• Many of the world’s poorest people live in regions most susceptible to flooding. The situation is expected to worsen in the next few decades, especially for many of the world’s largest cities in lower and middle income countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. These cities must instead become truly “resilient societies” — before it is too late.

  • In 1992, Joseph Vietri, then a coastal engineer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, was walking with a colleague and a coastal researcher around Westhampton Beach, a barrier island located on the south shore of Long Island, New York.

  • Climate change is raising flood risks in neighborhoods across the U.S. much faster than many people realize. Over the next three decades, the cost of flood damage is on pace to rise 26 percent due to climate change alone, an analysis of our new flood risk maps shows.

  • For the city of Beaverton, Oregon, the “Beaverton Purple Pipe” is a new water system that routes treated stormwater to irrigate green spaces like parks, school grounds and residential yards.

  • The Steele Brook Streambank Stabilization Project is one of many the Army Corps of Engineers has performed under its New York City Watershed Environmental Assistance Program. With the restoration of Steele Brook’s banks, there is less flooding and improved water quality, and it’s giving new life to Reservoir Park.

  • The UK has around 1,500 individual river systems, totaling over 200,000 km, or roughly 124,274 miles, in length. It’s common for sewers here to accept both untreated human waste and rain water in a combined system. Water and sewerage companies are permitted to release this wastewater into inland and coastal waters without treatment under exceptional conditions, such as following heavy rainfall.

  • Effectively managing hundreds of thousands of miles of sewer network is not an enviable task. And with ever changing industry regulation, stricter statutory targets, additional compliance, and a growing abundance of technology, that task could easily be regarded as insurmountable. How can you ever know exactly what’s going on throughout your entire network? It’s impossible. Or is it?

  • Exactly 16 years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans on its way toward becoming the most expensive natural disaster in U.S. history, Hurricane Ida slammed into the Gulf Coast with great force. The storm would eventually move north, leaving a trail of destruction across much of the Eastern Seaboard. Nearly a month later, many who were in its path are still feeling the effects.

  • The House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee is moving forward with a measure that would invest $3.7 billion in critical wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. These resources will help communities across the country struggling with sewage spills, inadequate sanitation, and destructive urban flooding.

  • Wildfires burn millions of acres of land every year, leaving changed landscapes that are prone to flooding. Less well known is that these already vulnerable regions can also intensify and in some cases initiate thunderstorms.


  • Instruments For Environmental Applications

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality.

  • Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization: A Smart, End-To-End Wastewater Platform

    Sewer overflows are a growing problem for cities around the world. With more severe rain events expected due to climate change, solving this critical water challenge is more important than ever. Doing so affordably is even harder. Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization is a real-time decision support system (RT-DSS) utilizing smart sewer technology that gives utilities a better view into the performance and capacity utilization of their existing sewer system assets. This allows utility leaders to optimize levels of service while saving money, reducing risk and protecting the environment.

  • Series 1100HV Restraint For Existing Push-On Joints

    The Series 1100HV is a restraint made for existing push-on joints on large diameter C900 PVC pipes. It is built from ASTM A536 ductile iron and has a MEGA-BOND® Restraint Coating System. 

  • MEGA-STOP® Series 5000 Bell Protection System

    The MEGA-STOP® is a safe and economical “over-insertion” solution. With it, you can properly and quickly assemble pipe joints each and every time.

  • DWV FLEX-TEND® Flexible Expansion Joint For Gravity Drain Pipelines

    For use with gravity drain pipelines, the DWV FLEX-TEND is a flexible expansion joint can be used in drain, waste, and vent non-pressurized piping.
