WASTEWATER

  • How Sludge-To-Energy Technology Is Boosting Water Resilience And Slashing Emissions For Cities

    Growing cities are generating higher volumes of wastewater and putting a strain on clean water supplies, calling for solutions that extract value from “waste” and ensure the sustainability of resources — with the added bonus, or imperative, of protecting the environment.

  • The Coming Expansion Of Energy Management For Utilities

    With so much demand on operating budgets, water and wastewater utility dollars must be spent — or conserved — wisely. Energy expenditure is a prime savings opportunity, but how do you pull it off successfully? Here are some factors, illuminated with a case study, to consider.

  • New IoT Web-Enabled CA900 Titration Analyzer Measures Alkalinity Automatically And Accurately

    Engineers and laboratory technicians responsible for maintaining alkaline and pH levels in balance to support a wide range of municipal and industrial water-based processes will find the new IoT web-enabled CA900 Titration Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) automates the process of routine alkalinity measurement with a simple, accurate and cost-effective approach.

  • Emerging Trends In Disinfection: Peracetic Acid

    As regulations on chlorinated disinfection byproducts and total residual chlorine become increasingly stringent, peracetic acid (PAA) is gaining in both interest and usage as a water reclamation disinfectant. Here’s what you need to know.

UTILITY MANAGEMENT

  • 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.

  • Climate-Ready Or Not?

    There are many positive changes on the horizon for the water and wastewater industry — new ideas and technologies that should enable more efficient and reliable operations, better water quality, and cost savings — but the forecast for the future is not all sunshine. There are some storm clouds brewing, literally, and water system managers need to prepare for the impact of severe rains.

  • How Utilities Can Put Safety Into The Hands Of Employees

    A recent initiative and underlying philosophy at American Water offers a lesson in what it looks like to empower utility employees to take charge of their own workplace safety.

  • A Shift In Strategy: Improving Global Water Management

    What effect will the push to improve inadequate water infrastructure have on the cost for supplies and services? A procurement research analyst predicts the near future.

  • Collaborative Approaches That Deliver Infrastructure Project Flexibility

    Utility and government agencies with limited resources for water infrastructure projects aren’t limited to traditional approaches; collaborative approaches such as progressive design-build delivery give owners more flexibility to optimize not only the price, but also the overall result and experience.

  • Delivering Assets And Strengthening Communities: A CBP3 Primer

    Local government can harness the power of community-based, public-private partnerships (CBP3s) to efficiently implement programs that encompass delivery of many unique assets — such as stormwater management programs that include green infrastructure. Can your community benefit from this delivery approach?

  • Utility Turns Over A New Leaf And Embraces Technology To Solve A Problem
    Utility Turns Over A New Leaf And Embraces Technology To Solve A Problem

    Genesee County, located in the middle of Michigan, offers families plenty of outdoor activities and a good way of life. The county’s water and wastewater utilities keep this way of life flowing. When Pump Station #8 kept clogging with debris and required countless maintenance calls to repair, the plant operator began to look for a solution.

    By installing the new Flygt Concertor Intelligent Pumping System with clog detection and pump cleaning functions, Genesee County’s Pump Station #8 is now a clog free operation. The Concertor, a smart wastewater pumping system that senses the operating conditions of its environment, adapts its performance in real time, and provides feedback to pumping station operators.
