SCADA & AUTOMATION RESOURCES

  • Bristol Water has provided clean, fresh drinking water to its customers since 1846. For almost 200 years, the health and environment of their communities has remained at the forefront of their values. Today, Bristol Water supplies over 1 million people within Bristol, England, across an area of almost 2,400 square kilometers. Bristol Water’s operations include the abstraction, storage, treatment, and distribution of water to homes, businesses, and other premises. They focus exclusively on water, not wastewater.  

  • Two wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) in Texas needed to ensure their facilities could maintain water flows running at their current capacity and determine whether or not improvements were required. In order to do this the plant managers needed to find a solution that would provide accurate and informative results, hydraulic modelling assessments.

  • Recently, Innovyze held a virtual event with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to discuss the barriers faced by water utilities in achieving digital transformation. The event also featured the launch of Info360, the latest Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform that supports real-world lifecycle management using the power of the cloud. As Water Online noted, this was one of the largest attended webinars they had seen in years.

  • Everyone I know in the water industry understands, we are here to serve the public. We talk a lot about how technology is transforming the way we plan and operate smart water, wastewater and stormwater networks. But we should go beyond and consider the ways in which the public could benefit from the use of dynamic digital twins. After all, they are paying for the flood-protection, sewage, and water network the water industry services. They should expect benefits from the innovation they fund – it shouldn’t just be “business as usual.”

  • It appears to me Asset Management and Stormwater are two topics that rarely come together and yet seems like they would be such a natural fit. The ISO 55000 Asset Management Standard applies to both intangible and tangible assets, so why not natural and built? Can we apply Asset Management principles to Mother Nature? Yes, we can. Through Green Infrastructure.

  • Water Affordability and Equity issues have been around for many years, if not decades. Lead service lines were state-of-the-art water engineering in the 1920’s, yet 95 years later the relationship of public health and public infrastructure catapulted to the top with the Flint, MI crisis in disadvantaged communities.

  • For over 30 years, Innovyze has helped water-distribution, stormwater and wastewater professionals achieve success with hydraulic modeling projects. In that time, we have seen the same mistakes made over and over. We have designed and built the InfoWorks ICM and WSPro Workgroup architecture so that you don’t have to make those same mistakes, again.

  • Water and Wastewater service providers across the US identify that their number one resilience issue is coping with their aging and decaying water and wastewater infrastructure. Within the backdrop of a growing investment gap, greater demand for their services and increasing regulatory compliance, a main concern is how to extend the lifetime of assets through risk-based prioritized operational and capital investment planning.

  • Water distribution system infrastructures are designed to deliver drinking water to end users, but utilities are continually faced with distinct challenges to fulfill this fundamental objective. For example, these utilities improve customer service by delivering water with high pressure, but on the other hand, water conservation policies push them to minimize water distribution leaks. For this reason, water utilities invest heavily in SCADA and telemetry technologies to support operational decisions. However, unlocking historical operational data and fusing it with other data (such as billing information from AMR/AMI networks) to generate actionable insights has proven difficult.

  • The old adage about genius being 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration originated in the late 19th century, but in today’s world of wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) design, engineers are still haunted by onerous design processes and iterations. All that could soon change thanks to a design generator software that automates much of the ‘perspiration’ in favor of leaving more time for ‘inspiration.’ Here’s how it works.
