Wastewater Management White Papers and Case Studies

  1. 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. 

  2. City Saves Big Money By Using Cloth Media Filters To Treat CSO Discharge
    4/12/2019

    The City of Rushville, Indiana had to remedy a consent order filed in 2007 for its untreated combined sewer overflow (CSO) discharges that were polluting the Flatrock River, a violation of the Clean Water Act. The city originally planned to install a 1 MGD stormwater storage tank, but was approached by Aqua-Aerobic representatives with a pilot test proposal utilizing a new technology.

  3. ABB Ability: Our Offering For Power Plants

    ABB provides an extensive selection of proven measurement and analytical products and solutions for power generation industry applications.

  4. How Digitalization Can Boost Natural Disaster Resiliency In Municipal Water And Sewerage Treatment
    3/28/2019

    Digitalization of the municipal water treatment industry is fragmented today, with instrumentation, control, and automation technologies mixed with manual operational activities. Such infrastructures can be detrimental in cases of hydro-geological events, such as severe storms and earthquakes. The good news: When natural disasters strike, digitalization can help get municipal water treatment back online quickly and effectively.

  5. Securing Industrial Systems In A Digital World
    1/11/2019

    The development of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) over the past two decades has changed the face of many industries. Operation Technology (OT) — largely industrial equipment — has become increasingly connected, and the integration of Information Technology (IT) components allows such devices to leverage software that drives data collection and analysis, resulting in enhanced performance and ultimately "smarter" machines.

  6. Tunnel Protects Chicago Neighborhood From Flooding
    1/9/2019

    A Chicago stormwater diversion tunnel designed to correct a chronic flooding problem that has plagued the city’s Albany Park neighborhood over the past decade has been recognized for its effectiveness and ingenuity.

  7. 5 Questions To Ask Before Selecting A Process Data Analytics Solution
    1/7/2019

    The data generation and collection strategies at the center of manufacturing processes have evolved dramatically, especially in recent years. Process manufacturers now collect and store huge volumes of data throughout their operations, both on and off premise, across multiple geographic locations, in an increasing number of separate data silos. In this paper, we propose five questions we believe every process manufacturing buyer should ask when evaluating a data analytics solution.

  8. Leveraging Predictive Analytics: A Case Study
    1/6/2019

    Often the first notification of a spill comes from a member of the public, hours and sometimes days after the first spill. This can intensify public health and environmental impacts and the cost of clean-up efforts. Following a sewer spill at an environmentally significant site at Midway Point in August 2017, TasWater sought a way to reduce the likelihood and impact of spill events occurring in the future.

  9. Devon Energy Uses Real-Time Data And Advanced Analytics To Make Better Decisions
    1/4/2019

    Like many other energy companies, Devon Energy, a leading independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company in North America, generates huge volumes of data. The company’s SCADA system monitors 6.5 million data points from multiple sites, with more than 10,000 updates per second. 

  10. Enhancing HVAC Performance: Siemens Clamp-On Flow Meters Chosen For NYC Building Complex
    12/11/2018

    A commercial real estate corporation that owns, develops and operates premier properties in major North American cities was one of the earliest companies to recognize the benefit of individually metering tenants for their utility usage. When designing a prestigious building complex in New York City, the company sought a flow meter that would facilitate this task. After careful consideration of several options, the choice became clear: clamp-on ultrasonic flow technology from Siemens.
