    An unusual culprit has been identified as the source behind rotten smelling water in Austin, Texas. Though the source of the smell was surprising, at least it wasn’t too difficult to deal with.

  2. The Data Influx: Transforming Data Overload Into Business Insights
    10/4/2018

    “We have too much data” is the refrain we continually hear from water utilities. It’s no surprise that managing data from multiple sources and turning it into business insights presents a daunting challenge; however, data influx does not have to be a burden. When managed well, there’s no such thing as too much data, especially if your business is implementing a big data strategy — a topic that has implications and reach beyond the scope of this paper.

    5/22/2019

    The term “carbon footprint” has been on everyone’s lips since the start of the climate change discussion. Very few industries can claim that they play no part in impacting the carbon footprint — either for good or bad. This is also true for the water and wastewater industry that will have to take a closer look at increasing the efficiency of their facilities to reduce their carbon footprint.

  7. How To Conduct Water Quality Analysis For Ozone Disinfection
    5/24/2018

    Ozone disinfection has long been a critical process in the wastewater treatment industry. And, because ozone is relied on so heavily to oxidize a wide variety of potential wastewater contaminants, water quality analysis during the disinfection process is paramount. Once the ozone process itself is understood, its water quality ramifications and the quality parameters that offer insight into its efficacy can be analyzed and taken into account.
