Read Now World Water - Water Reuse & Desalination Turbidity Monitoring Approach Improves Potable Reuse Acceptance Research by the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence resulted in the Development of the Membrane Bioreactor Validation Protocol, which makes it possible to evaluate the effectiveness of MBR treatment on future potable reuse schemes. Black & Veatch’s Global Practice Leader for Alternative Water Supply, Jon Loveland, explains the significance of this research on MBR system design and public acceptance of potable reuse. Read Now WaterWorld The Quest for Smart Water "Smart" water systems hold enormous potential for improving the way water and wastewater utilities operate. It's not a new concept, but seems slow to gain traction in the water industry. Black & Veatch's Andrew Chastain-Howley weighs in. View Video Water Online From Australia to California, Log Reduction Credits for MBR Systems Based on data collection and evaluations performed by the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence and a review of its 2016 Membrane Bioreactor Validation Protocol, the State of California is prepared to accept a similar approach to MBR treatment systems and grant pathogen log reduction values based on turbidity monitoring as a means of demonstrating membrane integrity. In this interview, Black & Veatch's Jon Loveland talks about the potential impact for MBR treatment systems and future potable reuse treatment schemes. View Video World Water Does Water Reuse Make Economic Sense in Water-Rich Environments? It’s generally smart to consider water reuse where demand outpaces supply. But it can also be worthwhile to consider the potential economic and other benefits of recycling where water is more plentiful. Gary Hunter, James Schlaman, and Jeff Henson of Black & Veatch, together with Charles G. Stevens at KC Water and Andy Clements with the City of St. Joseph’s Public Works Department in Missouri, examine whether water reuse makes economic sense in water-rich environments in the March/April 2019 issue of WEF’S WORLD WATER magazine.

Aging infrastructure is primarily to blame, as an estimated 40 percent of U.S. water and wastewater pipes are beyond their life expectancy, notes a recent article in WaterWorld. The article goes on to say that half of forecasted capital expenditures by water providers will cover new installation and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure Predictive Maintenance Offers Promise in Asset Management When it comes to understanding how water utilities approach asset maintenance, survey data shows that, on average, they tend to weight their efforts more heavily toward preventive maintenance. The Stormwater Resilience Roadmap: Integration of Delivery Frameworks and Financial Capacity A structured path to a paradigm shift in stormwater management can be developed by integrating an alternative program planning and execution framework, and by enhancing financial resilience through effective funding mechanisms.
