  6. 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.  

  7. How To Cost-Effectively Remove Multiple Contaminants From Water Simultaneously
    4/25/2018

    Water utilities must protect the public health by producing a final product that meets all regulatory requirements. In addition, the water must be pleasing to the customer, with no taste or odor issues. And finally, utilities must stay abreast of emerging contaminants, health advisories, and new regulations. It’s a constant challenge to shoulder these responsibilities while staying within tight budgets. Utilities need a technology that helps them achieve multiple goals cost-effectively.

  8. How To Improve Test Accuracy With The Latest Sampling Technology
    4/25/2018

    Sampling and laboratory testing are major responsibilities for water professionals. Test results are used for process control, and ultimately to determine that water is safe for drinking, reuse, or discharge to the environment. Regulatory agencies rely on reported results for proof of permit compliance. So, obtaining representative, properly collected and preserved samples is the first critical step to ensure accurate test results.

  9. CRM Pioneer Now Pioneering Comprehensive Water Recycling, Too
    4/11/2018

    Since 1999, when business people at more than 150,000 companies worldwide wanted to keep better track of their customers — and be more responsive — they turned to Salesforce.com and its industry-leading customer relationship management (CRM) software. Now, companies looking for ideas on sustainability, in terms of water recycling, can turn to the new Salesforce Tower in San Francisco as a leading-edge environmental solution as well. It is estimated that the building’s water recycling system will save more than 7.5-million gallons of drinking water annually — enough to supply more than 16,000 San Francisco residents.

  10. Science Experts Tell EPA To Regulate Toxic Perchlorate
    4/10/2018

    One of the many travesties in the failure to properly protect drinking water in the United States is EPA’s decades-long inability to set an enforceable drinking standard for perchlorate, a chemical that harms the thyroid — critical for normal growth and development — and that contaminates drinking water systems serving over 17 million people in the U.S.
