Water intake and monitoring solutions for clean water

Raw water intake is the first step in producing clean water, but water utilities face a number of challenges. These include droughts, algal blooms, industrial pollution and rising energy costs, which impact the efficiency of the downstream water purification and disinfection. Learn how Xylem’s solutions for water intake can help you overcome them.

Xylem solutions for your water intake challenges

Ensuring a reliable, sustainable water supply is critical to your business. Xylem provides a number of solutions, including pumping and analytics that can improve the resilience and quality of your drinking water.

Ensure continuous and sustainable water supply

If you have seasonal variations in your water supply, diversifying your water intake sources can be a good solution. Xylem can help you implement this with boreholes pumps for groundwater uptake, large pumps for open intakes, and dewatering pumps for seasonal water transfer.

Monitor of the quality of the water supply

To ensure efficient water treatment downstream, utilities need to ensure their intake for clean water is of the highest quality possible. We help you solve this with monitoring equipment that detects harmful algal blooms and industrial pollution. Our analytics solutions help you adjust your water intake to maintain a continuous provision of drinking water.

Minimize operating cost in water intake

Optimizing your operating costs depends mostly on your ability to reduce energy and plan preventive maintenance. To help you with this, Xylem provides clean water pumps designed with the highest motor and hydraulic efficiencies. The use of adjacent hydro-turbines can also provide sustainable power generation.
