ASSET MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS & INSIGHTS FOR UTILITY MANAGERS

  • 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.

  • Moneyball For Water And Wastewater Treatment
    Moneyball For Water And Wastewater Treatment

    The movie and sports term has infiltrated the business world and has important implications for the water/wastewater industry.

  • Plastic Flow Meters Reduce Weight, Space, Corrosion — Not Accuracy
    Plastic Flow Meters Reduce Weight, Space, Corrosion — Not Accuracy

    There are a variety of reasons for wanting accurate flow metering — e.g., billing purposes, precise proportioning of chemical injections, and other process flow decisions. That is why highly accurate mag meters are so popular in many applications. Now, new lightweight, corrosion-resistant mag meters provide the same advantages as plastic piping for harsh environments and flows that cover all the bases…and acids.

  • Making Sense Of Water Distribution Data: Don’t Fear The Detail
    Making Sense Of Water Distribution Data: Don’t Fear The Detail

    For many water-distribution workers and managers up to their elbows in muddy trenches and SCADA data, the drumbeat for ‘Big Data’ probably fades to background noise when dealing with immediate leaks and losses on the front lines. Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, however. Many answers we truly want are probably accessible through current water distribution data. We just need an easier way to wring them out.

  • Striking An Ideal Balance In WTP/WWTP Chlorine Dosing
    Striking An Ideal Balance In WTP/WWTP Chlorine Dosing

    For managing chlorine feed rates, automated chlorine analysis has always offered advantages over manual grab samples and feed adjustments. Today, chlorine analyzers connected to cloud-based systems for integrated instrument, data, and process management are bringing new continual-sampling insights to water and wastewater treatment plants (WTPs/WWTPs).

  • Leveraging Connectivity For Improved Chlorine Analyzer Performance
    Leveraging Connectivity For Improved Chlorine Analyzer Performance

    While accurate instrument readings are important to water treatment plant (WTP) and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators, having deeper understanding of plant operations is even more valuable. Here’s how intelligent networking capabilities are giving plant operators better understanding and control over their processes by enhancing instrumentation operation, data sharing, and maintenance management.

  • Evolution Of Pipeline Leak Detection
    Evolution Of Pipeline Leak Detection

    As the sheer number of pipelines crisscrossing the country continues to increase, there is an urgent need to ensure pipeline infrastructure safety. The age of many of the pipelines and the number of different products flowing makes this a challenging prospect. Now, new technology has been developed that meets the need for reliable protection that complies with regulatory requirements while eliminating false alarms.

  • New Elevation Data Triple Estimates Of Global Vulnerability To Sea-Level Rise And Coastal Flooding
    New Elevation Data Triple Estimates Of Global Vulnerability To Sea-Level Rise And Coastal Flooding

    Most estimates of global mean sea-level rise this century fall below 2 m. This quantity is comparable to the positive vertical bias of the principle digital elevation model (DEM) used to assess global and national population exposures to extreme coastal water levels, NASA’s SRTM. CoastalDEM is a new DEM utilizing neural networks to reduce SRTM error. Here we show — employing CoastalDEM — that 190 M people currently occupy global land below projected high tide lines for 2100 under low carbon emissions, up from 110 M today, for a median increase of 80 M.

  • Managing Disaster In An Age Of Climate Change
