7-31-23 SMART INVITATIONS FOR WATER

This Week 7-31-23: Smart Innovations for Water WELCOME NEW MEMBERS! Congratulations to our new Ambassadors and say “hello” to our newest members: Sandy Likus (Illinois), David Husemoller (Illinois), Charles Danyus (Illinois), Constance Wiggins (Illinois), Karen & Bob Loess (Illinois) NEWS WORTH SHARING: This beautiful story board explains how Florida’s coastal wetlands are threatened, but are being restored to increase resilience.

TO KNOW: Amir Cahn, Executive Director of Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN), the leading global hub for the smart water and wastewater sectors. He is a collaborator with Global Water Works on the expansion of SWAN into North America. Amir just published his PhD thesis paper: Adoption of data-as-a-service by water and wastewater utilities. Congrats!


THIS WEEK’S POLL: Rather than a poll this week, we invite you to browse the perspectives of eight lake lovers, who spoke up at a recent Lake County board meeting giving reasons to invest in nature-based solutions to address non-point source water pollution (muck).



WONDER OF WATER: Want to know the “new future” of water? Check out NEOM, whose name means just that. See how water is managed in an area of relative scarcity to create abundance. Gigi Karmous-Edwards helped organize a team to intelligently design this futuristic city’s water operations. TECH TALK: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming useful in many areas of water

and wastewater treatment. In this interview Bob Crossen, Senior Managing Editor for Wastewater Digest, learns how the Delaware County Regional Water Quality Control Authority (Delcora) used AI to optimize blower operation, reducing energy use and cost while improving plant performance.

FUN WITH WATER: H2O Global News captures the fun journey of the Lake County Lake Lovers in this #LakeAppreciationMonth feature on the movement started just a year ago in the headquarters county of Global Water Works. WATER FROM AIR: Systems that extract water from the air are becoming more

. A recent study shows the use of these water from air systems has negligible impact on the atmospheric water reservoir.
