Customer Information System Best Practices | WWD Weekly Digest

As water and wastewater utilities adopt increasingly more digital solutions to their repertoire, sharing data and information with customers is critical. Not only do customers demand transparency, they also demand immediate access to information like they would receive from consumer services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. But where does a water or wastewater system begin with addressing these customer demands?

In the April issue of WWD, Michelle Gillum, director of marketing for VertexOne, authored an article about the principles of CIS system planning. In this interview, Matt Lindgren, senior vice president of product delivery for VertexONE, and Peter Eiland, solution architect for VertexONE, discuss how to build a better customer information system (CIS) that will meet customers’ wants and needs. They highlight the need for transparency, the importance of securing data, the reliability of the systems, and how to reach customers on tablets and mobile devices. Perhaps more importantly, they discuss how all of these features intersect with the IT department for a utility and some best practices for utility managers to ensure they are making promises their IT department can keep.

Conserve Water Efficiently

Approximately 17 gallons of water are lost every day due to leaks in homes. In annual numbers, that amount of water wasted is astronomical. This makes it much more difficult for utilities to keep up with treatment of an increasing number of leaks, and it causes greater risks of wasting this most precious resource. With technology advancing so quickly, certain measures can be put in place to proactively address some of these challenges before they even arise.

The Legal Side of PFAS in Water | WWD Weekly Digest

On March 15, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published the Fifth Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule designed to tackle PFAS in water. PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl substances) have been a growing concern for water industry professionals for years, but they are not new chemicals so much as they have received greater recent attention due to documentaries such as The Devil We Know.

Ken Sansone is a partner at SL Environmental Law Group, a legal group specializing in making companies contributing to PFAS contamination accountable to help utilities pay for equipment upgrades to remove the contamination in their systems. Sansone covers the challenges of addressing PFAS in water through federal legislation and how local, state and regional rules further complicate the regulation environment for these chemicals. He also highlights the importance of rules such as the UCMR 5 in starting a discussion on standardizing methods for testing and removal and what industry professionals can expect for future regulations.
