  3. Lessons From DC Water’s Rock Star, George Hawkins
    1/31/2018

    In just eight years at DC Water, which provides drinking water, sewage collection, and sewage treatment in Washington, D.C., serving more than 600,000 residents, George Hawkins transformed the utility from insular and guarded to open and innovative.

  4. Guiding Water And Wastewater Treatment Under The New EPA
    1/29/2018

    It’s no secret that the U.S. EPA has changed course in the last year. But how have those changes affected local water and wastewater treatment operations? And how are those operations going to evolve along with the federal agency?

    1/25/2018

    PFC contamination is the number one drinking water issue today. So how are local and federal leaders working to put an end to it?

  6. Emerging Trends In Disinfection: Peracetic Acid
    1/24/2018

    As regulations on chlorinated disinfection byproducts and total residual chlorine become increasingly stringent, peracetic acid (PAA) is gaining in both interest and usage as a water reclamation disinfectant. Here’s what you need to know.

  7. A 'SWIFT' Approach To Managed Aquifer Recharge
    1/24/2018

    The Sustainable Water Initiative for Tomorrow (SWIFT) will not only restore declining levels to the Potomac Aquifer System, but it will also reduce nutrient discharges to the Chesapeake Bay.

  8. Tackling Modern Wastewater Treatment Challenges And Unlocking Efficiencies With Advanced Water Technologies
    1/24/2018

    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.

  9. Delivering Assets And Strengthening Communities: A CBP3 Primer
    1/24/2018

    Local government can harness the power of community-based, public-private partnerships (CBP3s) to efficiently implement programs that encompass delivery of many unique assets — such as stormwater management programs that include green infrastructure. Can your community benefit from this delivery approach?

  10. Bioleaching For Enhanced Sludge Dewaterability — Pilot Study And Full-Scale Application
    1/24/2018

    Innovation doesn’t always flip current thinking on its head; in many cases, it improves an existing process to give it better or wider application. Such is the case when bioleaching is applied to wastewater sludge.
