Why The Future Of Smart Meters Is Now
A Q&A With Badger Meter

The utility of the future will become an integral part of “smart cities.” These forward-thinking cities and utilities will have a complete sense of operations and millions of points of data streaming in at all times, allowing them to operate more efficiently and effectively. One component of the advanced water utility is already in the hands of many: smart meters.

On The Job In 72 Hours Following Utility’s Massive Water Main Break
By AMERICAN - American Cast Iron Pipe Company

On the morning of December 12, 2017, about 30 homes in the Shelby Park neighborhood of Lousiville, KY, were without water, and others were experiencing low water pressure after a massive water main break at the intersection of Clay and Oak streets. More than 20 million gallons of water flooded the neighborhood, covering a three-block area.

Is There A Correlation Between ATP And Other Traditional Microbiological Methods?
By Dave Tracey, LuminUltra

Perhaps the most common question that we’re asked is how our ATP tests correlate with traditional microbiological methods. Unsurprisingly, when people are used to getting their information in a certain way, they naturally want to know how a new method will stack up against it. However, the mechanisms of culture-based techniques and ATP analyses are completely different and, in many ways, so are the results they produce.

Why We Should Use Naturally Occurring Microbes To Save Our Waterways
By Ralph Elliott

The most common technologies utilized in the treatment of natural bodies of water that become polluted, or begin to undergo eutrophication, involve primarily some form of physical or chemical treatment such as chemical oxidizers, flocculants, activated carbon and zeolites, and/or mechanical treatments such as dredging. The primary drawback to chemical treatments is that the treatments are based on stoichiometry or molecule to molecule interactions. As a result, they get very expensive when treating large volumes of water.
