Sheboygan Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility Prevents Energy Waste With Eaton’s Motor Insight
To ensure real-time monitoring of pump motor status at its five lift pumping stations, Sheboygan Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility, Sheboygan, WI, replaced its bi-metallic overload relays with Eaton’s Motor Insight™ overload and monitoring relays.
What Is A World-Class Utility, And How Does Yours Become One?
Water utilities are tasked with ensuring a sustainable and safe supply in addition to achieving business and service excellence goals. These goals are typically based on criteria that measure operational performance, meeting bond covenants, and customer satisfaction.
WSSC Achieves Over 60% Reduction In Hydraulic Plan Review for Water And Wastewater Systems
Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) Development Services Group reviews hydraulic plans for approximately 160 proposed development plans per year. This includes water and sewer system extensions as well as approximately 172 small-site utility plans (commercial private systems) that connect to the existing water and sewer network in two large Maryland counties.
Case Study Of Swan Turbiwell Quarterly Calibrated Unit Versus Quarterly Verified Unit
This paper presents the field data collected over a twelve month period at a municipal surface water treatment plant employing traditional clarification and filtration. The final effluent turbidity was monitored by the third party compliance turbidimeter, a Swan Turbiwell (Protocol Turbiwell) was calibrated quarterly just as the compliance turbidimeter, and a second Swan Turbiwell (Non-protocol Turbiwell) that was not calibrated.

VTScada Performs Monitoring And Control Of Aquifer Storage And Recovery In The Town Of Fountain Hills, AZ
Imagine a quiet ranch in the middle of Arizona, complete with cactus, tumbleweeds, and very little water. Now imagine twelve thousand people, a thriving suburban community, four golf courses with lush, green grass, and the same small amount of water
Smart Water Networks Will Endure When IoT Bubble Bursts
In its latest Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, leading analyst firm Gartner places the Internet of Things (IoT) at the top of the life cycle phase it calls the ‘Peak of Inflated Expectations’.
Enhancing Water System Reliability And Capacity For Boston Residents
Enhancing process reliability and increasing capacity are common issues facing water municipalities. On the one hand, community demographics are constantly evolving and water municipalities need to accommodate the impact to capacity requirements. At the same time, older systems that support pumping operations are not getting any younger and as control systems age, for example, it can become more time consuming to maintain equipment and more difficult to find replacement parts after systems have been in place for many years.
10 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Cone Meters (But Really Should Find Out)
Cone meters have been around for decades, since the mid-1980s. They are frequently confused with other technologies for a number of reasons.
Sending Your Wet Weather Problem Back To The Cloud(s)
Most of us don’t have to think about the vital infrastructure that supports our society. Water is delivered to our homes and businesses 24/7, and wastewater is efficiently and cleanly whisked away. The ability of our utilities to manage these services means we only take notice at times of inconvenience: water outages, sewer blockages, or stormwater overflows.
Digester Biogas Flow Measurement
The engineers at a municipal wastewater treatment utility were expanding their biogas digester system and were seeking an improvement over their existing, maintenance-intensive flow metering technology. They needed to measure the amount of gas contained within a gas bag as well as the flow rate of the gases traveling from the gas bag system into a co-generation power system.
