Miami-Dade County Water & Sewer Deploys Modern Wastewater Solution

As IoT solutions continue to innovate and pave the way for better energy and water management, The Avanti Company is proud of its role in helping spearhead these solutions. We recently collaborated with the American technology company Itron and Utility Systems Science & Software (US3) to deploy the initial phase of a wastewater management solution for the Miami-Dade County Water & Sewer Department (WASD).

Miami-Dade serves nearly three million residents and remains focused on its mission to evaluate, rehabilitate, and better its wastewater pump stations in compliance with the regulations of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for pump stations.

Avanti and Itron have worked alongside Miami-Dade to devise a solution for its Flow Reduction Program to assure compliance with EPA regulations and create a better service. WASD implemented a one-of-a-kind solution with real-time data from the wastewater flow sensors from US3 and Itron’s outcome-based IoT for essential infrastructure operators. The result is a more accurate and comprehensive view of the flow of wastewater across the basin to lessen sewer overflows while cutting down on risks to public health. The solution also provides substantial operational performance and brings down greenhouse gas emissions caused by truck rolls needed for field surveys by over sixty percent.

Should You Choose a Flow Straightener or Straightening Vane?

In parallel with propeller meters, straightening vanes and flow straighteners have become a significant component of flow calculation in the agricultural industry, and with an important purpose. Flow straighteners and vanes, usually mounted close to flow disturbers or in short straight-run applications, minimize swirl and assist propeller meters in achieving a precise flow reading.
