Automating for Smart Water

“Smart Water” is the theme for our 2013 symposium, which will look at ways SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems can be used to help plants improve operations and protect our shared water resources. Attendees will learn how to drive better plant visualization, improve situational awareness, optimize operations and maintenance, and reduce energy costs.

Happy Birthday Activated Sludge!

In 1913, H.W. Clark and S. De M. Gage reported results of studies on the purification of sewage using aeration.
