PennWell Publishing, the publisher of Industrial WaterWorld, has updated its water-oriented website, www.industrialww.com to include a host of new features and information for the worldwide water market.
The site features current issues and archives for Industrial WaterWorld. It also serves as the Home Page for WaterWorld, which targets the municipal water/wastewater market in the United States and Canada, and Water & Wastewater International, which serves the water market outside the United States.
The newly redesigned industrialww.com is an online resource that provides daily international business and water industry-related news, current issue articles, and access to years of searchable editorial archives. Visitors to the site can check the calendar of events for the next industry-related conference, or refer to the Product Guide for vendor, product and service information.
Along with daily news and archives, the site also includes Case Studies that highlight the use of equipment and technologies to solve operating challenges for water/wastewater system operators.
A new feature is the site's Discussion Forums. The forums, which are open to registered users, include Industrial Water Topics, Drinking Water Treatment, Wastewater Treatment, Security Issues, Distribution System Issues, Collection System Issues, and International Water Topics.
A For Sale/Trade Forum has also been established for users who have surplus water treatment equipment for sale. Postings are free, but the forum is only open to private sales of water-related equipment -- no equipment vendors, please.
Registering to use the industrialww.com site is a one-time, free process that allows users to take advantage of all aspects of the site, including archive searches and downloads.
