Quotes

(Dave Tuan, Williston Public Works Director) "The growth projections continue to drive our end capacity. What we saw in our last projection was what we thought a threshold for 150,000 people for WAWS in this region. That will drive capacity of the plant to be even greater than it was. So there's no end in sight in the near future."
"To implement this system, we will be forming district metering areas (DMA) and monitoring supply to these. Through flow meters, we will keep a check on the water supplied within the hydraulic boundary and compare it with the connections consuming the supply. The gap will indicate the extent of non-revenue water in each study area" said a senior official
John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor, added: "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place. More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that OnSite Central Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector."
One example of the high cost of energy for operating water treatment is quoted from the American Council For An Energy Efficient Economy, "municipal water supply and wastewater treatment systems are among the most energy-intensive facilities owned and are operated by local governments, accounting for about 35% of energy used by municipalities."
