  • A New Platform For Safer Surface-Aerator Maintenance
    A New Platform For Safer Surface-Aerator Maintenance

    With so many different safety concerns — government-mandated or self-imposed — municipal and industrial wastewater treatment operators have a lot on their plates. Maintaining aerators used in open-basin treatment applications is just one source of those safety concerns. That is why a new approach to safeguarding worker well-being in the process of aerator maintenance activities is worth a closer look.

  • Global Perspective On Water In The Circular Economy
    Global Perspective On Water In The Circular Economy

    Isn’t it ironic that our beautiful blue planet, covered 70 percent with water, is struggling to meet citizens’ water needs? Yes, and the reasons are obvious. Out of the Earth’s total water, less than 3 percent is available as freshwater, and a portion of it is actually accessible. Uneven distribution of fresh waterbodies and population across the globe further skew water supply and demand ratios. Also, climate change, deforestation, desertification, droughts, floods, and depletion of natural waterbodies resulting from anthropogenic and natural activities add to these miseries.

  • Western States Buy Time With A 7-Year Colorado River Drought Plan, But Face A Hotter, Drier Future
    Western States Buy Time With A 7-Year Colorado River Drought Plan, But Face A Hotter, Drier Future

    As Midwest states struggled with record spring flooding this year, the Southwest was wrestling with the opposite problem: not enough water. On May 20, 2019, federal officials and leaders from seven states signed the Colorado River Drought Contingency Plan, a sweeping new water management agreement for this arid region.

  • Better Chlorine Control In A Cost-Effective Solution For Small Wastewater Plants
    Better Chlorine Control In A Cost-Effective Solution For Small Wastewater Plants

    Wastewater plants treat effluent with chlorine as a final disinfection measure prior to its discharge into the environment. While this should be straightforward, there are still a significant number of small water systems facing big problems because they don’t have a solid grasp on the process. The good news is that a modern, cost-effective solution is available.

  • Grading Pressure-Boosting Pump Efficiency — On A Curve
    Grading Pressure-Boosting Pump Efficiency — On A Curve

    Are your current pressure-boosting pumps the best design for your operating conditions? Are they maximizing value from your operating budget with peak efficiency? How can you know for sure, and what can you do if they are not? Here are some guidelines for evaluating performance efficiency in pressure-boosting applications and for choosing the best pump configurations for new or existing applications.

  • Know Your Options For Mag Meter Installation Cost, Care, And Calibration
    Know Your Options For Mag Meter Installation Cost, Care, And Calibration

    Electromagnetic meters (mag meters) are well established in terms of highly accurate performance for a variety of municipal and industrial water applications. Differences in their construction formats, however, dictate how easy they can be to install, maintain, and calibrate. Compare these three options to see the value of full-profile-insertion (FPI) mag meters and their associated advantages in real-world use.

  • Seal The Deal: Shielding Against A Mag Meter’s Achilles Heel
    Seal The Deal: Shielding Against A Mag Meter’s Achilles Heel

    When it comes to metering water flow — drinking water or wastewater — full-bore mag meters offer many advantages. While the underlying technology based on Faraday’s Law of electromagnetic induction is shared among all styles of full-bore mag meters, specific implementations have impacts on longevity and accuracy. Here is what to look for when the time to choose arrives.

  • Mapping Assets For Resilience And Response In Emergencies
    Mapping Assets For Resilience And Response In Emergencies

    Among utilities concerned about resilience and response in natural disasters or other emergencies, precise asset inventory and mapping are high priorities. In truth, there is value in having the same information for everyday purposes as well. For anyone who has ever had a problem locating or tracking key water or wastewater system assets, here are several good reasons and ways to avoid a last-minute scramble.
