WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT RESOURCES

  • Since March of last year, when the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, the U.S. has recorded over 33.7 million cases of infection and surpassed 600,000 deaths due to the highly transmissible viral disease.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • After spending decades and millions of dollars rehabilitating sewer pipes across its service area, a large coastal utility embarked on a pilot pipe condition assessment program for 25,000 linear feet in areas prone to high unwanted infiltration rates.

  • Hydroinformatics offers a fresh perspective that is enabling communities around the world to tackle ageold problems in new ways and with a bigger toolset.

  • With SCADA and an upgraded remote alarm notification system, North Port Utilities in Florida can keep ‘eyes’ on operations even when workers are off — out of sight but never out of touch.

  • The City of Orlando Streets and Stormwater Division is responsible for maintaining and improving drainage facilities to prevent flooding and ensure all receiving water bodies meet state and federal water quality standards. They oversee upwards of 100 lakes within the City and approximately 147 drainage wells with 70 monitoring stations for lakes and waterways, and have 23 rainfall stations collecting data by telemetry over a cellular network. The Streets and Stormwater Division keeps two million people safe from flooding during heavy summer rainfalls and periodic tropical events. 

  • Within the São Paulo metropolitan area, the city of Diadema in Brazil comprises 400,000 residents. Supplying water to 28.8 million people and treating and collecting sewage for 23.2 million people, Sabesp – Companhia de Saneamento Básico do Estado de São Paulo provides water and collects and treats sewage for 366 cities in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

  • Águas do Porto (AdP) is responsible for managing the entire urban water cycle of the city of Porto, Portugal, including its water supply, wastewater drainage and treatment, stormwater drainage, surface waters, and coastal water quality. AdP is one of the largest water companies in Portugal with more than 157,000 customers, serving approximately 500,000 people. The utility delivers an average of 49,450 cubic meters of water daily and collects approximately the same amount for treatment. The system includes 558 kilometers of wastewater sewers, 660 kilometers of stormwater drainage pipes, 66 kilometers of streams, and 3.4 kilometers of ocean coast, half of which are used as beaches.
