COMMUNITIES RELY ON WATER UTILITIES – AND MOST DON’T EVEN REALIZE IT.
Communities’ lifeblood is water. In the industrialized world, water is taken as a given. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, it is there for the people, businesses and industries at the turn of a faucet or valve. Many don’t give it a second thought.
Communities can take water for granted because water utilities don’t. Safeguarding health and providing for commerce takes hard work and dedication.
TREATMENT IS COMPLICATED. TIGHTER REGULATIONS. RESISTANCE TO RATE INCREASES.
Today, water utilities have to do more with less, and it’s not easy. They must conserve energy, make the most of every drop of water, use staff most efficiently to hold down costs, while meeting stricter requirements and improving quality.
Water utilities have relied upon Xylem legacy brands for decades, brands like Sanitaire, Leopold and Wedeco. Research teams continually develop innovations to make processes and equipment more energy efficient, more reliable, more water efficient, and easier to operate. With YSI instrumentation and advanced control protocols, Xylem engineers can help optimize operations, saving energy and ensuring high quality.
Xylem has led the way in developing energy efficient ultraviolet disinfection, to reduce the use of chlorine and the potential for harmful byproducts. From the most advanced and efficient granular media filtration systems to ultrafiltration, Xylem has the products and services to address the most demanding water treatment challenges. Pretreatment systems have been developed for desalination, which remove harmful contaminants, including toxic algae, increase production, and protect reverse osmosis membranes. Xylem is prepared for future requirements, leading the way in developing effective, energy efficient treatments for pharmaceutical residuals and personal care products through advanced oxidation processes such as ozone and peroxide treatment.
But, Xylem is more than just equipment. Xylem engineers can provide assistance at every step of the process. Through process evaluation and energy studies, system can be recommended that will help best serve local customers, providing the lowest life cycle costs to help keep rates affordable. Whether the system can achieve goals through upgrades and retrofits, or whether new demands require new process trains, Xylem engineers have the expertise to help find the system that fits customer needs and budget. Through Xylem's Total Care program, services are available to help maintain, trouble shoot and optimize operations.
Xylem realizes more needs to be done to safeguard the health of the world’s population. Hundreds of millions of people lack the access to clean water that those in the industrialized world take for granted. That is why Watermark was launched, joining with best-in-class nonprofits to address the water challenges of the developing world as well. Xylem's collaboration with Water for People and Mercy Corps has expanded access to life saving water and sanitation to communities around the globe.
Xylem understands the commitment to local communities. Through expertise and equipment, Xylem helps ensures that when someone turns that valve or open that faucet, water will be there, and they don’t need to give it a second thought.
Together we can do it. Let’s protect health. Let’s solve water.
