  • 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.

    Impulse Detection Leads To Mitigation Of Pressure Events

    Water hammer events can result in service issues for utilities, as the sudden increase in pressure can contribute to pipe fatigue, eventually causing pipe failure—a costly situation for municipalities. By Barry Ceci, founder, president and CEO, Telog Instruments

  • A Smart Water Guide To Tackling The 5 Biggest Water Management Challenges
    A Smart Water Guide To Tackling The 5 Biggest Water Management Challenges

    For years, water utilities have expressed concerns about the five biggest pain points in water management:  leaks, non-revenue water, theft, poor customer service, and water and energy conservation. They know that addressing these pain points will help conserve water for future generations while also saving their customers money, but it isn’t always easy. By Dan Pinney, Director of AMI, Gas and Water, Sensus 

  • 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.

Correlated, Acoustic Leak Detection System: Aclara STAR® ZoneScan

Correlated, Acoustic Leak Detection System: Aclara STAR® ZoneScan

Non-revenue water loss due to underground leaks is a major headache for utilities — and losses often worsen as the infrastructure ages. What’s more, leaks often erupt into major infrastructure failures. Aclara STAR ZoneScan is the industry’s only remotely correlated acoustic leak-detection solution that uses time-synchronized sound recordings to identify leak locations on the main. The sound recordings are made by underground equipment in the field and later correlated at the utility, pinpointing leaks before they become expensive emergencies. The solution’s hands-off operation as well as automated data collection and analysis saves money, time, and resources.

    SCADA Alternatives For Remote Monitoring

    In addition to managing operational efficiency and customer usage, utilities are driven by demanding regulations for improved quality, safety, and security. For remote monitoring applications, data acquisition systems (DAS) can provide an enhanced understanding of network operations through detailed documentation. This white paper presents the advantages of remote DAS over SCADA, including the ability to measure data even when communication channels fail or computers crash. By Barry Ceci
