Reliability Impact in the Water and Wastewater Industry

Water and wastewater treatment plants are critical infrastructure systems for our communities. These facilities must meet strict federal and state regulatory requirements while balancing the costs of aging infrastructure on a limited budget. Additionally, these facilities face the challenge of increasing demand for water treatment services, putting additional pressure on their systems. According to the ASCE 2017 Infrastructure Report Card for Wastewater, more than 56 million new people will depend on public treatment systems, requiring more than $270 billion to meet future demands.

As wastewater facilities continue to adjust to the increasing demand with aging infrastructure, reliability becomes a key factor in helping facilities avoid operational failure. We take our experience from working with some of the most complex industrial facilities and translate that knowledge into more efficient and more sustainable operations for the water and wastewater industries. Through data-backed optimization we avoid process interruptions, budget exceedances and effluent violations, preserving your utilities goodwill with the public. We resolve the issues that keep you up at night.

Reliability Confidence at Every Stage

We meet our customers at whatever stage they fall in to help them navigate forward with confidence.

We can use the right modeling approaches to optimize design for the entire lifecycle with reliability in mind. In the build or startup phase, we can support from a reliability perspective, ensuring the customer is confident in their reliability strategy from startup.

Fundamentals vary based on the facility and specific needs. We use a data-driven approach to ensure the customer is getting the right fundamentals in place that work for them, which can include technology selection, people and process, data and documentation management, and modeling.

There is no shortage of initiatives in today’s market. We use a data-driven approach to identify value opportunities and bring them to reality. Objectives range from reduced reliability spend to process safety risk reduction.

In the post-transformation stage, we help our customers sustain the transformations they have achieved and continue to improve their programs quarter by quarter, year over year. This can range from reliability engineering support to the full outsourcing of reliability functions.

Newton™

Newton™ connects all of your data and systems, allowing you to see each data point from one platform, analyze that data, and provide plans that drive quantifiable value at your facility.

Quantitative Reliability Optimization (QRO)

Quantitative Reliability Optimization (QRO) is the method by which every facet of system reliability is stochastically quantified, allowing operators to understand how every data point and activity impact overall facility performance, resulting in a continually evergreened comprehensive reliability plan to yield the highest return on reliability investment.

The Economics of Reliability Report

In our second Economics of Reliability Report, we dive into how the water and wastewater industries are affected by reliability today, proving reliability is a key differentiation between high and low performers. Read the report to learn more about how reliability is shaping the industry.
