    Mating And Consolidating

    It can be hard to go it alone, especially when times get tough. Many utilities are seeking support, as they deal with failing infrastructure, escalating contamination threats, extreme weather, and a retiring, difficult-to-replace workforce. These challenges could be overcome with a full set of resources — money, people, equipment, expertise — but many utilities, especially small-community systems, are not so complete.

  • Utility Turns Over A New Leaf And Embraces Technology To Solve A Problem
    Utility Turns Over A New Leaf And Embraces Technology To Solve A Problem

    Genesee County, located in the middle of Michigan, offers families plenty of outdoor activities and a good way of life. The county’s water and wastewater utilities keep this way of life flowing. When Pump Station #8 kept clogging with debris and required countless maintenance calls to repair, the plant operator began to look for a solution.

    By installing the new Flygt Concertor Intelligent Pumping System with clog detection and pump cleaning functions, Genesee County’s Pump Station #8 is now a clog free operation. The Concertor, a smart wastewater pumping system that senses the operating conditions of its environment, adapts its performance in real time, and provides feedback to pumping station operators.

  • Don’t Let A Water Crisis Boil Over

    No utility wants to issue a Boil Water Notice, but if it does happen, it’s important to get it right. Even if your utility has had a long, unblemished record of delivering high-quality water, a mishandled contamination event will leave a bad taste in your customers’ mouths (so to speak).
