  • Jerusalem Region Water & Wastewater Utility Implements A Fixed Water Monitoring And Leak Detection Solution Offered By Trimble Water
    Jerusalem Region Water & Wastewater Utility Implements A Fixed Water Monitoring And Leak Detection Solution Offered By Trimble Water

    Water utilities throughout the world must deal with the issue of non-revenue water (NRW), which can seem like a never ending battle. One of the largest contributors to NRW are leaks from pipes and other assets such as valves or hydrants, that can be caused by aging infrastructure, cold weather, and soil erosion. Water main breaks are not only a waste of water as a precious resource, but can also be dangerous and life threatening.

  • The Caribbean’s Wastewater Problem
    The Caribbean’s Wastewater Problem

    For decades, wastewater management has been a growing problem for the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR), a problem that regional governments have long understood as a threat to the economy, the environment, and to public health. In the Caribbean, most wastewater from cities, industry, and agriculture pours directly into surface water or into the sea completely untreated, degrading residents’ quality of life, as well as the region’s biodiversity, pristine blue waters, and reefs, which are the lifeblood of the vital tourism industry.

  • Lifecycle Management — Enhancing The ROI Of Control System Investments
    Lifecycle Management — Enhancing The ROI Of Control System Investments

    In water plant operations, there’s no such thing as simply maintaining the status quo. Any utility that is not moving forward is falling behind. Whether a water treatment or wastewater treatment plant (WTP/WWTP) chooses to rely on in-house resources or outside specialists, here are some lifecycle management approaches they can use to upgrade control capabilities without compromising performance or return on investment. 

  • Spotlight: 510(k) – What FDA Changes Could Mean For Medical Device Research And Beyond
    Spotlight: 510(k) – What FDA Changes Could Mean For Medical Device Research And Beyond

    The medical device industry is undergoing seismic regulatory shifts. These shifts have major implications for clinical trials and eClinical technology, and are largely aimed toward modernizing some of the industry’s biggest institutions – namely, the 510(k) program. At Medrio, we’ve been keeping close watch on how the story develops.

  • FlexRake Bar Screens At 24+ Sites Around Houston Were Unaffected By Hurricane Harvey
    FlexRake Bar Screens At 24+ Sites Around Houston Were Unaffected By Hurricane Harvey

    Despite the destruction of Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, Duperon® wastewater screening systems in the cities of Cuero and Refugio, Texas – approximately 150 miles southwest of Houston – were virtually unaffected by the storm. Duperon’s FlexRake® bar screens, installed at both locations as well as dozens of other sites in and around Houston, remove objects like rags, paper, plastics, and metals to prevent damage and clogging of downstream treatment equipment. Both communities found essentially no damage to their wastewater screening equipment.

  • 5 Ways To Tell If Your “Rugged” Tablet, Laptop, Or Handheld Is A Knock-Off
    5 Ways To Tell If Your “Rugged” Tablet, Laptop, Or Handheld Is A Knock-Off

It isn’t something we “also” do like many other device manufacturers that also build and sell an extensive lineup of non-rugged or desktop computers, or even vacuum cleaners or air conditioners. 

  • The Importance Of pH Measurement During Industrial Treatment
    The Importance Of pH Measurement During Industrial Treatment

    Nearly every industry requires water and wastewater treatment to some degree. From food and beverage to pulp and paper operations, influent and effluent must meet certain conditions to adhere to regulatory and/or performance requirements, and water used during the process must conform as well.

  • Linking Technologies Key To A Successful Potable Reuse Project
    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.

    In 2017, Orlando residents saw firsthand the negative effects of what could happen when a construction crew caused a major water main break downtown. Not only did the leak become an inconvenience for the city, but it also was expensive to repair.

  • The Benefits of Warning Your Clients About Price Increases
    The Benefits of Warning Your Clients About Price Increases

    It’s that time of year again; reviewing contracts and sweating over the fact of having to notify clients about pricing changes. Why do we get so concerned? Other industries have no issues with raising prices — think of the increases we have come to know on a yearly basis including electric, cable, water, and property taxes to name just a few. However, our increases usually come with improvement of our services yet we still worry about customer’s reactions. Luckily, I have some good news: It’s time to stop worrying because there are more benefits than downsides of warning our clients about price increases.
