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

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.”
