  • Studies reveal why drinking water wells are vulnerable to contamination

    New USGS groundwater studies explain what, when, and how contaminants may reach public-supply wells. All wells are not equally vulnerable to contamination because of differences in three factors: the general chemistry of the aquifer, groundwater age, and direct paths within aquifer systems that allow water and contaminants to reach a well. More than 100 million people in the United States receive ...

  • U.K. Water Companies Address Domestic Water Shortage

    The current water shortage in southeast England is having a marked effect on water resource strategy.

  • ReportsnReports - Water Technology Markets

    The water sector is facing greater challenges than ever before: population growth, climate change, increased water scarcity, tougher environmental regulation, and dwindling public finances. As we confront these issues, only one thing stands between success and failure: water technology. It is a subject which has been neglected over the years. The pipe, the pump and the valve, have been enough to ...


  • Metropolitana Milanese Reduces Water Loss on Critical Steel Pipeline

    The common belief that the age of a pipe determines its condition is rarely correct – in many cases, a newer main can be in worse condition than one twice or three times as old. Instead, operational, environmental and installation factors have more impact on the condition of a buried asset. For utilities embarking on proactive management and assessment of their buried infrastructure, leak ...
