DRINKING WATER DISTRIBUTION RESOURCES
Using IoT-Based Tank Level Monitoring For Volume Measurement
Level monitoring systems has successfully triumphed every implementation. Their deployments allow the users to measure the level of liquid stored in a container of any shape, size, orientation, or material. Powered with the advanced telemetric technology of Internet of Things, these systems measure liquid level without making any contact with the liquid and transmit the readings to a comprehensive platform suite.
WWEMA Window: Protecting Drinking Water Pipelines With Inflow Prevention
A significant risk to public health exists when a drinking water distribution system is exposed to the inflow of contaminated water or toxins at air valve locations along the drinking water pipeline. While public drinking water systems are routinely protected from contamination at the points of service with backflow prevention devices, little attention has been paid to air valve and vent inflow locations in water pipeline vaults located throughout distribution systems.
Key Insights From The Leading Global Smart Water Event
The SWAN 10th Annual Conference welcomed 400+ attendees from 32 countries, including a record 64 unique utilities. Hosted virtually by SWAN, the Smart Water Networks Forum, this was the largest global smart water and wastewater event. On the 22nd and 23rd of July 2020, SWAN member Ovarro led two expert interactive roundtable sessions on “Leak detection at your desktop” and “How will you keep the water flowing in challenging times?” Below, we interviewed Ovarro about key takeaways from their discussions and how these insights can benefit the water sector.
Reducing Costs For Water Distribution System Maintenance
Maintaining a water distribution system requires constant management. From leaking pipes to broken valves or even distribution expansion, there always seems to be something to do and you will never be short of work. But, are “old” ways of performing maintenance and repair creating unnecessary costs?
Insta-Valve 20-24 Provides Needed Control For Infrastructure Expansion
Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed targeted control to connect a million-gallon water tank to a new water treatment center.
FERC Gives Final Federal Nod Of Approval For Gross Reservoir Expansion
Project to raise dam will improve water reliability for more than 1.5 million people while benefiting the environment.
Water Authority Deploys More Efficient Solution For Now And The Future
Following the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act announced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2013, Water Authority of Dickson County decided to look beyond its current metering manufacturing company and evaluate other solutions in the market. Leaders from WADC began conversations with their counterparts across Tennessee to find new, longer-lasting and more accurate meters, as well as a solution that would help WADC more strategically detect leaks and efficiently manage its time.
City Of Auburndale Leading The Way With Smart Water Technologies
Located in central Florida, the City of Auburndale is a thriving and steadily growing community that boasts great spaces to live, work and play. With more than a dozen lakes and ponds within its borders, a crucial component of the city’s appeal can be found in its abundance of water. In 2016, the Public Utilities Department saw a need to upgrade aging infrastructure across its water system. The city’s water meters and endpoints had provided many years of reliable service, and it was an opportune time to investigate how more advanced technology could benefit the utility and its customers.
Aging Water System Transformed Into Leading Smart Water Solution
When water utility managers in Bedford, Texas, determined it was time to replace the city’s aging water infrastructure, they anticipated it would be a long and potentially challenging undertaking. However, by selecting a manufacturing partner with a comprehensive solutions portfolio, as well as turnkey distribution and installation partners, the Public Works Department achieved a successful and completely transformative infrastructure replacement project in less than two years. The project, which began in 2017, helped make Bedford one of the first cities in the country to deploy a smart water solution utilizing a secure LTE cellular network.
AWWA Lights The Way
It’s been a helluva year, and we’re barely halfway through it.
