  • Leveraging Rental 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.

  • 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.

  • How To Make Data-Driven Equipment Fleet Decisions

    Acquiring the big iron needed to dig earth, move materials, and build and maintain water and wastewater infrastructure to keep it operational is not cheap. Equipment for dewatering, bypasses, filtration, and more are typically among the largest capital expenditures of municipalities and contractors. In today’s budget-conscious environment, operations and fleet management are increasingly charged with containing equipment costs and even generating a return on investment. No small feat, if you ask me.

  • Fort Wayne Collects & Tests More Than 900 Consumer Samples In 5 Months

    The City of Fort Wayne wanted to test 1000 locations to map high-lead neighborhoods for their LSLR program. However, they faced numerous challenges in the process: logistical problems in manually dropping off kits, low return rates, and the struggle to get opt-ins for the LSLR program - all on top of being understaffed. The biggest obstacle was relaying information and educating residents to get samples filled and returned properly.

  • Newark Sets The Standard For Community Engagement And Education With Their New LSLR Program

    The City of Newark, NJ initiated a Lead Service Line Replacement program in 2018 as part of its efforts to provide clean, safe, and reliable drinking water for all residents. One of the biggest challenges faced by the city is engaging residents as the project gets underway. With a large transient population of renters, it can be hard to get residents and landlords to fully engage in a drinking water program. Not only can a lack of understanding on the part of the public jeopardize their health, it also makes it difficult for Newark to collect information needed to validate their LSLR program.

  • Loveland Takes Guesswork Out Of LCR Requirements

    The City of Loveland’s Water Utility has served customers for decades, proudly bringing water “from snowy caps to Loveland taps.” When the Lead and Copper Rule went into effect in the early 1990s, it was labor-intensive to find a pool of people in the correct tier to complete the sampling.
