ABOUT XYLEM

Xylem is a leading water technology company committed to "solving water" by creating innovative and smart technology solutions to meet the world's water, wastewater and energy needs.

​In a world of ever-growing challenges, Xylem delivers innovative water technology solutions throughout the cycle of water.

Our technological strength across the life cycle of water is second-to-none. From collection and distribution to reuse and return to nature, our highly efficient water technologies, industrial pumps and application solutions not only use less energy and reduce life-cycle costs, but also promote sustainability.

SOLUTIONS

Managing sewer and stormwater overflows in the face of increasing intensity and frequency of wet weather events is a serious challenge for many utilities. Doing so affordably is even harder. BLU-X, Xylem’s innovative Intelligent Urban Watershed platform, helps utilities improve sewer system performance and capacity utilization, meeting environmental goals while saving substantially on operating and maintenance costs.

Xylem has developed an industry-aligned cybersecurity program designed to protect your critical water and wastewater system assets and maintain compliance.

Bench- and pilot-scale testing for optimized water and wastewater treatment solutions. Before you invest in the installation of treatment technology to solve a challenge, Xylem’s Treatability Testing Services help you select and optimize the best solution for your project. Xylem’s bench- and pilot-scale testing capabilities can be used at the earliest stages of the project to quickly and cost effectively determine the optimal technology and design criteria—resulting in a reliable and economically sustainable treatment system that meets performance objectives.

Flooding is one of the most universal — and destructive — challenges facing cities around the world. World Bank research suggests that floods are the most frequent of all natural disasters and that the number of flood events is rising rapidly. In 2010 alone, 178 million people were affected by floods, with losses exceeding $40 billion.

Recent years have spawned a large number of unpredictable and sometimes devastating natural disasters around the world. Typhoons in the Philippines and China, wildfires in Australia and Portugal, earthquakes in Pakistan, China and Chile, floods in Canada, Central Europe, India, and Mexico and droughts in Brazil, China, and the U.S. contributed to losses of $45 billion in 2013, all on the heels of $72 billion in losses in 2012.

In 2000, 150 million people lived in cities facing perennial water shortages, where available supply per person is less than 100 liters per day.

Xylem breaks down resilience-building strategies into four categories of actions: ensuring water security, strengthening critical infrastructure, driving response and recovery, and engaging community stakeholders. These actions, based upon the needs and current trends of the water sector, combine to offer a holistic solution that considers the nuanced needs of urban areas, which can vary based on geography, population size, or governmental structure, among other metrics.

For those entrusted with the responsibility of supplying vital water and wastewater services to their communities, it is both the worst and the best of times.
