Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Article: A Field Testing Must Have Device
    7/11/2010
    To take control of our water quality, we first need to know what's in our water. Having portable testing devices to measure important water quality parameters in the field empowers water treatment professionals with improved water quality understanding, enabling them to take more immediate and effective action.

  2. City of Troy Improves Customer Relationships And Billing Accuracy With AMI Solution
    3/28/2018

    Located just south of Montgomery, Alabama, the City of Troy is a unique mix of southern small-town charm and big-city amenities. Read the full case study to learn how the City leveraged Sensus’ Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution to gather more data and monitor for issues likes leaks or pipe breaks

  3. Engineering For Safe Chlorine Disinfection
    6/6/2011

    For more than 75 years chlorine has been effectively used to disinfect drinking water, eliminating dangerous bacteria and toxic compounds. Water supply engineers and treatment facility operators are used to necessary risks and problems associated with chlorine disinfection in order to deliver safe water. By Harland R. Pond, Product Manager; Grundfos

  4. An FYI On AMI ROI
    2/2/2018

    Any water utility that has to impose restrictions due to water scarcity appreciates the value of conservation. On the other hand, there are utilities that — knowingly or unknowingly — permit as much as 20 to 40 percent of their treated water to trickle away without collecting a cent for it. If you have experienced either extreme, but are not already using advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), what’s holding you back? Before dismissing AMI as being too costly, too technical, or too difficult to implement, consider the following cost-benefit opportunities.

  5. Smart Antenna Technology Enhances AMI Network Reliability
    3/7/2016

    Advancements targeting the challenges related to a flooded meter pit environ­ment have occurred slowly over the years, with limited success.

  6. Transient And Surge Related Pipe Bursts, Water Loss And Damage Prevention
    2/13/2013

    Pipe bursts as a result of transients and surges within a piping network are very common problems throughout the world. Not only are the maintenance costs of these repairs extremely expensive, but when you add in possible litigation for third party damages, combined with the potentially significant value (cost) of the lost water, you can quickly realize the significance of what may appear simply as “another pipe burst”. By Brad Clarke, Singer Valve Inc.

  7. Stinkin' Drinkin' Water No More: Oxidation/Filtration Removes Hydrogen Sulfide
    4/15/2013

    AdEdge Water Technologies, LLC was contacted by Aqua Utilities Florida to provide a hydrogen sulfide removal system for the Lake Josephine community, located in Highlands County, FL. The treatment goal for the system was to reduce the levels of hydrogen sulfide to the nondetectable odor threshold of <0.05 mg/l.

  8. Concrete Manufacturing Operation Meets Permit Requirements With PH Control System
    1/30/2014

    In order to meet its discharge permit limits, a ready-mix concrete manufacturing operation needed to neutralize its high pH process water. Staff installed a control system that automatically detects a rise in pH and treats the water with a modular in-line carbon dioxide feed system. The operation can now recycle treated water for rinsing trucks, supply recycled water into the concrete batching operation, and safely discharge the water into the environment.

  9. The Next Frontier: Automating By Water Quality
    9/19/2011
    Since the early 1970s, water and wastewater plants have been automating processes in order to achieve a more stable effluent and to decrease costs. By Bob Dabkowski, Hach Company
  10. Brewery Reuses Water For Factory Wash-Down
    11/11/2013

    Looking to reduce its water footprint, Shepherd Neame Brewery invested in a complete membrane bioreactor (MBR) wastewater recovery and re-use plant. Learn how the new plant's aeration system has helped to reduce the brewery's water-to-beer ratio to an industry-leading value of 3:1.
