  • Reduce Electricity Costs By Putting More Energy Into Data Analysis
    Reduce Electricity Costs By Putting More Energy Into Data Analysis

    With electricity consumption being a primary operating cost in water treatment and wastewater treatment, steps taken to optimize energy use are critical. Saving energy is more than just an on/off decision. Monitoring and managing energy use — from analyzing pump curves, to reducing non-revenue-water leaks, to scheduling operations around premium-rate windows — is essential. Fortunately, the payback potential can be impressive.

  • The Drive Towards Digital Transformation
    The Drive Towards Digital Transformation

    It seems that everywhere that you go in the water industry at the current time, somebody is talking about digital transformation…or if we go back five minutes, it was Water 4.0…and 10 minutes ago (it seems), it was “smart water.” These are all very well used buzzwords that the industry is destined to think about for a short-term and then promptly forget about. In reality, though, we as an industry have been hit by a number of different concepts for a number of different technological aspects for a good number of years now. For almost as long we have had a term for all of this — “widgets.”

  • Managing Data To Maximize Asset Maintenance Efficiency
    Managing Data To Maximize Asset Maintenance Efficiency

    Although an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, all the money spent on regularly scheduled maintenance can add up to a ton of waste — and still result in unplanned downtime — if asset managers can’t reasonably differentiate between which equipment truly needs attention and which doesn’t. Fortunately, data-centric analytics derived from physical performance in real time can make that distinction. Here’s how.

  • Smart Water Networks And The Choices Ahead
    Smart Water Networks And The Choices Ahead

    Many water utilities continue to evaluate the costs and benefits of investing in smart metering to reduce operational costs and help recover revenue from water losses. Smart metering can also provide customers with more granular consumption data to help them protect their property from water damage and better manage their water expenses.

  • Water Loss Control — From Audit To Action
    Water Loss Control — From Audit To Action

    Non-revenue water loss is a problem from coast to coast, but California has taken a lead and set an example — with resources from AWWA — by adopting and sharing best practices to help solve the issue.
