Wastewater Management White Papers and Case Studies

  1. WaterCAD’s Modeling Capabilities Produce Accurate Hydraulic Model In 70 Percent Less Time
    5/7/2018

    Varkom D.D. (Varkom) brings water and wastewater utility services to 175,000 people across seven townships and 20 municipalities in Croatia. The organization wanted a feasibility study completed to help better manage its assets. Read the full case study to learn how the team estimated that 70 percent of time was saved directly in model preparation and an additional 70 percent of time was saved in model management and preliminary design.

  2. Emergencies: Preventing, Preparing, And Responding
    4/23/2018

    Population health is a primary concern of water utilities, whether water demands are typical (daily demands) or an out-of-the ordinary event occurs and threatens the continuous, safe supply of potable water. Water utilities must be prepared to respond to emergencies before they occur, and this is where hydraulic modeling can be particularly useful.

  3. Digital Engineering Models Enable Comprehensive Lifecycle Information Management For Water And Wastewater Treatment Plants
    4/17/2018

    Water and wastewater treatment plant design is a large scale, complex engineering effort that requires a multi-discipline design team, often spread across many offices, and involving collaboration among different consulting firms, contractors, and owners.

  4. Revolutionizing Asset Management In The Water/Wastewater Industry
    4/17/2018

    The industrial world is awash with data and new information from sensors, applications, equipment, and people.

  5. Advancing Management Of Urban Water Infrastructure
    4/13/2018

    A wide range of issues can disrupt the normal functioning of an urban water system, such as storms and other natural disasters, pollution, physical damage, cyber incidents, aging and insufficient infrastructure, and rapid urban growth.

  6. FMCW Or ToF? Which Radar Level Technology Is Best For Tank Gauging In Custody Transfer Applications?
    4/9/2018

    Measuring the level of tanks used to hold fluids for custody transfer can be expensive. This is not due to the cost of the measurement instrumentation, but to what inaccurate measurements can cost the company. Picking the right instrumentation for applications is important. Which radar level technology should you choose for tank gauging in custody transfer applications? Frequency Modulated Continuous Waveform (FMCW) or pulsed Time-of-Flight (ToF or PToF).

  7. Are You Experiencing Deviation Alarms In Your High Pressure Process Vessels?
    4/9/2018

    In this white paper, learn how to decrease alarms due to redundant level devices not matching, especially in applications with high pressure and/or high temperature. The importance of Gas Phase Compensation (GPC) and how it affects level readings of guided wave radar (GWR) devices is critical. The presence of polar gas also can have an effect on the accuracy of any GWR that does not have GPC when installed in applications where high temperature or pressure is present. This paper will discuss these issues and address how to overcome them.

  8. Leveraging Water Network Data For System Management Prioritization
    4/2/2018

    KUB's water system has experienced 30 percent to 35 percent non-revenue water over the past 10 years; hard-to-find underground leaks are the big culprit. Reducing leaks improves customer service, increases operational efficiency, reduces expenses for chemicals and power, and has other benefits.

  9. City of Troy Improves Customer Relationships And Billing Accuracy With AMI Solution
    3/28/2018

    Located just south of Montgomery, Alabama, the City of Troy is a unique mix of southern small-town charm and big-city amenities. Read the full case study to learn how the City leveraged Sensus’ Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution to gather more data and monitor for issues likes leaks or pipe breaks

  10. Elaborate Stormwater System Saves Time And Money In Florida Project
    3/27/2018

    A stormwater management system designed for a new convenience store in Sarasota, FL, required a sophisticated and elaborate approach. When it was completed earlier this year, the complex system resulted in huge money and time savings for the property owner, which will enable the store to open this fall.
