The demand for sanitary sewer system maintenance and flow monitoring has never been stronger, as municipalities bear the burden and expense of ever-stricter wastewater treatment standards. Sewer system degeneration, flaws and flow difficulties can all be detected with regular inspection. As a solution, municipalities can take preventative measures to preserve their sanitary sewage systems in good working order and avoid costly repairs.
Flow monitoring involves the use of technology to read and record flow depth and rate in order to establish whether problems are caused by inflow, infiltration or both. It is possible to develop and create a sanitary sewer restoration technique to repair faults at specific sites using the data acquired. Following the completion of sewer rehabilitation, another round of flow monitoring is frequently important in demonstrating the efficacy of the changes. The existence, abundance and type of issues that occur inside a community’s sewer system can all be identified with proper sewer flow monitoring. Additionally, flow monitoring can help evaluate whether pipes are undersized at a given area, whether pipes need to be replaced and where leaks could cause major problems.
Inflow and infiltration can have a negative influence on the environment, cause regulatory concerns, raise treatment costs and cause your collection system to be overworked. Flow monitoring is the first initial step in determining where problems are occurring, which helps municipalities establish ongoing, proactive flow monitoring programs.
