A conversation with water experts

At Qatium, we’re fortunate to work with some of the world’s leading water experts. We decided to kick-off the year with an inside view of our product discussions.

Special thanks to Luke Butler, Newsha Ajami, PhD, David Monteiro, Pilar Conejos, PhD and the other Qatium experts for their questions and contributions!

Expanded demand spikes

See the impact of extra demand to a junction on your network for fireflow analysis, new developments and any other purpose.

Improved watermain shutdowns

Know what valves you need to operate to isolate a pipe and what customers are impacted. Find out how to limit the number of customers without water and inadequate pressures.

What else is going on?

 

With the “once-in-a-generation” Infrastructure Deal in the US set to unlock a wave of much needed infrastructure rehabilitation and upgrades, will it be enough to make America’s water great again?

Abundance in Times of Scarcity: Water Strategy in the US

Tune in to the second episode of Q Talks, a new monthly series of bite-sized conversations that you can watch live or on demand.

With the “once-in-a-generation” Infrastructure Deal in the US set to unlock a wave of much needed infrastructure rehabilitation and upgrades, will it be enough to make America’s water great again?

Tom Freyberg hosts a frank and open discussion with Felicia Marcus, Jeffrey Kightlinger and Will Sarni.

Expert of the month

Jeffrey Kightlinger is the former General Manager and CEO of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the largest water utility in the United States of America serving 19 million people across Southern California. Jeff shares his views on digital transformation and the way forward for water utilities.

“The number one issue facing utilities going forward is climate change. It’s where the rubber hits the road for water utilities.”

Previously on Qatium

And in case you missed last month’s update, we extended GIS data support, improved the user onboarding experience and shared 10 Water Predictions for 2022.

We’ve come a long way together. None of this would have been possible without your support. Stay safe!
