AMS Talks: The Environmental Impact of Abandoned Mines

In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, and Marcie Demmy Bidwell, Executive Director for the Mountain Studies Institute in Colorado, discuss the environmental impact of abandoned mines and efforts to protect water quality. Colorado has roughly 23,000 abandoned mines. Because of the financial scale of this challenge and the existential threat posed by these mines to human health and the environment, Bacon and Bidwell discuss the importance of bringing together the voice of governments, mining companies, and technology solution providers to share ideas and work together toward a solution to this pressing issue.

AMS Radio: Why Water Treatment Systems Need A Brain

Listen to the latest podcast from AMS Radio featuring Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, who discusses why water treatment systems are inherently stupid and they need a brain. As water utilities are increasingly turning to real-time data to identify contaminant threats and diagnose critical treatment system performance once a solution has been put in place, online and real-time water quality analyzers contribute to the development of intelligent water treatment systems.

AMS Delivers Real-Time Water Quality Data and Remediation Solutions to California Utilities

A study released by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), found that a mix of pollutants in California drinking water could cause an estimated 15,500 additional cases of cancer over the course of a lifetime. While concerns about water quality and safety continue to grow, it is important to note that a number of California utilities are already implementing real-time, online monitoring to determine the presence of water-borne contaminants of concern and ensure drinking water safety at all times. AMS is helping these utilities to not only identify THM and trace metal contaminant threats, but also to diagnose critical treatment system performance once a solution has been put in place.
