Dealing with the Highs and Lows of Flow

Water is becoming a much more valuable commodity every year, so the measurement of water has also become a big business opportunity.  Where water is not as plentiful as it once was, less will be allotted for irrigation and personal use.  This article outlines what is being used to measu...

Environmental Protection and Flood Prevention with the Modular HOBAS Combined Sewer Overflow Chamber

Rising sea levels, increasingly severe rainstorms, and an ever-growing population density keep influencing the ground water level in urban areas and affecting the urban environment. While it is hardly possible to alter the actuators, we can do something to mitigate the consequences. The HOBAS Pro...

Disaster Prevention: Monitoring Water Depth in Roadside Drainage Ditches with Level Sensors

This white paper describes the use and installation of level transmitters for stormwater monitoring in roadside ditches for disaster prevention.

How To Select The Most Effective Blower Technology For Wastewater Applications

Given numerous variables when selecting an aeration blower system for wastewater applications, and equally numerous claims by technology providers, it is not surprising that confusion exists. Worse than confusion is the disappointment that results when a blower technology fails to perform as anti...

Eliminate TKN Digestions and Obtain Better Nutrient Data

Nitrogen and Phosphorus are the principal elements referred to when discussing nutrient pollution. Current, and past, efforts to control these pollutants have been generally inadequate. Efforts to date have been predominantly “regulation at the pipe” and have not addressed the non-point sources t...

Productivity at the Commercial (or pay per test) Laboratory using GCMS

Commercial environmental laboratories analyze large numbers of samples per day using approved methods, and produce data that need to be technically sound and legally defensible. To remain competitive, commercial laboratories need rugged, automated instruments so they can decrease downtime and inc...

Why Smart Water Networks Boost Efficiency

The Smart Water Network (SWAN) is the water utility industry’s equivalent to the energy industry’s Smart Grid. However, water utilities are trying to determine how new SWAN technologies will help maintain or improve service and profitability levels at existing water billing rates. This paper expl...

How the Cloud is Revolutionizing the Future of Water Utility Management: Understanding the Differences Between Managed Cloud-based Software Solutions and Traditional In-house Solutions for Water Meter Data Management

  The emergence of the cloud-based, managed solution approach to advanced metering analytics has been met by a lack of thorough understanding of how this new model compares to the traditional in-house AMI model, and how a utility might rationalize its costs and benefits. This white paper pro...

High Viscosity Polymer Measurement

One of the challenges in the measurement of waste water and water treatment processes is high viscosity fluid flow. An example is the flow of polymers used in waste water treatment plants.  Costly polymers are mixed with water and used to coagulate (thicken) suspended solids and produce what...

Three Steps for Reducing Total Cost of Ownership in Pumping Systems

Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance c...

ANDalyze - Real-time Heavy Metals Testing in Water

Water pollution is a worldwide problem affecting developing and developed countries alike. Heavy metal contaminants are one prevalent type of water pollutant. They are persistent in the environment once discharged and removal from source waters is necessary to ensure a clean drinking water supply...

Operational and Energy Efficiency for Water and Wastewater Utilities

Countless municipalities and utilities are facing aging water and wastewater facilities. Addressing these issues is expected to cost $2 trillion over the next 25 years. Budget shortfalls, shrinking revenues and staff reductions make it difficult to tackle inefficient infrastructure and escalating...
