Water utility & municipal water treatment solutions

Water utilities & municipalities are challenged with providing safe and clean water to their customers at all times. Xylem has the water treatment solutions and expertise to ensure your success at every step of the drinking water cycle. Learn how we can increase your efficiency, enhance your water purification, water quality and water availability.

The challenges that water utilities and municipalities face are complex, ranging from diminished water resources to failing infrastructure. Many of our water utility customers have faced challenges such as:

  • Insufficient treatment capacity
  • Failing equipment and aging pipes
  • Seasonal water shortages
  • Labor-intensive monitoring and reporting
  • Uncollected revenue for water delivered
  • Inability to reduce costs and energy bills

Learn how we have helped solve these challenges to delivering clean water by providing clean water solutions unique to each municipality and water utility.

Municipal water purification technologies for the entire clean water cycle

At Xylem, we offer a range of solutions for providing clean drinking water. We have mapped the clean water cycle in seven steps, which you can read about below. Our solutions include everything you need for water intake, treatment, distribution, metering and analytics. We are committed to your success!

Water intake and monitoring

Global challenges such as climate change, population growth, pollutants and algal blooms are affecting water availability. At the same time, energy costs are rising. Learn how you can address these issues with Xylem’s water intake solutions, including pumps, turbines and analytics.

Utility water purification solutions

Drinking water requires efficient clarification and filtration processes, which are often not making an efficient use of water and energy. See how Xylem’s purification solutions effectively eliminate algae, large organics and other solids from raw water while automatically minimizing uses of your resources.

Water disinfection

Reliable disinfection of drinking water is critical for ensuring safety and compliance with regulations. Using chemicals for disinfection, however, can increase risks and operating costs. Read how Xylem’s chemical-free solutions for water disinfection minimize risks and expenses.

Micropollutant, taste and odor removal

Your customers expect drinking water without any color, odor or taste. Micropollutants like pharmaceuticals are an additional concern. Learn how Xylem’s advanced oxidation processes for micropollutant, taste and odor removal help you supply clean water to your customers.

Water transfers and distribution

Distributing clean drinking water over long distances can require a lot of energy. In addition, too much water pressure can lead to ruptures in aging pipes. Find out how Xylem’s water transfers and distribution solutions help you lower energy use and minimize ruptures.

Network condition assessment and water leak detection

Detecting water leaks and predicting future leaks can help prevent expensive system failures. Learn how Xylem’s solutions for network condition assessments, conducted without interrupting operations, minimize costs by ensuring the best use of your current infrastructure.

Water metering and billing

Accurately measuring water volumes and water consumption in your network is critical. See how Xylem’s volumetric metering and remote-control solutions, including advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), help you detect water losses and ensure accurate billing.
