ASSET MANAGEMENT RESOURCES

  • Did you know that WATER ranks as one of North America’s top three ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) concerns, according to the 2019 RBC Global Asset Management Responsible Investment Survey?  This is not surprising, but it is very significant because it underlines how water assets today are at risk and that current management practices today simply are not sustainable. The existing infrastructure that is supposed to keep water available, safe and drinkable is quietly, sometimes loudly, crumbling in cities and communities around the globe. It is imperative that we start reassessing the way we think about resilience in water management and change our ways. With the pandemic and the rise of ESG as part of decision-making, now is the time to capitalize on innovation, to maximize the return on infrastructure renewal programs and at the same time accelerate our economic recovery.

  • Twenty years ago, some people viewed computational fluid dynamics (CFD) as more of a sales tool than an engineering tool. Since then, it has proven its validity and its value as a tool for analyzing wastewater aeration and process mixing performance. Here are some insights on the technology, its specific use in wastewater basins, and inside tips on how to apply it to greatest advantage across a variety of processes.

  • Arcadis was commissioned to support this client’s long-term resilience investment strategy by using catchment-level hydraulic modeling and holistic risk assessment. The work assessed flood risks arising from extreme weather events.

  • Bristol Water provides clean, fresh drinking water every day to approximately 1.2 million people in the city of Bristol and surrounding areas in the west of England. As part of taking inventory on ways to improve its service, Bristol Water undertook its largest ever program of customer engagement. This invited customers to participate in the decisions Bristol Water makes about the future of their water services.

  • In 2001, when KLa designed its first aeration system, the two most prevalent biological wastewater treatment options were sequencing batch reactor (SBR) and conventional activated sludge (CAS) processes. Today’s options are much broader. Yet, cost-efficient aeration still remains an underlying challenge. This Q&A article provides a look at how the industry arrived at today’s opportunities and where it’s headed for the future.

  • Keeping pace with changing industrial wastewater treatment demands can raise multiple issues of oxygen demand, capital cost, and operating expense, often without the flexibility of taking basins out of service to upgrade to new levels of performance. Fortunately, there are alternatives for delivering more oxygen to treat more water, handling higher biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), or upgrading inefficient equipment — all without breaking the bank.

  • When the aging water distribution infrastructure in Araguaína, Brazil, (pop. 183,000) reached a level of 47 percent non-revenue-water (NRW) loss, the contracted utility operator knew that something needed to change. With such a massive challenge, they concluded that their best approach was to divide and conquer. Here is the story of how they are breaking their problems down to size with a solution that is on pace to pay for itself.

  • Critical infrastructure deserves real-time monitoring. With a service territory of 2,000 square miles in the center of southwestern Pennsylvania, the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County (MAWC) directly serves 130,000 customers with water and wastewater services. MAWC also serves other water utilities, heavy industry companies, and a power production plant. With a fleet of over 300 vehicles and 2,500 miles of underground assets, MAWC keeps track of its real-time data using Esri's ArcGIS® GeoEvent™ Server.

  • As a leader in the water industry, Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources (GCDWR) aims to provide superior water services at an excellent value. The multi-award-winning utility has been recognized both statewide and nationally for excellence in water production, wastewater treatment, infrastructure development, and customer satisfaction. GCDWR operates and maintains two water production facilities; three water reclamation facilities; more than 200 pump stations; and nearly 8,000 miles of water, sewer, and stormwater pipes that provide essential services to more than 900,000 people each day.

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has rewritten the way businesses and organizations operate and serve their customers, and utility districts are no exception. White House Utility District (WHUD), Tennessee's largest water and wastewater provider in terms of geographic area served, is a case in point.
