  • Hydra-Stop’s Insta-Valve 20-24 Delivers Performance Under Pressure

    Hydra-Stop’s solution kept the water running in a highly active and populated area while repairs were made.

  • Centuries Old Infrastructure Gains Control With The Insta Valve 250

    Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed the city to gain control of their infrastructure where no valves were present.

  • The Insta-Valve 250 Puts A Stop To A Month-Long Water Loss Of 150 GPM

    Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed a targeted shutdown to stop a massive and costly water loss.

  • Why Material Selection Matters

    The Tri-County Water Authority (TCWA) was formed in 1991 as a not-for-profit water utility serving portions of Jackson, Cass and Bates counties, Missouri. When the system was first established, about half of the pipe installed were ductile iron and half were plastic PVC. Today, the authority’s 120 miles of pipe are approximately 75% ductile iron and 25% plastic PVC.

  • AMERICAN® Products Support Paulding County’s 20-Year Effort To Ensure Safe, Sustainable Drinking Water

    More than 13 miles of AMERICAN ductile iron pipe and nearly two dozen AMERICAN Flow Control® resilient wedge gate valves with Flex-Ring® ends are playing an important role in providing safe, affordable drinking water to fast-growing Paulding County, Georgia, one of the only counties in the metro-Atlanta region without an independent water supply.

  • Preparing To Tackle The Hydra Of LCR Revisions

    As a journalist serving the water industry — but not yet a seasoned technical veteran — I attended a recent Lead In Drinking Water Forum sponsored by AWWA NJ to learn about the challenges of complying with the proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR). What I heard impressed upon me the technical, administrative, and logistical challenges of delivering safe, lead-free drinking water all the way to user taps. Here are my takeaways.

  • Denver Water Gets Approval To Fast-Track Removal Of Lead Service Lines

    In December, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment approved Denver Water’s proposal to develop and successfully launch its Lead Reduction Program over the next three years. The program will ultimately take 15 years to complete.

  • How To Get The Right Rental Equipment To Your Worksite

    For organizations involved in water, wastewater and stormwater projects, renting equipment can be a pivotal part of any endeavor. If an essential piece of equipment is not available, that can result in idle workers and a project falling off schedule and extending beyond budget.

  • TAG Teams Talk Tech

    Five wastewater technology vendors pitched their emerging technologies to the Prince William County Service Authority (SA) and various other regional public and private utilities on November 20 at the SA’s Durward E. Grubbs Jr. Environmental Center in Woodbridge, VA.

  • The Drive Towards Digital Transformation

    It seems that everywhere that you go in the water industry at the current time, somebody is talking about digital transformation…or if we go back five minutes, it was Water 4.0…and 10 minutes ago (it seems), it was “smart water.” These are all very well used buzzwords that the industry is destined to think about for a short-term and then promptly forget about. In reality, though, we as an industry have been hit by a number of different concepts for a number of different technological aspects for a good number of years now. For almost as long we have had a term for all of this — “widgets.”
