  • Choosing The Right Residential Water Metering Technology
    Choosing The Right Residential Water Metering Technology

    Accurate and dependable water metering is more important than ever for today’s water utilities. Although utility managers are tasked with meeting tight budgets, it is imperative for utilities to invest in their water metering infrastructure. When making meter selection decisions, utilities must consider several factors. These include service size, application, and expected flow rates. There is no “one type fits all” application when it comes to meter technologies.

  • Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant
    Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant

    In spite of the recent abundance of water, many of California’s aquifers continue to balance on the edge of water scarcity. Decades of overpumping have reduced the amount of ground water available to supplement surface water resources diminished by drought. The Pure Water Monterey Ground Water Replenishment Project (Monterey Pure), addressed the need to replenish a local aquifer, by piloting Advanced Water Treatment (AWT) processes, to determine the best method to convert secondary wastewater into a pure water resource.

  • A Visual Guide To Troubleshooting Your Valves
    A Visual Guide To Troubleshooting Your Valves

    Water management professionals know all too well that problems arise — usually sometime after 2 a.m., or just as you’re walking out the door for a holiday weekend. No matter how well-prepared you are, or how sophisticated your system, sometimes you’re going to run into challenges. It’s simply the nature of the industry. When you experience an issue with your valves (especially when they’re failing to open or close as expected) your first instinct is to call the factory for support. While some cases may require factory assistance, this isn’t always the most efficient solution.
