• In the Beginning, there was water. The first couple of lines of the Bible describe a newly formed earth covered in water, a swirling deep. From there, the rest of creation emerged.

  • 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. This new program puts stormwater to use that could not otherwise be used, taking less water from the Tualatin River.

  • Dating back to colonial times, Native Tribes in North America have often watched wide-ranging access to the land and water of their forefathers diminish over time. Although various policies and settlements have attempted to restore some of those opportunities, the bottom line is that many of today’s tribal territories do not enjoy the same water quality as adjacent states or communities. A new U.S. EPA action plan is designed to narrow that gap.

  • 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.

  • Manufacturers around the world are being forced to do more with less, as they grapple with finite resources and numerous challenges. The chemical process industries (CPI) in particular are facing challenges as they look to increase productivity. Digitalization and automation are game changers that can help to overcome obstacles, but they come with their own set of challenges.

  • Water utilities have become America’s unexpected source of front-page news, enduring multiple ‘once-in-a-century’ events in recent years. Droughts, pollution, unprecedented cold, flooding, and storms all take their toll on our infrastructure and push services we take for granted to the brink.

  • Initial advice for utilities considering privatization, public-private partnerships, and consolidation

  • While the water industry continues to embrace the benefits of automation and digitalization, it is equally important to be cognizant and resistant to the inherent risks.


  • North Las Vegas Puts Advanced Wastewater Treatment To Work

    The North Las Vegas Water Reclamation Facility treats an average of 17 million gallons a day (MGD) of wastewater through an advanced nutrient removal process with subsequent membrane filtration. The utility’s process control enables treatment effluent exceeding typical environmental standards and allows discharge to Lake Meade, where it subsequently is withdrawn and fully treated by other facilities for drinking water distribution.

  • Xylem Treatment System Optimization: Leveraging The Power Of Artificial Intelligence

    Optimizing the treatment plant to give operations the ability to leverage data to improve processes and reduce energy is now more important than ever. Xylem Treatment System Optimization helps utilities to improve treatment plant efficiencies to save energy, minimize chemical inputs and deliver better water and results at optimized cost and effort. Deployed as a real-time decision support system, Xylem Treatment System Optimization uses a real-time digital twin to simulate the most complex biological and chemical processes taking place within sewage treatment facilities. This provides utilities with data-driven suggestions for optimizing plant performance — without new infrastructure.

  • 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.

  • Xylem Asset Performance Optimization: Comprehensive Asset Risk Analytics And Planning Support Services

    When it comes to managing pipeline assets, your responsibilities are as wide-ranging as your network. Traditionally, asset management efforts would be primarily focused on maintaining the quality and efficiency of the water network with an age-based approach to pipeline repair and replacement.

  • optimyze™: Condition Monitoring To Optimize Your Bottom Line

    Using predictive analysis, optimyze identifies potential problems with your equipment before they occur, to help you manage system reliability and maintenance. Information is monitored, collected, stored and analyzed in the optimyze sensor. This allows you to understand the current health and historical trends of your assets, create maintenance reminders and generate detailed reports. As a result, you can perform preventative maintenance before issues become critical to uptime.


Due to the Revised Lead and Copper Rule and the (eventual?) passing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), utilities are now required and incentivized to better assess and replace lead pipes within their networks.
