Recent market research forecasts $6.3 billion of investment in AI for water management by 2030 in the U.S. and Canada alone — but why? Early adopters of AI-optimization tools are improving efficiency and lowering operational costs — all while keeping compliant with local regulations. Join James Legue, Director of AI Products at Innovyze, to find out the key factors driving the transformative impact AI is having on water operations across multiple industries.

The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) pays about $20M for its water pumping energy costs. To evaluate real‐time pumping efficiency, GLWA conducted an efficiency evaluation utilizing records from various digital meters installed at its water-pumping stations. This webinar will discuss the development of the program, including the use of SCADA and OSIsoft’s PI System to automate pump flow and efficiency calculations, and how the information was used to identify oversized or inefficient pumps, correct to the preferred operating range and best efficiency point, and realize substantial energy savings for GLWA.

This presentation will identify key value drivers for water utilities to address during business case development to justify projects with internal and external stakeholders. It will discuss best practices during procurement to minimize risk pricing and risk exposure during the 20-year contract, and will identify use-cases of interval data to further unlock both customer and operational benefits.

Peter Evans, Regional Director with StormwateRx LLC introduces Clara Filter, StormwateRx’s newest stormwater pollutant removal system for high-rate sediment (TSS) removal.

Water savings starts with accurate measurement. Join ABB experts as they discuss how easily implemented smart technologies drive greater levels of efficiency in water processes. Digitalizing your operations doesn’t have to be complicated. Work the way you want to work.

Traditionally, horizontal split case pumps and conventional vertical inline pumps have been used in applications with a wide range of flows and heads. These applications can be challenging for single-stage pumps when the pumping head is high enough that the pump must operate to the left of the best efficiency point on the curve — and often perilously close to shut-off head. Additionally, maintenance on these pumps can be complex and time-consuming.

The City of Taylorville, IL, needed to diversify their drinking water sources by bringing unused groundwater wells online to supplement their surface water supply. Unfortunately, their groundwater contained nitrate levels that exceeded regulatory limits and would require treatment.

Your water treatment facilities and water distribution networks are a complex set of interlocking steps that should include making the measurement, protecting that information in the cloud, and then putting it in the hands of key personnel, regardless of where they may be. This is the challenge of the 21st century — extracting needed information and getting it to the right people. This is where digitalization comes in.

With public health and safety to protect, relationships with regulators and elected officials to maintain, threats from climate change to account for, construction schedules shifting, and more that water providers contend with every day, it is understandable that communicating the value of what the sector does is not always top of mind. But effective communications and storytelling is critical to the success of any water provider.

This webinar will provide wastewater personnel the basics about water and wastewater membrane treatment, encompassing reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, microfiltration, and ultrafiltration. The key features of each process will be discussed along with application examples. Membranes will be expanding into wastewater treatment, and this webinar can serve as an introduction to the technologies available in current facilities and future applications.

Prior to 2014, the City of Edina selected portions of the pipe network for replacement based on network age and repair history. Edina proactively searched for solutions that would lead to a more targeted pipe replacement program and support coordination with other infrastructure investments like road reconstruction.
