A year ago, world leaders handed down an ambitious agenda: 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be successfully completed by 2030. This new global framework puts water at the centre of sustainable development, and presents an unprecedented opportunity for a revolution in water management around the world. Never in human history have governments committed themselves to make such progress on water.

Onsite Residential Membrane Systems, Possible? - Case Study
Homeowners test the latest advancements for their wastewater treatment BioBarrier System installed by Alternative Wastewater Systems, LLC. in Idaho. SituationSince early 2001, Alternative Wastewater Systems (AWS) of Idaho has distributed Bio-Microbics products. Very familiar with the MicroFAST and other FAST systems, they wanted to try out the new BioBarrier Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) unit, also from Bio-Microbics.Ryan Spiers of Spiers Construction identifi ed a family needing a MicroFAST 0.5 and asked them if...
Southern california meets water demands and Controls saltwater intrusion - Case study
ApplicationDue to increasing water demands, decreasing supplies of imported water, and recurring drought conditions, state and local governments are expanding or developing groundwater replenishment or recharge systems. These systems divert highly treated wastewater, which is typically discharged into the ocean or local surface waters, into natural storage areas. The reclaimed waters, once purified, are injected into seawater intrusion barriers, piped to recharge areas, or discharged to surface waters and eventuall...
River conservation is ‘blind’ without high-resolution monitoring
Scientists from the University of Portsmouth have been investigating nutrient concentrations in the Upper River Itchen, in Hampshire, UK, on behalf of Salmon & Trout Conservation (S&TC) to better understand where phosphorus is coming from and how it is impacting river ecology. The work has been ongoing for over three years and Lauren Mattingley, Science Officer for S&TC says: “Continuous monitoring of phosphorus has improved our understanding of nutrient dynamics in the Itchen. So far, the...
The Power of Reclaimed Water
Power generation need not be another source of strain on diminishing freshwater resources. Well-established water reclamation technologies are enabling producers to conserve resources and money. Meeting the needs of a planetary population expected to surpass eight billion people by 2025 is requiring more output from fewer resources. In the case of dwindling supplies of freshwater, the strain on the natural resource from economic and population growth, and climate change, can be exacerbated by other...
