EUROPEAN SMART WATER METER DEPLOYMENTS WILL INCREASE BY 28%

UK Smart water meter deployments across Europe will increase by 28% over the next ten years from an installed base of 11 million meters. That’s according to a new report from Bluefield Research, which predicts that big data will play a key role in the water industry moving forward. As part of the progression to smart technology, Bluefield said there will be an increased use of advanced meter technologies to enable more real-time network and customer analytics. A key drive for this is non-revenue water, which accounts for on average 20% across European utilities. Source: wwinternational.com

NEW STUDY OF WASTEWATER

US: NORTH CAROLINA A new study from Duke University suggests that naturally occurring brines, not man-made fracking fluids, account for most of the wastewater coming from hydraulically fractured unconventional oil and gas wells. Published in the journal – Science of the Total Environment – the findings revealed that more than 92% of the flowback and produced water – or wastewater - coming from the wells is derived from naturally occurring brines that are extracted along with the gas and oil. However, researchers warned that these brines still carry their own risks, as they contain varying levels of salts, heavy metals and naturally occurring radioactive elements, and their sheer volume make

WASTEWATER SYSTEM FOR THE CITY OF LA TRINIDAD IN NORTHERN NICARAGUA

NICARAGUA Water utility ENACAL has awarded Spanish firm ACCIONA Agua a €5 million contact to construct a wastewater system for the city of La Trinidad, in northern Nicaragua. In a joint venture with project company BTD, the work will be carried out over 18 months with the aim to facilitate access to sewerage services to around 9,000 people. A sanitation network with 17.7 kilometers of piping and the construction of a number of water treatment systems, as well as all the exterior work required, will be provided.
