  1. Remote Monitoring Provides Water Resilience During Crisis

    Managing three drinking water treatment facilities, multiple pump stations, more than 350 miles of pipelines, and a wastewater treatment facility is challenging even in normal conditions for a small city where agriculture is an economic driver and water demand can exceed 22 MGD.

  2. Large Utility Relies On Trimble For Integrated Approach To Smart Meter Deployment

    The solution, which includes Trimble Unity software and the Trimble R2 GPS, also provides officials the means to be proactive with inspecting for lead service lines.

  3. Early Leak Detection Efforts Already Yield Significant Savings

    A large municipal water utility in the southwest operates multiple facilities that provide more than 170 MGD of drinking water to residents and businesses. The utility, which spans 100 square miles, is prone to leaky pipes because parts of its distribution system have been in place for nearly a century. Also known as non-revenue water, or NRW, these leaks significantly drive up the cost of production.

  4. Capitalizing On The Advantages Of The Digital Twin For The Global Water Sector

    A Digital Twin is a virtual replica of a physical asset that is updated in real-time via a two-way data connection and, as such, representative of its live characteristics.

  5. Microbiological Monitoring Of Paints Using 2nd Generation ATP

    A paint manufacturer produces a wide range of paint products for industrial, commercial, and residential applications. The products are manufactured in large batches of up to 10 tons. Before each batch is packaged and shipped, a number of tests are performed to ensure that the product meets strict quality control requirements. 

  6. What’s In A Name? Three Intricacies Of Organism Names In NGS Data

    There’s no universal method for cataloging organisms or for converting sequencing data to taxonomic data, so careful examination of methodology, as well as the results, is needed when analyzing DNA-associated data.

  7. How Can I Use NGS To Improve My Industrial Process?

    Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a tool that has revolutionized many fields of study.  It also goes by some other names that you may come across including Second Generation Sequencing (SGS) and massively parallel sequencing (MPS).

  8. Identifying Accurate Reference Materials For Water-Testing Confidence

    Going through the motions of water sample testing for regulatory reporting requirements is only half the battle. It is also important that water operators use appropriately qualified reference materials and procedures to ensure the accuracy and reliability of their results. Here are some insights into reference-material evaluation that can generate the highest confidence in water testing results.

  9. The Insta-Valve 250 Minimizes Disruption During An Emergency

    Like so many municipalities, the City of Miamisburg has an aging infrastructure of valves that had not been excercised in decades. Read the full project brief to learn how Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed greater control that minimized shutdown when a water main ruptured.

  10. Evolution Of Pipeline Leak Detection

    As the sheer number of pipelines crisscrossing the country continues to increase, there is an urgent need to ensure pipeline infrastructure safety. The age of many of the pipelines and the number of different products flowing makes this a challenging prospect. Now, new technology has been developed that meets the need for reliable protection that complies with regulatory requirements while eliminating false alarms.
