  • Reducing Water Waste And Increasing Reuse With Remote Monitoring And Control

    Now more than ever, it’s time to explore circular water management solutions to prevent loss of the world’s most valuable resource.

  • COVID-19 And Wastewater Utilities

    Today, the world is facing unprecedented circumstances that are affecting every single sector and the water service is no exception. Although there is still more research to be done, this article has collected the currently available information to highlight how wastewater utilities have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, this article will attempt to look at the outbreak’s impact on utilities, the potential hazards, and the predominant solution.

  • Digital Transformation In Water: 9 Success Factors

    Climate change, urban population growth, aging infrastructure, budgetary constraints, and increasing regulatory pressure are some of the many challenges U.S. water utilities face. Utility executives are forced to address them in creative and cost-effective ways.

  • Chicopee Rural Water District Measures With Electronic Water Meters

    Chicopee Rural Water District has a rich history in the rural water community; Chicopee is the first-ever rural water district in the state of Kansas and second in the nation. In 2015, the water district decided to update their system by installing electronic water meters. “We talked extensively with three different smart water meter suppliers,” says Jerry Lomshek, Vice Chair of the board and district bookkeeper for Chicopee Rural Water District. “Together with our operator, Ed Thompson, we recommended the Kamstrup meter reading system to the board, and they agreed and approved it.” With the accurate flowIQ® water meter, it eliminates the need for re-reads.

  • City Of Magnolia Improves Meter Reading Process

    The City of Magnolia is a historical railroad town with the charm of small town USA. Its growing economy allows and promotes community improvements. When it came to the city’s water meters, the water department had a challenge that often comes along with older cities–meters that are in hard-to-reach or difficult-to-find locations.

  • Abbottstown Retrofitted A Flow-Through System With An AquaSBR® System To Meet Stringent Effluent Requirements

    The Abbottstown-Paradise Joint Sewer Authority was incorporated in 1973 and utilized a continuous flow activated sludge system with an average daily design flow of 0.21 MGD. At that time the plant was only required to reduce total suspended solids (TSS) and effuent ammonia to required levels to serve the area population of about 2000. Due to urban growth and increased storm flow runoffs, the plant was in need of an expansion and upgrade by the late 1990s. 

  • Applying Data-as-a-Service To The Wastewater Sector

    A major concern with real-time monitoring networks is the accuracy and reliability of data. In 2017, the Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN) surveyed 23 global water utilities about their Big Data management practices as part of a Water Research Foundation (WRF) study, including their barriers to adoption.

  • Gain Control Of Your Data

    For those entrusted with the responsibility of supplying vital water and wastewater services to their communities, it is both the worst and the best of times. It is the worst of times because water challenges are intensifying, stressing infrastructure that is already badly in need of renewal. Around the world, the water system’s vital signs, including leakage, main breaks, and wastewater overflows, reflect a system in urgent need of investment. Yet we cannot simply spend our way out of these challenges, regardless of how they are financed, without intensifying the burden on struggling ratepayers.

  • Advanced Analytics And Situational Awareness For Manufacturing Data

    Advanced analytics is a key innovation for digital transformation. While many industrial companies are rolling out pilots and enterprise analytics projects, it is important for users to understand the features and capabilities of the analytics offerings.

  • Achieving Water Authority Compliance With Automated Wastewater Treatment

    Automated wastewater treatment systems help manufacturers remain in compliance with EPA and local standards, while significantly reducing the cost of treatment, labor, and disposal.
