Recent Water Market Challenges and Trends

Many countries from different parts of the world highly regard water systems resiliency and sustainability as one of the most crucial challenges the water industry faces. Among the sophisticated and interrelated issues that these countries have encountered are climate change, evolving regulations and technologies, population growth, and water pollution. 
Fortunately, the interconnectivity of these issues has led to the concept of a unified water management approach.
Unified water management is crucial to resolving …

Engineers As Modern-Day Heroes

The increased dependence of organizations on data and technology has catapulted engineers into obtaining a newfound status as heroes in these modern times due to their wide range of technical capabilities. 
However, one question remains: “How does an engineer play a pivotal role in giving back to the pandemic-laden community, especially during this digital age?”
Communities nowadays will require welfare prioritization from a sustainability point of view, and it’s no surprise that engineers will …

Modern PFAS Treatment Considerations

A few states have ultimately decided that risks attributed to emerging contaminant compounds like per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are sufficiently high to warrant amendments to their respective policies and reporting regulations. Furthermore, acceptable levels even for drinking water will likely be affected, too.
At the moment, there are still limitations as far as PFAS-impacted water treatment is concerned. One of the only available treatment technologies, for now, is sorption through the use of activated carbon and/or ion exchange resins. …

Implementing a Human-Centric Transit Design

With the ongoing pandemic today, expect passenger numbers to stay low since commuters remain grounded in their movement from one place to another. Based on these recent trends, another solution must focus this time on improved passenger experience: human-centric design.
Human-centric public transit design refers to a brand new approach, with an emphasis on formulating solid and efficient solutions that provide commuters and operators with a mutual benefit, therefore promoting a sustainable community. In other words, the end-user is at the core of this “…

PFAS-Related Risk Management Trends

Soil may sometimes contain poly-fluoroalkyl substances or PFAS, among other contaminants, and in most cases, an infrastructure project construction demands substantial earthworks involving soil movement and management. Emerging compounds – especially PFAS – could have potentially unwanted regulatory implications for such a project and many others.
Unexpectedly, some risk management trends have emerged recently, highlighting how project and property owners can mitigate risks associated with PFAS. Here are a few.

Avoiding the Pitfalls of Environmental Requirements

Engineering projects are now growing in numbers, thanks to competition pushing companies for more efficiency and several mergers and acquisitions. With the rising number of projects along the way, companies are also aiming for cost efficiency.
Furthermore, just because an engineering design is cost-efficient, it doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed environmentally friendly. As a result, project owners and managers should consider meeting the environmental requirements for their projects, especially during their early design phases.
