  1. DNA Sequencing: The Future Of Water And Wastewater Analysis?
    11/16/2016

    DNA sequencing can provide more information on water and wastewater than traditional methods. Is it time for treatment operations to adopt the method?

  2. ORP And pH — What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
    11/15/2016

    When I look back at 2016 one of the most significant trends I observed was the growing acceptance of ORP measurements, especially for monitoring disinfection. With one caveat, the ORP value measured in a solution provides an unambiguous measure of the disinfection efficacy.

    Prolagos, a subsidiary of Aegea Group, is responsible for providing water and sewerage services to five municipalities in Região dos Lagos, Rio de Janeiro. Prolagos manages a total water network encompassing 2,000 kilometers of distribution pipelines and accommodates for variable seasonal fluctuations ranging from 400,000 to almost 2 million inhabitants at the peak of the tourist season.

  6. Shanghai Investigation Sets BIM Standard On Ningbo Yongxin’s Urban Flood Control Project
    11/1/2016

    In response to the devastation from a 2013 typhoon that caused the Yongxin and Yongjiang rivers in Ningbo, China to overflow, Ningbo Raw Water Group Ltd. commissioned the detailed design and construction of a CNY 178 million emergency sluice pump. The pump would provide flood control measures and mitigate future flood losses to improve urban infrastructure services within the Zhejiang province. To avoid the risk of additional flooding from another typhoon, the Raw Water Group required the urban flood control project to be delivered in a demanding eight-month schedule—a process that would ordinarily take 24 months to complete.

  7. Top 10 Technologies From WEFTEC 2016
    10/25/2016

    300,000 square feet. That was the size of the tradeshow floor at WEFTEC, the world's largest annual water quality exhibition. I didn't see every technology showcased last month in New Orleans (over a thousand exhibitors were on hand), but here’s a “best of” list from the many that I came across — a snapshot of various technologies that stood out from the masses, exceptional for their level of innovation and potential for industry impact.

  8. Modernizing Our Country’s Drinking Water Monitoring Data
    10/6/2016

    We live in a society that allows us to get information through our phones, TVs, and computers from across the world in a matter of seconds. Although we’ve come a long way in the information age, some of our country’s most important public health information is still collected and shared using antiquated methods like manual data entry and even paper reporting.

  9. Modern Technology For Combating Bacterial Water Contamination
    9/19/2016

    Mobile-enabled geographic information systems (GIS) herald a new age for bacterial source tracking, allowing increased stakeholder involvement, more informed decision-making, and enhanced water quality.

  10. Automated Wireless Monitoring Of Wastewater Collection Systems
