  1. A Virtuous Circle: Optimizing Operation & Maintenance For Leak Detection
    5/9/2018

    Operational savings realized through high-tech leak detection techniques could pay for your utility’s advanced leak detection equipment.

  2. Easier, Faster, And Safer Option For Measuring Total Nitrogen
    7/23/2018

    Total nitrogen (TN) has become a compound of concern because of its impact on eutrophication on water sources. And as more states begin to set limits for TN, accurate testing becomes paramount. Unfortunately, multiple labs and variable test procedures can lead to disparities in final results. Many of today’s test methods are also time consuming, expensive, and even unsafe for lab technicians to use.

  3. Beyond Traditional AMI — The Smart Utility Network (SUN) Sheds Light Across The Entire Utility Water Cycle
    9/7/2018

    Many utilities today are investing in advanced metering infrastructure (AMI). However, many of these same utilities often don’t realize the breadth of capabilities that a smart utility network (SUN) now offers. In the past, AMI networks were typically used for accurate metering and billing. Today, a smart utility network builds upon traditional AMI to provide multiple advantages across the full water cycle — and beyond.

  4. California Prepares For A Drought-Prone Future Under Stringent Title 22 Water Reuse Standards
    6/28/2018

    Fluence’s first MABR plant in mainland U.S. gives California new medium- and small-scale treatment options that comply with the state’s stringent standards for water reuse

  5. Linking Technologies Key To A Successful Potable Reuse Project
    3/13/2019

    Potable reuse offers a massive opportunity to recover water from the wastewater process, but projects face a variety of barriers to getting off the ground. Most successful early adopters engaged early with their constituents and implemented smaller-scale demonstration projects that were accessible to the public to prove the technology and process.

  6. Clearing Up Misconceptions About Turbidimeter Performance And Calibration
    4/19/2018

    There is little doubt about the importance of taking turbidity readings as part of drinking water treatment. However, there are certain misperceptions about the associated requirements and procedures needed to confirm the validity of those readings. The major points of confusion seem to revolve around perception of the terms “approved,” “calibration,” and “validation.” Here is a quick synopsis on what you really need to know about meeting U.S. EPA Method 180.1: Determination of Turbidity by Nephelometry for accurate turbidity readings.

  7. Virtual and Augmented Realities For The Water Industry
    7/5/2018

    No technology innovations have received as much coverage over the past year as virtual (VR) and augmented realities (AR). Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri and Google’s Assistant have us all talking to our devices and interacting with non-humans on a regular basis. 

  8. Smart Printers And Online Ordering Solution Fuel Restaurant Chain’s Growth

    With plans for rapid expansion, Taziki’s looked to grow off-premise dining revenues and reduce labor costs in the face of changing labor laws.

  9. Chlorine vs. Chloramine: A Tale Of Two Chemistries
    4/17/2018

    In drinking water treatment’s ongoing battle between disinfection and disinfection byproducts (DBPs), most water utility customers are oblivious to the process. One thing they do notice, however, is when their water smells or tastes bad. Here are some insights that can help water treatment plant (WTP) operators deal with their internal concerns about DBPs and residual chlorine or ammonia levels, as well as their external concerns about customer perceptions of water quality.
