Wastewater Measurement

  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. Two Processes, One Flow Metering Technology: The Benefits Of Standardization
    3/21/2018

    Wastewater treatment facilities use multiple processes and a variety of equipment to produce water clean enough for reuse. Each process within the treatment train may serve a different function yet use the same or similar equipment. In such cases, standardizing equipment may be beneficial.

  4. How To Extend The Life Of Your Wastewater Pumps
    3/20/2018

    Wastewater treatment plants use numerous pumps in a variety of types and sizes to move water through the process. Depending on plant configuration, they may pump influent, activated sludge, thickened or digested sludge, biosolids, scum, filtrate, effluent, or reuse water. Each matrix has specific characteristics that engineers consider when designing pumping systems.

  5. 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.

  6. Water System Operations Made Easier

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

  7. 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. 

  8. Small Wastewater Plant Gets Big Technology Update
    2/24/2018

    When federal and state environmental agency mandates required the City of Havre, Montana to upgrade its wastewater treatment facility, utility leaders decided to implement a more efficient record keeping process at the same time. The newly upgraded wastewater treatment facility officially started up in September 2016 with the capacity to treat 1.8 million gallons of sewage per day.

  9. 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.

  10. Energy Savings In Water And Wastewater Systems
