Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Keeping The Operator In Focus: The Four Pillars Of Operator Effectiveness
    8/2/2018

    This paper shows how the four pillars of operator effectiveness lead operators to greater awareness, faster response and better decisions.

  2. Turbidity’s Role In EPA Compliance
    6/11/2018

    Turbidity measurement is both a nebulous, oft-misunderstood concept and the master link in a chain of events affecting U.S. EPA drinking water compliance. It can influence, or be influenced by, almost every other link in a water treatment process. Here is a quick overview of turbidity’s relationship to drinking water compliance standards and some tips for keeping a water treatment process in balance.

  3. Upcoming Standards And Compliance Regarding Lead-Free Requirements
    9/18/2013

    Badger Meter has and will continue to manufacture and provide products that meet the requirements of current and future lead-free standards. This white paper discusses these changing industry needs both as they relate to Badger Meter products and to water utilities in general.

  4. Take Charge Of Your Facility’s Water Usage…
    6/19/2015

    Water is a precious resource! Now, more than ever, businesses and facilities must take charge of their water usage to help with water conservation and lower water bills.

  5. AMI And The Zen Of Water Utility Management
    5/26/2017

    Drinking water utilities have a lot on their plates. Aside from the inherent technical difficulty of providing a vital service, they have to maintain positive customer relations, contend with increasingly strained budgets, and run operations with as little stress to employees as possible.

  6. The Challenge Of Flow Disturbances On Meter Accuracy
    7/10/2018

    Accurately measuring flow is critical for water utility operations. Also, regulatory agencies mandate flow monitoring and require annual calibration of meters. But even a meter in perfect condition and properly calibrated can read inaccurately. Flow disturbances are a common cause of accuracy and repeatability errors.

  7. ORP And pH — What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
    11/15/2016

    When I look back at 2016 one of the most significant trends I observed was the growing acceptance of ORP measurements, especially for monitoring disinfection. With one caveat, the ORP value measured in a solution provides an unambiguous measure of the disinfection efficacy.

  8. Monitoring Raw Water Turbidity – What’s Important!
    3/27/2018

    Monitoring raw water turbidity is important to inform the operator of significant changes in water quality, especially turbidity, allowing the operator to make process chemistry changes to respond to the increasing raw water turbidity. Variations in raw water present turbidity measurement challenges different from those found elsewhere in a typical treatment plant.

  9. Add Flow To Your Liquid Analysis With Advanced Analytical Instrumentation
    7/16/2014

    Averting regulatory violations and fines. Avoiding system disruptions. Maintaining effective monitoring in complex applications. How do you tackle these kinds of age-old plant monitoring problems? 

  10. Portable Parallel Analysis: Streamlining Distribution System Water Testing
    3/6/2015

    A Water Quality Specialist used the Hach SL1000 Parallel Portable Analyzer (PPA) to test 6 parameters simultaneously – all within about 8 minutes.  Previously, the procedure took 20 minutes just for one parameter.
