SAVE AND PROTECT WITH BLU-X™.
Sewer overflows are a growing problem for cities around the world. With more severe rain events expected due to climate change, solving this critical water challenge is more important than ever. Doing so affordably is even harder. BLU-X Wastewater Network Optimization technology delivers greater visibility into the performance and capacity utilization of sewer system assets, allowing utility leaders to optimize levels of service while saving CapEx, reducing risk, and protecting the environment.
WITH REAL POWER.
The ability to develop a digital twin for a utility that will autonomously learn and adapt is the cornerstone of Xylem’s BLU-X Wastewater Network Optimization technology.
A GLASS BOX, NOT A BLACK BOX.
Digital solutions often operate as “black boxes”, offering little transparency into their processes. Xylem gives utilities direct insight into the functionality of its data collection and integration process.
NEXT LEVEL ANALYSIS.
The power of Xylem’s BLU-X smart sewer system does not come from simply integrating and collecting data, but from the ability to provide utilities with insights derived from that data to drive outcomes.

With BLU-X, utility leaders like you are saving millions while reducing risk and protecting your environment.
LET’S SEE HOW UNLOCKING POWERFUL INSIGHTS DELIVER TRANSFORMATIVE OUTCOMES.
As just one of the digital solutions in our platform of disruptive technologies, Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization can help your utility significantly reduce the capital and operating costs associated with managing combined and separated sewer systems.
- Reduce CapEx by minimizing the need for costly gray infrastructure
- Avoid flooding and reduce combined and separated sewer overflow volumes
- Eliminate dry weather events
- Decrease E. coli concentrations in receiving waters
- Create a real-time decision support system to enhance operational decision-making across the enterprise
- Integrate with existing systems, and any sensors, telemetry, SCADA, GIS or hydraulic/hydrological modeling systems on the market
- Achieve regulatory compliance obligations in half the time and for millions less
SENSE, PREDICT, AND ACT IN REAL-TIME.
BLU-X utilizes a Sense-Predict-Act methodology, allowing utilities to use their system’s existing capacity to better manage flow and reduce discharge, with controls that work like a commodity trading floor – constantly trading system capacity back and forth using real-time sensors and distributed computing, all visualized in intuitive dashboards.
BLU-X brings together, in real time, sensor monitoring data, traditional hydraulic models, and machine learning tools to bring deeper analysis and insight to wastewater networks than ever before. Simply put, the longer you use BLU-X, the more effective it becomes in its predictive behavior – capturing the complexity and seasonal variability of your watershed.
TAKE THE FIRST STEP TO BETTER ROI.
As a simple, low-investment way to understand your economic opportunity, a Discovery Project is an ideal initial step to taking better control of your wastewater network operations. It allows us to work together to visualize your entire network, identify challenges and opportunities and begin creating a roadmap to transformational outcomes for your utility and community. Let's see how it works:
First, we conduct an initial discovery session to identify your critical system pain point and set quantifiable improvement targets.
Next, we’ll use your existing data and analyze the performance of your system to identify opportunities to operate your wastewater network more efficiently and address your pain point at a lower cost.
Finally, we collaborate with you in a workshop where we provide a data-driven presentation and discuss our analysis. The outcome is a prioritized set of recommendations and practical next steps to optimize your system’s operational and efficiency outcomes.
