City Of Durham, NC Improves Water Quality With 3-In-1 Hydro-Guard® Remote Pressure Monitoring, Sampling And Flushing Stations
The City of Durham is committed to providing safe drinking water to a service population of more than 289,000. The City’s Department of Water Management (DWM) ensures the delivery of water to approximately 99,000 service connections through 1,400 miles of watermains. Lake Michie and Little River Reservoir are the two sources that deliver raw water to the City’s two treatment plants, using a combination of gravity flow and electric and hydro-powered pumping systems. Together, these plants have the combined treatment capacity of 64 million gallons per day (MGD) with an average demand is 28 MGD.
The Inevitability Of Digitalization
The digital transformation of the water sector may trail other industries, but it will happen nonetheless — bringing with it tremendous benefits and opportunities.
Digitizing The Water Sector: An Opportunity To Improve Water Quality
The greatest threats to our water supply can be overcome through the application of digital technologies, but widespread implementation remains a hurdle.
10 LuminUltra Milestones Of 2020
Like many companies, when we launched our 2020 strategic plan in January, we had no idea what the year would hold. We will remember 2020 not only as a year of unprecedented challenges, but of resilience and innovation.
Gwinnett County, GA, Improves Meter Program Through Science And Strategy
Gwinnett County is located 30 miles northeast of Atlanta. The County is investigating methods to improve its strategic program for water meters. These improvements include updated testing equipment, a wider selection of approved metering technologies, and increased employee training. The goal is to install the most appropriate meter for each specific use, and to enhance the county’s excellent customer service.
Instrumentation And Digital Transformation
Whether you call it Digital Transformation, Water 4.0, or Smart Water, the water industry as a whole is changing drastically in the way that it operates. If you ask a dozen people what these buzzwords mean, you will naturally get a dozen answers. It is because the Digital Transformation of the water industry is different for different people and for different operational and management aspects of what is done to produce water, distribute it to customers, collect it, treat it, and put it back to the environment.
Keeping Track Of Your Control Valve Information
Water production and distribution in the City of Redlands, California, is managed by the Municipal Utilities & Engineering Department and is supplied from two water supplies, Mill Creek and the Santa Anna River. Treatment is provided at two conventional water treatment plants, Tate WTP and Hinckley WTP, each capable of producing approximately 14 MGD. Water is then fed into 7 different pressure zones due to elevation changes through a series of pump stations.
The Value Of Wave Integration With PRVs
Distribution system water main breaks are a significant burden to communities and water systems not only due to disruption of water service to customers, but also due to significant economic burdens in the form of pipe replacement costs, excavation costs, and even insurance reimbursements. Read the full white paper to learn the KETOS Wave can be easily installed into existing PRVs to monitor the pressure and flow in the downstream side of the valve and proactively act in real-time as needed.
Utility Enhances Wireless Wastewater Monitoring With Trimble Telog Ru-35 Technology
Trimble Telog® technology helps Plainfield Area Regional Sewerage Authority (PARSA) become proactive to emerging problems.
Using IoT-Based Tank Level Monitoring For Volume Measurement
Level monitoring systems has successfully triumphed every implementation. Their deployments allow the users to measure the level of liquid stored in a container of any shape, size, orientation, or material. Powered with the advanced telemetric technology of Internet of Things, these systems measure liquid level without making any contact with the liquid and transmit the readings to a comprehensive platform suite.
