09.28.21 -- How To Find A More Affordable Migration Path To Net Zero Leakage

Drinking Water And Wastewater Infrastructure Act Of 2021: The Breakdown For Metered Technology

In May of 2021, the Senate passed the Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act of 2021 (DWWI Act). They have allocated $250 million in grant money, broken down into $50 million segments each year starting in 2022 and ending in 2026. Due to this bipartisan legislation, small public water systems should consider taking advantage of this unique funding opportunity. Keep reading to see if you may qualify.

Finding A More Affordable Migration Path To Net Zero Leakage

Whether decision-makers consider it ultimately attainable or not, there is something positive to be said about striving toward ‘net zero leakage’ in water distribution systems saddled with high non-revenue-water (NRW) losses. The key is taking affordable steps toward identifying and mitigating the most egregious water loss locations in a distribution system, based on readily accessible data.

Electromagnetic Flow Meters, Flow Straighteners, And Vanes: Compatible Or Not?

Those familiar with propeller flow meters are usually familiar with their common counterparts, flow straighteners, and vanes. Implemented to reduce swirl in shorter straight-run applications, straighteners are a complementary instrument for agriculture, irrigation, and municipal flow measurement applications.

Taking An Affordable Approach To Smart Water And IoT Technology

Every water system needs data to make decisions about day-to-day operations and long-term strategic planning. Unfortunately — whether due to cost or practical limitations — not every one of them has access to all the data they would like to make the most productive decisions. Here are several ways that even smaller utilities can implement affordable technologies to improve visibility into what’s happening in key areas of their systems.
