  • 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.

  • Remote Monitoring For Water Quality And Public Health

  • 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.

  • Defining Total Customer Engagement
    Defining Total Customer Engagement

    Total Customer Engagement is an amorphous concept that is difficult to define or quantify. Depending on the nature of a given business, engagement may be described using language such as touches, opens, responses, clicks, registrations, reach, shares, influence, views, or other nebulous terms. This language leaves organizations ill-equipped to define and measure the impact and benefits of communicating with customers in a wide range of situations.

    Water Is One Of The Few Issues To Unite Voters

    Unless you spent the last election cycle hiding under a rock (and no blame if you did), you are no doubt aware of the growing rift between the two major political parties of the United States. As reported in The Atlantic citing polling from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, those who identify as Democrats are becoming more liberal and those identifying as Republicans swing ever more conservative.

    B&V Talks CBP3s — Community-Based Public-Private Partnerships — For Stormwater Management

    Andrew Smith is the Watershed, Stormwater, and Flood Management Practice Lead at Black & Veatch, and was therefore a timely interview subject in the wake of hurricanes and storm damage still fresh in the minds of attendees at WEFTEC 2017. Creating an effective stormwater management program, the key to handling such events, is a large and multifaceted undertaking. The best solution for many could be a community-based public-private partnership (CBP3), which is described by Smith in this Water Talk conversation.

LATEST INSIGHTS ON CONSUMER OUTREACH

  • 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.

    Pulling Together: Public-Private Partnerships Poised To Push California Water Efficiency

    California is home to some of the world’s most creative minds, top universities, productive farmland, groundbreaking industries — and one of the most epic droughts. The state has endured five years of drained reservoirs and groundwater reserves tapped so aggressively that the land subsidence caused by pumping has been literally seen from space. This indicates in no uncertain terms that it’s time to get all hands on deck. Private companies, universities, irrigation and drainage districts, municipalities — it’s time to pull together into public-private partnerships to address water challenges that face California and so many other regions of the world.

    Over the past two years, no groundwater issue has perhaps received as much community focus and attention as polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances like PFOA and PFOS, often referred to as perflourinated compounds (PFCs). The U.S. EPA issued a health advisory, limiting the amount of these compounds to 70 parts/trillion which kicked off a nationwide evaluation of local water sources.
