City Of Auburndale Leading The Way With Smart Water Technologies
Located in central Florida, the City of Auburndale is a thriving and steadily growing community that boasts great spaces to live, work and play. With more than a dozen lakes and ponds within its borders, a crucial component of the city’s appeal can be found in its abundance of water. In 2016, the Public Utilities Department saw a need to upgrade aging infrastructure across its water system. The city’s water meters and endpoints had provided many years of reliable service, and it was an opportune time to investigate how more advanced technology could benefit the utility and its customers.
Aging Water System Transformed Into Leading Smart Water Solution
When water utility managers in Bedford, Texas, determined it was time to replace the city’s aging water infrastructure, they anticipated it would be a long and potentially challenging undertaking. However, by selecting a manufacturing partner with a comprehensive solutions portfolio, as well as turnkey distribution and installation partners, the Public Works Department achieved a successful and completely transformative infrastructure replacement project in less than two years. The project, which began in 2017, helped make Bedford one of the first cities in the country to deploy a smart water solution utilizing a secure LTE cellular network.
Pipelines Into The Past
Denver Water crews marvel at water lines from the 1880s as they are replaced to handle new demands.
Advanced AI Helps Optimize Energy Usage And Membrane Life
A North American city wanted to optimize operations at a SWTP in its drinking water distribution system. Innovyze investigated the SWTP’s processes, looking for key areas of potential optimization. Read the full case study to learn how a 15-20 percent savings in energy consumption costs was achieved.
EPANET 2.2.0: An EPA/Water Community Collaboration
Protecting and maintaining drinking water distribution systems is crucial to ensuring high quality drinking water. The purpose of a water distribution system is to deliver water to consumers with appropriate quality, quantity, and pressure, from its source to the point of use. The optimal management of these systems requires data and information, including a digital model of the water system depicting its pipes, valves, pumps, tanks, and other attributes.
Kansas City Water Removes Guesswork On Asset Repair And Replacements
As is common with many North American utilities, the underground water and wastewater pipe network in Kansas City is aging while population and demand continue to grow. These aging assets have led to water main breaks, sinkholes, and, in some cases hastened the deterioration of adjacent assets not associated with the water system. Kansas City Water is also subject to a federal Consent Decree of $4B over a 25- year period to reduce wet-weather overflow volume from their sanitary sewer network.
Leveraging Rentals For Pneumatic Conveying Applications
Pneumatic conveying applications are critical to many facilities – when you can’t move material you can’t make or sell your product. Because of a historical lack of availability of specialized rental blowers and compressors for pneumatic conveying, plants often ether accepted the production outage or rented a more readily available 2 stage oil-free rotary screw compressor designed for 90-150 PSIG plant air service that is very inefficient at the reduced pressures needed for pneumatic conveying.
Managing Data To Maximize Asset Maintenance Efficiency
Utilities are always looking for ways to unlock efficiency, which is the simplest and surest path to saving money. When it comes to asset maintenance, a key has been found.
Denver Sets The Stage For Sweeping LSL Replacements, Partners With 120Water For Modern Sample Management
Denver has been developing a comprehensive inventory of known and suspected lead service lines using a combination of property records, water quality tests, and visual inspections of service lines. With an estimated 64,000-84,000 properties that may have lead services lines, Denver decided to proactively begin a Lead Reduction Program to replace all customer-owned lead service lines with copper lines at no direct charge to the customer.
