“Now Would Be a Good Time to Increase Fuel Taxes”

We’re continuing our countdown to Infrastructure Week with another interview—a very comprehensive look at the issues, with a lot of food for thought.

Water’s been scarce lately, and with the drought exacerbating problems throughout the Southwest, many cities are looking at spending more to get what they need. They can import water from long distances, mandate conservation measures (as the entire state of California has been doing for months), recycle wastewater, or turn

Construction industry experts were assembled to discuss market opinions, trends, outlooks and forecasts for 2015 and beyond. One of the presenters, W. Chris Daum, President

Desalination Plants Subject to Stainless Steel Corrosion

Desalination Plants Subject to Stainless Steel Corrosion

Stainless steel is widely used in critical components of drinking water, wastewater, water reuse, and desalination treatment and conveyance systems. Contrary to popular belief, stainless steel can be prone to failures due to corrosion, including microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC). In fact, utilities have had issues with chloride and chlorine corrosion
