Wastewater Management White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Improve Your Plant Efficiency With Accurate Water And Wastewater Monitoring
    12/10/2019

    A West Coast wastewater management facility provides design, management, and maintenance of the sanitary sewer system for an entire county, including the conveyance system and treatment system. The wastewater treatment plant has been established for over 50 years and has the capacity to treat 41 million gallons of sanitary sewage per day (mgd).value chain. Siemens suggested that the customer try the Siemens HydroRanger 200 controller. The HydroRanger 200 uses proven, continuous, ultrasonic echo ranging technology to monitor water and wastewater of any consistency up to 15 m (50 ft) in depth.

  2. Remote Monitoring Provides Water Resilience During Crisis
    11/15/2019

    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.

  3. What Are The Benefits Of The Digital Twin For Water?
    11/14/2019

    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.

  4. Microbiological Monitoring Of Paints Using 2nd Generation ATP
    11/13/2019

    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. 

  5. Using ATP To Reduce Risks From Legionella In Cooling Towers
    11/4/2019

    A semiconductor manufacturing facility in France relies on an extensive cooling system to maintain stable conditions throughout their production facilities. The cooling system includes 19 cooling towers and 14 cooling water networks spread over a 135-acre site.

  6. Hurricane Harvey Was No Match For These Pumps
    8/28/2019

    The main lift station serving the waste water treatment plant in Morgan’s Point, Texas, continually experienced problems with its three standard non-clog pumps. The pumps frequently clogged when rainfall totals reached or exceeded 2 inches. Shop rags, pieces of 2 x 4 lumber, plastic bottles, gloves, and wet wipes all commonly clogged the pumps when the standard demand increased. Pump removal, unplugging, and recurring repairs were required, but the service company was not always available for immediate assistance, causing problems for residents serviced by this lift station.

  7. Denver Water Enhances Operations And Water Quality Studies With Live Modeling
    7/19/2019

    Denver Water serves 1.4 million people in the city of Denver and the surrounding suburbs. It is the largest — and oldest — water utility in the state of Colorado and its service area covers more than 335 square miles.

  8. A Deluge of BIG DATA: The Connected Water Utility
    5/3/2019

    Water industry professionals are experiencing a data deluge. There’s a lot of data out there, gathered from sensors monitoring everything from water quality to pipe bursts — but altogether, it’s too much data divided among too many silos to make sense of what it all means.

  9. Identifying And Defining The Pressure Rating Standards For Flanged Valves
    4/29/2019

    Maintenance and performance of pressurized water distribution systems require a complete grasp on the pressure ratings of every component within the system.  Mueller gives valuable insight here for pressure rating standards needed for flanged valves.

  10. WannaCry And NotPetya Demand A Cybersecurity Strategy
    4/18/2019

    The need for a solid cybersecurity strategy has been discussed and debated for almost a half a century now, and yet the basic worm-type attacks first documented back in 1972 are still with us today. Why? Because even the most basic measures to protect control systems from these types of attacks are still not systematically employed.
