• With increasing and urbanizing population, extreme weather events happening with greater frequency, aging infrastructure and work forces, more demanding customers, and significant revenue constraints, it is becoming increasingly difficult for water utilities to ensure that supply consistently meets demand.

  • Danger isn’t always obvious. Often the worst threats are the ones that go undetected— until they strike. 

  • Kansas City, Missouri (KCMO) was updating their Overflow Control Plan as part of a federal consent decree with the aim to reduce the frequency and severity of combined and sanitary system overflows during wet weather events. KCMO needed to quickly find the most efficient, cost-effective way to reach compliance and serve their 478 000 residents. They partnered with Optimatics and EmNet leveraging the Optimizer platform to identify the best combinations of conveyance, in line storage, and I/I reduction strategies to achieve their program goals at the lowest lifecycle cost.

  • Situated on the banks of the Brahmaputra River, Dibrugarh is a major city in Assam, India, and an emerging industrial, educational, and health care center in the region. Despite its riverside location, the town has no centralized potable water supply facility for the 25,391 households, home to 167,733 people. Given the unreliable, inequitable water supply and highly compromised water quality, the government initiated a water infrastructure project to ensure adequate distribution and 24x7 access to clean drinking water. The USD 25 million initiative includes engineering, procurement, and construction of a 220-kilometer integrated water network. DTK Hydronet was hired as the engineering consultant and faced coordination and engineering challenges while working with the contractor and utility, as well as addressing non-revenue water (NRW) concerns.

  • Understanding your detection needs when it comes to free cyanide can help you choose the most suitable detection method.

  • Arcadis was commissioned to support this client’s long-term resilience investment strategy by using catchment-level hydraulic modeling and holistic risk assessment. The work assessed flood risks arising from extreme weather events.

  • McCrometer, and channel partner Tecnova, were able to help meet the demands of this water distribution customer by identifying and supplying the necessary meter to satisfy their specific needs.

  • 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. 

  • For the second straight year, the Water Environment Federation Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) came to McCormick Place in Chicago, returning also to the city which launched WEFTEC 90 years ago. As always, it was a showcase of the latest technologies and ideas available in the water/wastewater industry, but each show also has its own "feel" that reflects the times.

  • Wastewater is suddenly an important source for data and insight for solving problems beyond the scope of traditional water management.
