Global Thought Leader Series
Certain companies in the water and wastewater industry are veritable trailblazers, forging ahead and sharing their expertise with others in an effort to help them stay current with new trends and technologies and do their jobs more efficiently. Our new Global Thought Leader Series will feature a collection of white papers and related videos from these innovators, giving you free and easy access to a bank of useful knowledge.
For most water utilities, walking from meter-to-meter in support of monthly or quarterly billing is a thing of the past. Even mobile reads, which drive greater efficiencies, aren’t enough to meet increasing demands to improve customer service, reduce non-revenue water, aid conservation initiatives, and share meter data across other departments.
If your water utility is looking to do more, while staying open to the growing possibilities of deploying a Smart Water AMI Network, consider the benefits of Network-as-a-Service (NaaS). Your utility can save significant time, labor, and money—and instead focus on core water needs.
As a managed network service, NaaS provides for greater operational efficiency, reduces AMI infrastructure costs, helps manage technology migration, and positions your utility to leverage a Smart Water Network for additional IoT/M2M applications.

Lakes and impounded surface waters provide distinct challenges for drinking water treatment facilities. Algae, Taste and Odor and Iron and Manganese can lead to significant negative public relations outcomes. Turbidity spikes and swings can result in requirements for large and potentially inefficient chemical usage. Effectively dealing with these types of surface water challenges places increased stress on operating staff and results in high operating costs but also often leads to capital improvement planning decisions to upgrade water treatment infrastructure in response. And at the core of the drivers to spend more on chemicals and more capital on treatment is the desire to manage the incalculable public relations risks associated with poor treatment outcomes at the tap. There is significant value in having source water management and raw water pretreatment tools designed to permit, in real time, operator understanding and control of the water quality drawn into the treatment plant influent. This paper addresses one such tool which is providing important reservoir water quality characteristics, reduced cost of treatment and risk management information for surface water users and treatment plant operators.
