Xylem podcast ‘Through the Water Cycle’ dives into new series
New 2020 episodes address opportunities during changing times
Charlotte, N.C. – “Through the Water Cycle,” on Solving Water: A Xylem Podcast, recently entered its second series, taking on trending issues in the ever-changing water industry, such as the shifting economic arena, impacts of COVID-19 and the opportunity for water utilities in extraordinary times. “Through the Water Cycle” is a podcast show providing information to water industry experts and consumers alike to better understand critical water issues and how Xylem and its partners are solving them.
“As the world faces more intense challenges that threaten the safety and security of water in our communities, Xylem’s innovative approach to solving water should be shared now more than ever,” said Amanda Holloway, Solving Water podcast host and PR & Social Media Leader, Xylem Americas. “This series highlights how Xylem is proactively addressing current issues facing the water industry, such as the impact of an historic hurricane season on water utilities and how to combat ‘forever chemicals’ in water.”
A special three-part program, “Making These Extraordinary Times an Opportunity for Water Utilities,” recorded during the all-virtual WEFTEC 2020 features Xylem President and CEO Patrick Decker and Al Cho, Xylem vice president and general manager, sharing their perspectives on the significance of strong partnerships and advanced innovation in creating the water utility of the future.
Another installment of the series spotlights two of Xylem’s newest leaders — Matthew Pine, senior vice president and president of Applied Water Systems and the Americas Commercial Team, and Joe Johnston, vice president of water infrastructure for Xylem North America — as they discuss unlocking opportunities for resilience in the water utilities sector.
In the third part, Xylem experts Kerry Hubbard, outdoor water monitoring specialist, and Anthony Rohrer, associate product manager, water quality, reveal how Xylem is helping institutions and water utilities worldwide use wastewater sampling to track possible future COVID-19 outbreaks.
“Through the Water Cycle” also includes a two-part series on Permanent and Temporary Non-Clog Solutions, a discussion addressing the escalation of clogging challenges in municipal wastewater treatment plants due to the surge in non-flushable materials resulting from COVID-19 and safer-at-home orders. Additional episodes focus on water reuse, treatment and transport, monitoring and controls, stressed water supply, stormwater and flooding management, and resiliency.
