  1. Enhancing Water System Reliability And Capacity For Boston Residents
    4/28/2017

    Enhancing process reliability and increasing capacity are common issues facing water municipalities. On the one hand, community demographics are constantly evolving and water municipalities need to accommodate the impact to capacity requirements. At the same time, older systems that support pumping operations are not getting any younger and as control systems age, for example, it can become more time consuming to maintain equipment and more difficult to find replacement parts after systems have been in place for many years.

  6. Does Public Outreach Help Or Hinder Acceptance Of Recycled Wastewater As A Drinking Water Source?
    12/15/2017

    When California’s AB2022 went into effect earlier this year, allowing the bottling of advanced purified reused water for educational purposes, Orange County Water District (OCWD) and Orange County Sanitation District began the #GetOverIt! campaign to continue to push for consumer acceptance of recycled water systems.

  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.

    8/1/2017

    Now that the peak season dust has completely settled, it’s the perfect time for a tune-up in your warehouses and DCs. Here, are some DC improvement ideas.

  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.

  10. The Microbes Have Us Outnumbered 20 To 1: Should We Be Worried?
    7/12/2018

    A lot has changed over the past 15 years. Back in the early 2000s, many utilities weren’t interested in understanding what was in their water beyond the contaminant and disinfection byproduct levels they were regulated to comply with. But as Pat Whalen, President and CEO of LuminUltra, explains in this ACE 2018 Water Talk interview, a steady stream of ongoing education and the modern data storage and analytics that cloud computing provides, has developed some rabid fans eager to explore the microbiology of their water systems.
