Our Water Infrastructure Conference Sessions

Planning to Meet Increased Water and Wastewater Demands

  • Moderator: Bill Lloyd

In many areas, water and wastewater demands are growing and supplies are becoming more uncertain. This session will highlight how some communities are using comprehensive long-term planning and innovative approaches to meet projected water and wastewater demands.

Long-Term Reuse Program Planning in Cheyenne, Wyoming

  • Speaker: Wesley Oehmig
  • Co-Author: Brandon Gabhart

Since 2007, the City of Cheyenne has practiced water reuse through a system designed to deliver reclaimed water to irrigation users. To date, they have recycled approximately 500 acre-ft per year, but long-term supply and demand projections have motivated the expansion of this system to reuse more water and diversify the City's water portfolio. This study identified four pathways by which the City could increase its reuse infrastructure and offset the use of additional potable water. This implementation plan identified new users and estimated life cycle costs for eight capital projects and two studies.

Regional Water System Continuity — Leveraging a Regional Water System Model to Improve Emergency Response Planning

  • Speakers: Kevin Plemmons and Tina Whitfield

Learn about the development of a regional model that included facilities in four counties to evaluate several outage scenarios that will determine water supply in the event of an emergency and highlights the importance of communicating in such an event.

The Well-Informed Asset Management Program: Applying Information Technology to Reduce SSOs

  • Speaker: Bill Lloyd

The San Antonio Water System has integrated several information technologies to comply with a Federal Environmental Protection Agency Consent Decree for collection system sanitary sewer overflow reduction. These technologies organize asset, condition, capacity, risk, operations, financial, and project data to support operations improvement, proactive maintenance, and multi-year asset renewal planning and execution. These tools have helped support 50% SSO reduction over 4 years and plan more than $1 billion in capacity and condition-driven asset renewal projects.
