Bikram Sabherwal, Jesse Wallin and Sandeep Sathyamoorthy explain how Black & Veatch’s new sewer mining toolbox will be used by the company to help utility managers and developers determine whether decentralized water reuse is right for them. Read Now World Water - Water Reuse & Desalination Taking Anammox Out of the Box for Mainstream Water Reuse Engineers are constantly searching for new water reuse methods to sustain the world’s finite supply. Black & Veatch’s Sandeep Sathyamoorthy shares pilot-study findings and insights about the emerging role of biofiltration in the use of anammox processes to manage nitrogen for mainstream treatment. Read Now World Water - Water Reuse & Desalination Making Sense of Sensor Data for Potable Reuse Dr. Jeff Neemann, Jay DeCarolis, Hedieh Esfahani and Jon Loveland share details about a Black & Veatch-led Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) project that will help managers and operators of potable reuse facilities use big data to detect anomalies, take appropriate real-time action, and support regulatory compliance.

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.

The water sector’s response has many parallels with reactions to AI more broadly: we are certain AI has benefits, are less sure about how to realise them, and wary of unintended consequences. When Water is the Product, How Do We Afford Sustainability? Regardless of industry or product, the effective use of water carries huge weight for plant operators and other decision-makers who must pit emerging social calls for sustainability against the money on hand to make it happen. Hydropower Strategic Alliances: How Producers Can Benefit Strategic alliances with hydropower producers are a natural fit for asset management programs. They can be set up broadly to help producers maintain organizational stability, reliability, and financial performance. Asia Pacific's 'Digital Utilities' of the Future In addition to environmental and social challenges, water utilities in Asia Pacific are faced with the complexities of non-revenue water, underdeveloped or aging water infrastructure and growing expenditure. Digital transformation may offer the water industry the opportunity to provide reliable and sustainable water supply by optimizing distribution systems, treatment efficiency and asset management. Energy Planning Offers Efficiency, Cost Savings, Resilience Down the Road As energy costs continue to rise and more states adopt regulatory incentives and disincentives that drive large-scale sustainability and efficiency efforts, it is expected that utilities will become more aggressive in their approach to managing energy.
