Drinking Water Features

  1. Design First, Build Later
    2/16/2018

    Sounds simple. It makes sense. But far too many people do not do this. They put together an idea, a process, but fail to take the design to completion before starting to build. Cutting corners always comes at a price. There is an old saying in Project Management, “You can have it good, fast, or cheap. Pick any TWO”. Cutting corners will bump your cost, decrease quality, or possibly both.

  2. Quantifying Water Quality Benefits Of Conservation Practices
    1/29/2018

    Although we know that farm conservation practices, like cover crops, reduced tillage and nutrient management, as well as improve overall performance and environmental outcomes, it’s difficult to say exactly how these practices affect resources, such as water quality.

  3. Guiding Water And Wastewater Treatment Under The New EPA
    1/29/2018

    It’s no secret that the U.S. EPA has changed course in the last year. But how have those changes affected local water and wastewater treatment operations? And how are those operations going to evolve along with the federal agency?

  4. Water And The Internet of Things: 2018
    1/26/2018

    I became interested in water and the Internet of Things (IoT) several years ago when I had a below groundwater leak at home that resulted in a large water bill. Since I live in the Silicon Valley, CA, the high tech capital of the world, I thought there should be a better way to track water usage so problems can be identified and solved sooner.

  5. How Are We Solving PFC Contamination?

    PFC contamination is the number one drinking water issue today. So how are local and federal leaders working to put an end to it?

  6. Emerging Trends In Disinfection: Peracetic Acid
    1/24/2018

    As regulations on chlorinated disinfection byproducts and total residual chlorine become increasingly stringent, peracetic acid (PAA) is gaining in both interest and usage as a water reclamation disinfectant. Here’s what you need to know.

  7. A 'SWIFT' Approach To Managed Aquifer Recharge
    1/24/2018

    The Sustainable Water Initiative for Tomorrow (SWIFT) will not only restore declining levels to the Potomac Aquifer System, but it will also reduce nutrient discharges to the Chesapeake Bay.

  8. U.S. Water Strategy: Think Locally, Act Globally
    1/24/2018

    A new plan has been created by the U.S. government to bring safe drinking water, sanitation services, sustainability, and resiliency to the world’s most water-stressed countries, with benefits for the U.S. as well.

  9. High-Throughput DNA Sequencing To Profile Microbial Water Quality Of Potable Reuse
    1/24/2018

    Research scientists are making strides to advance the safety and application of potable water reuse through the use of metagenomics for water quality analysis.
