Green Infrastructure: Gateway Into Sustainability For Cities
Cities across the nation face severe challenges that pose a risk to the health of communities and their rivers. Unlike natural environments, the vast quantity of asphalt surfaces found in urban areas prevents rainfall from infiltrating into the ground. Creating green spaces within a city landscape allows rain easy access into the ground, decreasing the amount of stormwater runoff that enters our water sources.
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.
EPA Partners With Cincy’s Cooper Creek Collaborative To Improve Water Quality
As cities grow, meadows and forests become buildings and pavement — a change that can impact our streams, rivers, lakes, and groundwater, also known as urban hydrologic alteration. Most buildings and pavement are impervious surfaces, which means they cannot absorb rainwater. As water journeys across these surfaces to collection points, it can collect various contaminants, such as fertilizer, bacteria, motor oil, lawn chemicals, and pet waste.

Xylem Provides Pumping & Control Equipment To Reduce Force Main Pressure
HRSD, the regional wastewater treatment utility that serves 18 cities and counties in southeast Virginia, had been experiencing high-pressures in their Williamsburg area force main network during wet weather events. These high pressure events caused operational trouble and, on occasion, resulted in SSOs in the collection system.
Historic Rains In Memphis Lead To Monumental Emergency Bypass
Record rainfalls in Memphis, TN eroded the soil supporting a 96-inch sanitary sewer main, causing the line to fail. With nearly 40 million gallons per day (MGD) of raw sewage escaping into Cypress Creek, less than a mile from McKellar Lake and the Mississippi River, an emergency bypass was needed fast to facilitate the repair work on the 96” sewer main.
