ASSET MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS & INSIGHTS FOR UTILITY MANAGERS

  • Cybersecurity Importance On The Rise In Water Utility Operations
    Cybersecurity Importance On The Rise In Water Utility Operations

    As water utilities migrate toward remote system monitoring and real-time control, the risks associated with cybersecurity tick upward as well. While the rewards of digitalization offer real promise, the associated complexity and security concerns pose corresponding risks. That is why it is important to have an overall risk-management process for the organizational level, the business process level, and for the information system and data levels as well. 

  • Lifecycle Management — Enhancing The ROI Of Control System Investments
    Lifecycle Management — Enhancing The ROI Of Control System Investments

    In water plant operations, there’s no such thing as simply maintaining the status quo. Any utility that is not moving forward is falling behind. Whether a water treatment or wastewater treatment plant (WTP/WWTP) chooses to rely on in-house resources or outside specialists, here are some lifecycle management approaches they can use to upgrade control capabilities without compromising performance or return on investment. 

  • Prioritizing Alarm Responses For Better Workforce Management
    Prioritizing Alarm Responses For Better Workforce Management

    While the laws of physics and chemistry have not changed, the ways that water and wastewater treatment plants (WTPs/WWTPs) are being forced to deal with them certainly have — e.g., disinfection byproducts (DBPs), tighter turbidity standards, harmful algal blooms, and PFAS challenges. Even when plant throughput stays the same, the demands on plant personnel continue to increase. Here’s how evolving toward better workforce management processes can help. 

  • Coping With Mixed-Source Water Quality And Corrosion Challenges
    Coping With Mixed-Source Water Quality And Corrosion Challenges

    When it becomes necessary to expand or blend water supply sources, variety is not necessarily the spice of life. Whether new water sources are surface water or groundwater, fresh, brackish, seawater, or water recovered from aquifer storage, they can ultimately impact water treatment plant (WTP) operations and finished water quality — including compliance with the U.S. EPA Lead and Copper Rule.

    How Alarmed Should You Be About Operator Effectiveness?

    As water and wastewater treatment plant (WTP/WWTP) processes and control systems become more sophisticated, maximizing operator effectiveness becomes more complex as well. A well-planned alarm and control strategy can make a significant difference between valuable decision-making information and confusing, disjointed, data points. This article highlights key strategies for foreseeing problems in advance, fixing them faster, and having a higher success rate by maximizing operator effectiveness.
