The environmental and financial impacts of a saltwater spill can be significant. Unfortunately, the Bakken region of western North Dakota and eastern Montana has seen its share of spills. One particular produced water gathering system is leading the way with advanced technology that focuses on leak prevention and detection, as well as streamlining operation costs and efficiencies.
The next big thing is here and it’s the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). With pundits waxing philosophical on this big breakthrough, it’s hard to cut through the noise and understand what the IIoT actually is and how it applies to individual plants. I offer the following as a definition. The IIoT means collecting, interpreting, and applying data to actively improve processes or operations. To understand how the IIoT applies to a wastewater treatment plant, look no further than your front yard.
Every day you hear things like “push your data into the cloud” or the newest functions of “cloud computing”. But what does this all mean? And what does it mean for utilities and facilities? Well, if you’re looking into Cloud SCADA, it can mean then difference between having to purchase and maintain software and hardware versus utilizing the internet and cloud computing platforms to serve as the framework for your SCADA system. That translates into time and money saved in the long run.
If you don’t know what a water hammer is, well, that’s a big part of the problem. It’s an all-too-frequent issue for water systems everywhere, striking in pipelines that are growing more susceptible to failure as they age.
Drinking water utilities have a lot on their plates. Aside from the inherent technical difficulty of providing a vital service, they have to maintain positive customer relations, contend with increasingly strained budgets, and run operations with as little stress to employees as possible.
Recently, ASCE released its Infrastructure Report Card, giving the nation’s drinking water infrastructure a D: in poor to fair condition and mostly below standard. Many water utilities and communities are doing the hard but necessary thing in finding the resources to upgrade their aging water infrastructure. And, for those in earthquake prone areas, hopefully considering an earthquake resistant system.
