would take at least a year to hire and train new employees to fill their experienced shoes. At the same time, the community was growing at a steady pace, and a significant number of its existing meters were reaching the end of their useful lifecycle.

    Secure Network Information Readily Available To Enterprise Users

    Portland Water Bureau, more than 100 years old, is a public water utility located in Portland, Oregon. It is responsible for the supply, treatment, and delivery of water to about 935,000 consumers in parts of Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties in Oregon — nearly one-fourth of the population of the state. This service involves approximately 35 billion gallons of water annually. In 2011-12, more than 566,000 of those consumers were retail customers served directly by the utility. Another 368,000 consumers are served by the utility’s wholesale customers, including suburbs of Portland, water districts, and private water companies.

  • 5 Quick Tips On Mechanical Aeration
    5 Quick Tips On Mechanical Aeration

    Are you not getting the aeration performance you expect? Perhaps you’re not even aware that your system is lagging. In this age of doing more with less — practically a mandate considering high water-quality demands coupled with tight municipal budgets — operational optimization is essential. Since mechanical aeration is a cornerstone of successful wastewater treatment, it’s a natural place to focus your optimization and troubleshooting efforts.

Remote Pressure Monitoring System

Remote Pressure Monitoring System

Several years ago, Mueller began a journey to develop a user friendly and co st-effective technology to continuously and remotely monitor pressure at any point within a potable water distribution system. The technology involves threading a sensor onto a corporation valve to transmit pressure readings. The pressure sensor, typically installed one per District Metering Area (DMA), reports at userdefined intervals via cellular service and a Mueller-hosted secure web server. Beginning with pressure monitoring, Mueller has created a communications backbone that utilities can integrate into its monitoring systems or use as a stand-alone monitoring platform.

  • Increase Revenue With New Commercial Metering Technology
    Increase Revenue With New Commercial Metering Technology

    Revenue for water utilities is circling the drain. Most commercial water meters can stand up to the high water flow of commercial water customers, but these same meters often have a hard time measuring low water flows and retaining accurate meter reads over time and continuous flow conditions. Grocery stores, for example, do not pay for the scant amount of water used for produce misters because it passes through many commercial water meters without detection. These low flows add up to big dollars and are forcing water utilities to take a hard look at the accuracy of their meter fleet.

  • Hydrogen Sulfide Removal From Water Using AquaSorb® CX-MCA
    Hydrogen Sulfide Removal From Water Using AquaSorb® CX-MCA

    The “rotten egg” odor in some water supplies is caused by sulfide in water. Sulfide can be treated using oxidation techniques, the goal being to convert the sulfide to high oxidation state species such as sulfate to eliminate the taste and odor concerns. Traditional oxidation techniques such as ozone and chlorine can be used, but can be expensive due to the equipment required to add and monitor the oxidant, and can lead to by-products such as trihalomethanes (THMs), which are regulated in drinking water supplies.

  • The Basics: Monitoring Deionized Water
    The Basics: Monitoring Deionized Water

    Years ago, high purity water was used only in limited applications. Today, deionized (Dl) water has become an essential ingredient in hundreds of applications including: medical, laboratory, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, electronics manufacturing, food processing, plating, countless industrial processes, and even the final rinse at the local car wash.
