Hydrant Flow Testing: Purpose, Process, and Experiences
April 1, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MTN
Hydrant Flow Testing will cover aspects of proper measurement related to fire-flow rates and pressures from hydrants in water distribution systems. During the webinar, multiple purposes of testing will be discussed, such as determining available fire-flow rate, system pressures, hydraulic model calibration, operational conditions, including fire-fighting and system flushing; also, testing procedures, data to capture during testing, and calculations to determine available fire-flow rates. Experiences of special situations will be included, such as very high pressures and testing on large-diameter water mains. The webinar will conclude with insight on how test results can prove to be valuable support for utility planning and operations.

Potable Reuse and Conservation: Water Source Development to Plan for Drought
April 8, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MTN
This webinar addresses multiple options for source water development for both long- and short-term planning for drought. Potable reuse and conservation will be addressed along with examples of applications and success stories.
In the face of severe drought, utilities need to be able to plan for the development of alternative sources or implement conservation strategies to best use the sources available. Effective conservation efforts and potable reuse are both viable options to consider. Through this webinar, viewers will understand the impacts of each and will be able to better assess appropriate approaches for their utilities.
The Future of Water Utility Management: Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA)
April 16, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MTN
This complimentary webinar is sponsored by Badger Meter
Today’s business environment demands informed decision making and control over your utility management. It’s essential you know how to efficiently manage your operations, conserve water and energy, provide superior customer service, achieve regulatory compliance, and control revenue and resources – all while also staying ahead of the latest technology advancements. First, learn how to use web-based software services (the cloud or SaaS) to improve the type of data you collect and how you manage your utility operations. Next, , learn how two utilities justified implementation of these new technologies to streamline revenue and operations management, as well as monitor water conservation efforts and enable easier government regulation and compliance reporting.
We will cover new cloud-based software services and technologies, as well as, managed solution business models. You will learn how AMA can provide you with additional data to proactively manage your operations and enhance your customer relationships. This presentation also illustrates how utilities can justify implementation of these new technologies by applying metering system data to monitor and manage water and energy conservation efforts, while also enabling easier government regulation and compliance reporting, enhancing customer service, and streamlining revenue and operations management.
