SCADA and Automation Solutions and Insight For Utility Managers

  1. The Future Of Water Management

    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.

  3. All-in-One SCADA

    Serving roughly 35,000 people, the Town of Natick Water/Sewer Division remotely monitors 2 water reservoirs, 32 sewer lift stations and 2 drinking water treatment plants. By Chris Little

  4. Smart Networks Are The Answer. What’s The Question?

    Water utilities around the globe face the same challenges: increasing population, urbanization, and more frequent extreme weather events. New supply to meet increasing demand is very expensive. Changing customer behavior to reduce demand is very difficult. The question is how to get more from existing infrastructure.

  5. Raising The Bar On Scalability

    Automation and information systems represent a major investment for industrial businesses, both large and small. Long-term protection of that investment should be a significant consideration when selecting a partner and a system.

  6. Water Utilities Push For AMI And AMR Standardization

    Through research organization collaboration and teamwork, a number of major U.S. utilities are fighting for freedom of choice in advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and automatic meter reading (AMR).

  7. Tackling Modern Wastewater Treatment Challenges And Unlocking Efficiencies With Advanced Water Technologies

    Research studies, empirical evidence, and the march of time all suggest that the implementation of next-generation technologies at wastewater utilities is profoundly important, if not imperative, for efficient operations.

  8. The Instrumentation Life-Cycle And Instrumentation Systems Within The UK Water Industry: From Concept To Replacement

    The water industry in the UK faces a turning point in the use of instrumentation with the advent of TOTEX (capital expenditures [CAPEX] + operating expenditures [OPEX]) within the current Asset Management Period, the sixth since it privatized in 1989.

  9. Smart Water Networks Will Endure When IoT Bubble Bursts

    In its latest Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, leading analyst firm Gartner places the Internet of Things (IoT) at the top of the life cycle phase it calls the ‘Peak of Inflated Expectations’.

  10. Consultant’s Corner: Top 5 Requirements for Good Modeling

    Dr. Jon Wicks, CH2M’s Global Technology Leader for flood risk modeling, shares his thoughts on the requirements for good modeling, building on discussions held at the recent Flood Modeller Suite Conference.
