  • Expert Advice On The Lead-Free Law And Compliance
    Expert Advice On The Lead-Free Law And Compliance

    The national lead-free law that went into effect in January 2014 arrived with a certain amount of confusion tied to it. What does “lead free” really mean? What constitutes a pipe, pipe fitting, plumbing fitting, or fixture? How are lead-free products identified? How is the law enforced?

  • Are You Ready For 'Lead Free' 2014?
    Are You Ready For 'Lead Free' 2014?

    The clock is ticking, counting down to the new “lead free” mandate, effective Jan. 4, 2014, which will be considerably stricter than the current federal requirement. Under the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, signed Jan. 4, 2011, “lead free” will be redefined as “not more than a weighted average of 0.25% lead when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, and fixtures.”

  • Feeling The Pressure To Reduce Leakage?
    Feeling The Pressure To Reduce Leakage?

    Water is a resource that is often taken for granted. As we see the effects of climate change and population growth, the challenges we will face regarding water supply and availability will only increase. Examples of this are beginning to surface extensively in many areas of the world. In Adelaide, Australia, the Murray River has long supplied Adelaide with its source of water however the Murray River has seen extensive overuse for potable, agricultural and industrial use and now combined with changing weather patterns, Adelaide is in trouble.

    Water Cybersecurity: Alarming, Autodialers, And The Resistance To Change

    It is 2:00 AM on Saturday morning. It is a cold, frigid night. The booster station maintaining water pressure within the distribution system has unexpectedly shut down. The autodialer checks for a dial tone, then calls the first standby operator and plays the prerecorded message, “Booster Station Shutdown Alarm” it repeats, “Booster Station Shutdown Alarm,” “Press 1 on your touch-tone phone to acknowledge this recording.” The operator presses the 1 key on his phone. A potential outage is likely. Customers will be disrupted. The operator has no idea what has happened, or the appropriate tools to bring to the solution.

    Make Your SCADA Feel Young Again

    When the Village of Romeoville underwent a major upgrade to their SCADA system, they also decided to move to the latest version of the monitoring & control software that they had used successfully for many years. This version included features designed specifically for the water/wastewater industry. In this article, a former Head of the Water Department (*) explains why the utility continues to push for the latest HMI version and how this helps them overcome many of the issues related to maintaining a long-running SCADA system.

    Myths And Truths About The Waters Of The U.S. Rule

    Last week the House of Representatives approved a bill to block the proposed “Waters of the United States” rule, which would expand the U.S. EPA’s authority to include many streams and wetlands that currently go unregulated under the Clean Water Act. Has the EPA gone too far, or are they just doing what is necessary to protect and enhance water quality?
