Water treatment and delivery systems were built for steady, predictable operation. In the face of water scarcity and budget cuts, utility managers are challenged to squeeze more performance out of water infrastructure with advanced technologies.

“We have two perspectives on improving the way in which we run our infrastructure,” says Rick Holmes, Acting Deputy Manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority in Las Vegas. “First, we are bringing in technology to help us keep aging infrastructure working longer.”

“Second, we are seeking out new ways of ensuring water quality. We are looking for new ways of addressing pipe corrosion, disinfection by-products, biological monitoring and damage from invasive species like Quagga mussels.”

We look forward to hearing more from the Southern Nevada Water Authority, as well as other leading water utilities in our upcoming webinar “A Visionary View of Advanced Water Tech.”
