The severity and impact of the drought remains top-of-mind among Californians. They are eager for long-term solutions that can help the state to achieve a water-secure future. California residents are overwhelmingly supportive of using treated wastewater, or recycled water, in their everyday lives, according to a statewide survey released today by Xylem, Inc. The survey found that 76% of respondents believe recycled water should be used as a long-term solution for managing water resources, regardless of whether or not a water shortage continues.
Xylem Inc. announced that it has acquired MultiTrode Pty Ltd., a privately held Australia-based water and wastewater technology and services company, for approximately $26 million. The actual terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Xylem Inc. will showcase its range of Godwin portable pumps featuring Flygt N-technology at the Bauma International Trade Fair, April 15 to 21, 2013, in Munich, Germany. The new range, Xylem’s Godwin NC-Series, is engineered to deliver clog-free pumping for maximum uptime and effectiveness.
Xylem also announced that it will unveil a new submersible dewatering pump range at the show; comprising four new pumps ranging from 4 to 18 kW. The new range is ideal for water removal in mining, tunneling and other harsh dewatering conditions.
