Where’d All The Water Go? The Case For Consumption Monitoring
Where’d All The Water Go? The Case For Consumption Monitoring

Attempting to control water losses within their own infrastructure is only half the battle for water treatment and distribution organizations. To maximize water conservation, they need to involve their customers as well. Here are several ways public and private water utilities can spur internal and external changes in consumption monitoring to improve valuable water-asset management.

    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.

    How To Cannibalize Your Own Technology

    Business people love to talk about "disruption." They pride themselves on eating their competitors' lunch. Where their markets used to be about raving fans, now it's about inspiring craving fans, fueled by "hunger marketing" and the fear of missing out. There's a lot of dog-eat-dog philosophy...which is why it's important for companies to be willing to cannibalize their own technologies.

  • Linking Technologies Key To A Successful Potable Reuse Project

    Potable reuse offers a massive opportunity to recover water from the wastewater process, but projects face a variety of barriers to getting off the ground. Most successful early adopters engaged early with their constituents and implemented smaller-scale demonstration projects that were accessible to the public to prove the technology and process.

  • Pushing Water Reuse To The Extremes

    Large-scale water-reuse treatment plants have had sustainable impact in populated areas where the volume of water to be treated and reused in a concentrated area makes them practical. Today, the flat-sheet membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology that is delivering high-quality wastewater treatment to remote locations is poised to realize the promise of sustainable water reuse in those same locations.

    4 Benefits Of Utilizing Reverse Osmosis Wastewater Treatment For Reuse

    When a municipality or business wants to reuse their wastewater, some applications require more treatment than others due to the quality of the wastewater. Many standard wastewater treatment systems consist of pretreatment, primary treatment, and secondary treatment stages. By the end of the secondary stage, a majority of the pollutants, solids, organics, inorganics, and metals have been removed or reduced. This is where reverse osmosis wastewater treatment can be utilized in a third stage process.

    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.

Water reuse has long been trending up, but where do we stand in 2019 and beyond, particularly with respect to potable reuse, which has been more difficult to implement? Andrew Salveson, Water Reuse Practice Director at Carollo Engineers, talked about adoption rates, national and regional activity, and what's on tap for water reuse in this Water Talk interview. While the West and Southwest parts of the U.S. have been faster to embrace the practice due to drought and scarcity, Salveson explains why the Northwest and East Coast, where rain is abundant, are also getting on board.

Successful Reuse Projects Hinge On Trusted Partnerships Successful Reuse Projects Hinge On Trusted Partnerships

Municipalities are under increasing pressure to identify new water sources and at some point in the near future many will be forced to take a hard look at reuse. While solutions available for reuse projects are reliable, the trick is properly combining them properly and ensuring operators who are unfamiliar with the technology can become proficient. For water utilities, this means having a trusted partner to enable the solutions. In this Water Talk interview, Patrick Regan, vice president of global corporate accounts with Evoqua, discusses the factors that will drive water reuse as well as approaches to address emerging contaminants.
