    Industry experts and government officials fear that when President Donald Trump’s proposed $1 trillion infrastructure plan is finally “laid out,” water infrastructure projects could largely be “left out.”

  4. What Now? EPA Priorities In The Trump Era
    4/25/2017

    The U.S. EPA has a job to do despite having its financial and human resources trimmed by the new presidential administration. Three U.S. EPA Office of Water directors, presenting at the 2017 Water & Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association (WWEMA) Washington Forum, laid out action plans for addressing the nation's most pressing water-quality threats in a manner that can (or must) achieve results efficiently.

  5. Redefining 'Reliable Connections' For Water Distribution
    4/21/2017

  6. How Do We Get The Message Out About The Importance Of Water Infrastructure?
    4/6/2017

    The need for improving our nation’s critical infrastructure is as important and necessary as ever.  Yet, when people who are not involved with the water/wastewater industry think of all that needs to be done for infrastructure, they immediately think of the roads they drive on and the bridges that are simply part of those same roads.  Others think of our power grid and its frailties, while some worry about their internet access.  It is hard to find people who consider our water and wastewater delivery system as a priority.

  7. Water Reuse Within Reach: Guidance For Potential Practitioners
    3/29/2017

    “Water Champion” Paula Kehoe looks to do for the nation what she did for San Francisco — to greatly expand water reuse opportunities and implementation. In this Q&A, she discusses her new role as chair of a national commission for onsite non-potable reuse, the San Francisco model, and the best practices and obstacles for sustainable water operations.

  8. 6 Ways To Improve Payment Performance
    3/20/2017

    With rising regulatory and infrastructure costs, it’s more important than ever for water and wastewater utilities to collect what they’re owed from ratepayers. But how can they go about improving collection?

  9. The Future Of Water Management
    3/16/2017

    To minimize losses and address mounting concerns, the water industry is now adopting advanced sensor and communications solutions designed specifically for “smart” Internet of Things (IoT) water management. In large part, the move toward implementing smart water solutions is being driven by stricter government compliance requirements, the evolution of smart cities, and the need for water conservation.

  10. Let’s Put The 'W' In Infrastructure
    3/14/2017

    We need to make water infrastructure a clear priority in the new administration’s infrastructure investment plans. Let’s make sure there’s a “W” in any new infrastructure program.
