Prefabricated lift stations are being developed increasingly, being light, easy and fast to install, capable of addressing individual requirements as well as those of communities or industries. Their design, their equipment and even the pumps, incorporate many innovations that reduce maintenance costs and improve operational safety. Source

Making water distribution or drainage networks smart involves fitting them out with sensors, recorders and actuating devices, gathering increasing numbers of data, and combining them with sophisticated IT tools, shared out or centralized, to offer the best possible overall view of the network. An integrated system of equipment like this opens the way to more efficient and faster-reacting control, and to the development of new functional features, like the optimization of electric power consumption. For the water distributing utility, it represents a major economic and regulatory consideration, with, as a spinoff, a promise of extended services to consumers. Source

These devices are now well defined in legislation. They help to protect water resources against chronic pollution. Separators are intended for use on sites where large quantities of hydrocarbons are present, traps for ordinary rainwater to separate out particles. Their day-to-day efficiency depends on their proper functioning, and therefore their maintenance. Source

The increasing use of turbidity measurements, particularly in-line, results from the need to better monitor water or fluid quality in industrial processes. It is also promoted via the development of recorders and modes of communication that now provide remote access to data. Consequently, the market is driven by innovations mainly impacting versatility and maintenance conditions for this standards-based technology. Source

Whether well-established or just beginning, the implementation of network asset management provides better knowledge of the overall condition of structures and pipes, enabling repairs or renewals to be better targeted, thus avoiding the excess costs associated with emergency work. This type of management is based on an asset inventory combined with archived operating data providing an indication of its condition: leaks and pipe inspection results. This approach can be very cumbersome if performed all at once. It can, however, be conducted progressively, becoming rapidly efficient when the guidelines and assistance, provided by certain asset management tools or design offices, are followed. Source
