Water Project Showcase

2014 Water Project Showcase

The Water Project Showcase is a special supplement to UIM. This year, we’ve focused this this annual supplement on successful project stories from across North America. Project stories offer a comprehensive approach to reporting on new technology in the industry and how it is applied in the field. We’ve also presented a few projects that demonstrate some unique trends in the design, construction, operation and management of water and wastewater systems.

While not all of these projects are award winning, (some are), they do demonstrate innovation across several topic areas, acknowledging the many challenges we have regarding our water infrastructure in North America. We encourage you to read through some of these in the Water Project Showcase.

But understanding some of the larger issues, such as water scarcity and the overall shift that is happening in the way we think about water, is perhaps important before action can be taken.

To help address this broad topic of conservation, we’ve addressed several areas in our Water Conservation Guide that are imperative for a water utility to consider.
