  • California – A State Ready And Willing To Embrace Recycled Water
    California – A State Ready And Willing To Embrace Recycled Water

    Water has never been more in demand, and innovative approaches to improving water security have never been more imperative. As our global population grows exponentially, cities and towns expand to accommodate new inhabitants, providing the resources and services they need. Rapid agricultural and industrial development continues apace.

  • Trailblazing Efforts In Utility-Community Relations
    Trailblazing Efforts In Utility-Community Relations

    Traditionally (and unfortunately), contact between water providers and their customers has been mostly negative. Utilities might only share news on rate hikes, health advisories, service or traffic disruptions, etc., and typically only hear from customers who have a complaint. However, there are utilities with great reputations and relationships in the communities they serve; and the key to their success, besides providing excellent service, is a focus on positive communication.

  • Transitioning Social Media To A Key Component Of Your Public Relations Strategy
    Transitioning Social Media To A Key Component Of Your Public Relations Strategy

    As the utilities sector enters a new era, customer engagement is not just encouraged; it is expected. In 2018, social media has become a crucial part of digital communications strategies, making customers more informed and engaged than ever before. According to We Are Social, the number of social media users worldwide in 2018 is 3.196 billion.​

  • Advanced Metering Analytics: The Logical Evolution Of AMI
    Advanced Metering Analytics: The Logical Evolution Of AMI

    Just as different water utilities use different processes for turning raw source water into potable drinking water, so too do they take different routes to account for, and bill for, their output. Here is an overview of a cellular-based approach to collecting and leveraging data from water distribution operations that can achieve the greatest business advantage.

  • Empowering Consumers Is Key To Addressing Global Water Challenges
    Empowering Consumers Is Key To Addressing Global Water Challenges

    Consumers are taking advantage of technology to gain knowledge and demand rapid, inexpensive (sometimes free) delivery of goods. In supply chain terms, that’s called the last mile — getting the product to the consumer as quickly as possible.

  • Overcoming Smart Meter Fears: The Value Of Focusing Communication On AMI Benefits
    Overcoming Smart Meter Fears: The Value Of Focusing Communication On AMI Benefits

    The idea that ratepayers are afraid of what advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) may bring into their homes has made water utilities wary of implementing the technology. But are the fears justified? A new survey investigates the phenomenon and lights a path forward.

  • Crowdsourcing The First Water Management Database — With A Little Help From Companies
    Crowdsourcing The First Water Management Database — With A Little Help From Companies

    From Cape Town to Puerto Rico to Flint, MI, it's no surprise that drought, flooding, and water pollution can devastate communities, impacting lives and hindering economic growth. But the physical components of water supply — its abundance or scarcity, levels of pollution, and the competition over it — are only half of the equation when it comes to overall water security. What's just as important is how water is managed by public institutions, such as water utilities and local governments.

  • Micrometers: A Simple Solution To Water Scarcity
    Micrometers: A Simple Solution To Water Scarcity

    In the small community of Llimbe in Peru, water sources were running dry. The population had grown from 35 to 50 families, and some of the families were using more water than they actually needed. Because of this, if you lived higher on the hillside, you may only have water for an hour a day.

Duty Management Duty Management

Minimizing duties is one of the fastest and easiest ways to squeeze significant financial returns out of a company’s global supply chain. A dollar, yen, pound, or euro saved in duties goes straight to a company’s bottom line, which is what makes these programs so appealing. Duty minimization opportunities come in many forms, including preferential trade agreements, foreign trade zones and duty drawback. In order to take advantage of them, organizations must first determine eligibility. After determining eligibility, organizations must establish the appropriate procedures and documentation to qualify for them. Finally, organizations must track and administer the programs on an ongoing basis, for every qualifying product shipped.

  • A Model For Drinking Water Utilities

    There is a lot of talk in the water sector about the "value of water". We want the public to understand it — and pay for water's full cost, including collection, treatment, and delivery — but how many utilities really know the value of their own product? Would you ever think about branding it? Louisville Water Company did.

  • Leveraging Federal Funds To Aid Local Sewer Improvements

    Inflow and infiltration (I&I) are ongoing concerns for many wastewater utilities. Even with diligent maintenance of infrastructure, there are limits to what can be controlled. One example of that is leakage in the lateral service lines connecting the sewer utility’s main to sewer customer buildings. Here is how one municipality took advantage of federal and local funding to encourage nearly 2,500 customers to upgrade deficient connections in their lateral service lines — to the tune of more than $4 million.
