    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling was applied to a circular water storage reservoir, proving invaluable for understanding hydraulic characteristics, developing a plan for mixing efficiency, and maintaining water quality.

  2. Raging Waters: AWWA’s Fight For The Future
    5/14/2018

    AWWA’s 2018-19 president, David Rager, talks about personal priorities for his tenure and the long-range challenges the industry and his organization must strive to overcome.

  3. How Sludge-To-Energy Technology Is Boosting Water Resilience And Slashing Emissions For Cities
    5/14/2018

    Growing cities are generating higher volumes of wastewater and putting a strain on clean water supplies, calling for solutions that extract value from “waste” and ensure the sustainability of resources — with the added bonus, or imperative, of protecting the environment.

  4. Overcoming Smart Meter Fears: The Value Of Focusing Communication On AMI Benefits
    5/14/2018

    The idea that ratepayers are afraid of what advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) may bring into their homes has made water utilities wary of implementing the technology. But are the fears justified? A new survey investigates the phenomenon and lights a path forward.

  5. Assessing The Effectiveness Of Leak-Seeking Satellites

    Pipeline maintenance and non-revenue water reduction get a boost from far-out resources.

  6. Building Resilient Drinking Water Treatment Operations For A Sustainable Water Future
    5/14/2018

    It's spring and the algae are in bloom, but harmful algal blooms are far from the only threats to drinking water. Fortunately, there are advanced treatment technologies to handle some of the most persistent contaminants today, including algal toxins, Cryptosporidium, and 1,4-dioxane.

  7. Predicting Climate Change Impacts On Reservoirs And Water Supply
    5/10/2018

    Climate change is a growing concern, especially the uncertainty of how it will impact the environment. Climate conditions and temperatures vary by region and the effects of climate change will not be uniform.

    5/9/2018

    A Q&A with Gary Wong, chairman of the SWAN North American Alliance

  9. Don’t Want A Solar Panel On Your Roof? How About One Floating On The Lake Behind Your Home?
    5/7/2018

    Who would have thought that a reservoir of water could play a role in producing energy?  Not many people would…but it’s happening elsewhere and it could soon be trending in America.

  10. Drop By Drop, Better Management Makes Dents In China’s Water Stress
    4/30/2018

    With more than one-third of its land area facing high or extremely high water stress, China is working hard to match growing demands for freshwater with the available renewable supply. The government is well aware of the threats that water stress can pose — economic stagnation, the demise of water-dependent industries, and conflicts over resources.
