  • Reduce Leakage Losses

    Grundfos\' MPC multi-pump controller compensates for surplus pressure and reduces water hammer. Real losses from leakage of non-revenue water (NRW) continue to be an important issue for water companies. Grundfos can help reducing water hammer which causes new holes. The solution in both these cases is the Grundfos Control multi-pump controller, and in particular proportional pressure control - a ...

  • Informing householders of leaks can prevent water loss

    By identifying leaks using ‘smart’ water meters, and then encouraging householders to fix the problem, water companies can reduce the volumes of wasted water dramatically, new research suggests. In a case study in Australia, households reduced water loss by up to 91% after being informed of leaks in their homes and offered a rebate on repairs. Water scarcity is a serious problem ...

  • Stop Massive Municipal Water Loss with GRP Pipes

    Nearly 40% of South Africa’s municipal water is lost before ever reaching customers, according to the Water Research Commission (WRC). This equates to approximately 1,580-million cubic metres of lost water per annum in a country considered “water-scarce”, or an estimated R7 billion in lost revenue.   Says Roger Rusch, CEO of Industrial Water Cooling ...

  • New water loss control products from ADS

    Huntsville, AL ADS LLC today introduces a full line of cost-efficient, advanced water loss control products for leak detection and flow measurement. These technologically innovative instruments form an integrated approach to system monitoring and leakage control for water distribution networks.

  • AWWA announces webcast on water loss management

    The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced today that it will host a webcast on utility water loss management strategies on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. EDT. This webcast will focus on the water audit method developed by AWWA and the International Water Association. How to implement ILI metrics to evaluate water loss trends will also be included, along with case studies that ...

  • Antarctic ice loss dangerously fast

    New studies show that the Antarctic ice sheet is melting faster than previously anticipated. If this jump is indicative of a trend due to global warming the entire antarctic ecology could be threatened much sooner than expected. In a first-of-its-kind study, an international team led by Eric Rignot of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., and the University of California, Irvine, ...

  • Antarctic ice loss increasing steadily

    Increasing amounts of ice mass have been lost from West Antarctica and the Antarctic peninsula over the past ten years, according to research from the University of Bristol and published online this week in Nature Geoscience. Meanwhile the ice mass in East Antarctica has been roughly stable, with neither loss nor accumulation over the past decade. Professor Jonathan Bamber at the University of ...

  • Understanding and addressing the causes of biodiversity loss

    Many species around the world are likely to become extinct as ecosystems and the diversity of life found in them are threatened by pressures, such as pollution, overexploitation, climate change, invasive species, fragmentation, degradation and loss of habitat. A recent report has examined the causes of biodiversity loss and the policies surrounding efforts to tackle this loss. Biodiversity is ...

  • Biodiversity loss: now for the hard part

    Last month's Nagoya summit on biodiversity reached some important agreements. The challenge is to ensure that they are fully implemented. What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those clamouring for strong international action to combat the effects of global warming were optimistically looking forward to a high-level meeting in Copenhagen they hoped would launch a new global ...

  • California Water Board backs program targeting utilities’ water losses

    The California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association (CA-NV AWWA) will receive $3.2 million over two years to help California’s water agencies produce validated system water audits, in an action approved by the State Water Resources Control Board on January 5. Accurate water audits are the first step in developing systematic water management programs to cut unnecessary ...

  • New map of soil loss by water erosion across Europe

    Soil erosion is an important issue in Europe, with consequences for water quality, ecosystem services supply and crop production. In this study, researchers enhanced an existing model to estimate soil loss and create an updated map of soil erosion across the EU. The authors say the tool can simulate the effects of land use changes and management practices and will support effective policy ...

  • Metropolitana Milanese Reduces Water Loss on Critical Steel Pipeline

    Assessing the condition of buried water infrastructure can yield a variety of outcomes that are difficult to predict. Sometimes, they even seem random. 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 ...

  • 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 ...
