Water Quality

Mounting public outcry and new state regulations are compelling water & wastewater utilities to address health risks associated with lead service lines, contaminants of emerging concern, and legionella. As a result, companies across the value chain are looking to address the range of water quality issues.

Bluefield helps address key trends impacting your business…

New U.S. Administration prioritizes lead service line replacement

Many cities and municipalities are feeling a renewed sense of urgency around lead service lines. Bluefield estimates some 6.1 million LSLs remain in the ground across the U.S., serving between 15 million and 22 million people. Analysis shows that full replacement will require $32+ billion, driven by ten states that account for approximately 65% of the replacement market value. >>Learn More

PFAS in drinking water necessitate investment in advanced treatment

To date, 1,400 industrial and commercial sites have been identified in 49 U.S. states with varying amounts of PFAS contamination. In evaluating the market state-by-state at this early stage, Bluefield’s more conservative forecast exceeds US$3 billion, annually, to remediate U.S. municipal drinking water supplies over the next decade. >>Learn More

Climate change increases incidences of algae blooms, threatening drinking water supplies

Going forward, signals (e.g. temperature, nutrient runoff, larger storm events) indicate Cyanobacterial Harmful Algal Blooms (CyanoHABs) will increase in prevalence and intensity beyond the southern states. Bluefield anticipates that over half of U.S. lakes and reservoirs will be affected by 2022. With over 140 million people served by surface water in the U.S., monitoring for and treating cyanotoxins is an inescapable reality for community water systems. >>Learn More

Europe Drinking Water Directive

With the EU’s revised Drinking Water Directive entering into force, member States have until January 2023 to transpose the revised Directive into their national legislation. The Directive, first introduced in 1998, lays down the essential quality standards across the EU level: a total of 48 microbiological, chemical, and indicator parameters must be monitored and tested regularly. >>Learn More
