Regulation Updates For Utility Management

  1. Knowledge Provides Clarity: Practice-Oriented Training In The Water Sector

    The issue of water supply is high on the agenda of the South African government. According to information from the Department of Water Affairs in South Africa, the country needs more than 8,000 qualified workers to make up for shortcomings in the operation and maintenance of South African water supply and wastewater disposal plants.

  2. Expert Advice To Maximize Clarifier Performance

    Clarifiers are an important component of the wastewater treatment process.

    When the pressure builds up in the underground systems that distribute water, it doesn’t take a creative mind to imagine what could happen next. The resulting bursts can mean extensive repairs to the pipes, significant restoration to damaged property, and the prospect of lost water revenue pouring out of the system.

  8. How To Use SCADA To Avoid Overflows

    If wastewater treatment plant operators have nightmares, it’s a good bet that many of them have to do with sewage overflows. Few events are as catastrophic for a wastewater facility as a surge of water it can’t process being churned out into the public sphere, in violation of environmental regulations, and to the detriment of public health.

  9. How To Evolve With SCADA

    Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are the digital pulse of water and wastewater treatment plants. Serving as the information hub, SCADA makes the most of the day’s cutting-edge technology and in turn uses it to make the most of the plant’s operations. But how to keep up with a system that evolves as quickly as the greatest minds in the field will allow?
