  • Study Shows Huge Variation in Fracking Operations' Thirst

    The first national-scale analysis of hydraulic fracturing water usage found that water volumes averaged within watersheds across the United States range from as little as 2,600 gallons to as much as 9.7 million gallons per well.

  • Several Agencies Announce Additional Resilient Lands and Waters Initiatives Sites

    Under the new Resilient Landscape partnerships that were announced by President Obama a little more than two months ago, the DOI, USDA, EPA, NOAA, and USACE have launched new Resilient Lands and Waters sites in California and Montana/British Columbia.

    The Department of the Interior (DOI), Department of Agriculture (USDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) recently recognized three new collaborative landscape partnerships across the country, which will help prepare natural resources combat climate change.

  • EPA Revising USTs Regulation

    "These changes will better protect people's health and benefit the environment in communities across the country by improving prevention and detection of underground storage tank releases," said Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator of EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response.

  • New Report Details Toxic Water Pollution from Power Plants

    The study presents evidence that EPA has been underestimating the public health benefits of controlling metals including arsenic and hexavalent chromium (which can increase the risk of cancer), as well as lead and mercury (which can cause brain damage) released by power plants into rivers, streams, and lakes.

  • Monsal Biosolids Technology Helps Idaho City Meet Sludge Disposal Requirements

    Rexburg’s wastewater treatment plant will use GE system to treat sludge prior to disposal.

  • Lean Water Operations

    How to control the cost and pricing of water while improving efficiency.

  • Thinking Differently About Water

    What is the value of water? It turns out that the answer to that question is not straightforward. While the element water - two hydrogen atoms attached to one oxygen atom - is simple, water as a resource is highly complex and filled with contradictions. Water is abundant yet scarce; priceless yet “free,” life-sustaining yet if contaminated, life-threatening.

  • Investing in Wastewater Treatment Upgrades: Boosting the Triple Bottom Line

    Johnson Controls explains how projects that improve wastewater treatment infrastructure can increase operating efficiency, help the local environment, provide economic benefits, improve the reliability of compliance, and enhance the community’s quality of life. Cities and water authorities can attain these benefits without investing their own capital up front and yet earn immediate long-term guaranteed cost savings.
