Wastewater Management White Papers and Case Studies

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. SewerGEMS Optimizes AEGEA’s Sewerage Network Expansion In Lakes Region
    3/1/2018

    Prolagos, an AEGEA company, provides water and sanitation services for five municipalities in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The concession covers the famed Lakes Region (Região dos Lagos), where seasonal populations fluctuate from nearly 400,000 to more than 2 million.

  5. Water System Operations Made Easier
    3/1/2018

    Traditionally, water system operators have relied on SCADA systems to provide insight into their networks.

  6. Ignition Increases Flexibility, Lowers Costs For Two Water Utilities
    2/28/2018

    When Park City Water in Utah needed a new system for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and human-machine interface (HMI), it picked the same solution chosen by its neighbor, Mountain Regional Water (MRW) District. Both MRW and Park City have seen significant improvements since switching from their previous SCADA systems to Ignition. MRW saves more than $400,000 per year on energy with greater control from Ignition. Park City saves the equivalent of one full-time employee by using Ignition to automate its reports to a state agency. 

  7. Historic Town Remedies FOG Problem
    2/21/2018

    Among the pump stations managed by Branford, CT, is a long-term problematic station located at Burban Street. There were two primary problems at this station: 1) clogging from modern day trash and raggy, stringy materials, and 2) fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from a nearby nursing home and restaurants, which accumulate and float on the water surface, resulting in a horrendous mess.

  8. Hydraulic Modeling For Esri© ArcGIS Users
    2/15/2018

    Water and wastewater networks are inherently geospatial, comprising interconnected assets that are often underground, buried beneath urban and rural communities.

  9. Energy Savings In Water And Wastewater Systems
    2/13/2018

    This white paper addresses how hydraulic models can be used to instantiate energy savings by reducing energy waste, promote better efficiencies in operating a pumping system, and exploit flexible energy tariffs available in the market place.

  10. WaterGEMS® Prioritizes Manila Water Facilities For Disaster Resiliency And Contingency Plan
    2/1/2018

    Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Philippines experience frequent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and typhoons that cause catastrophic losses. Manila Water Company, Inc., prepared a Natural Calamity Risk Resiliency and Mitigation Masterplan to ensure that there is a reliable water supply in the event of a natural disaster for the service area covering the East Zone of Metro Manila (the National Capital Region) and Rizal Province.
