Utilities devote about 60 percent of their budgets to wastewater on average, versus 40 percent for drinking water. The EPA reports that the United States is experiencing 23,000 to more than 70,000 sewage overflow events a year across its 700,000+ miles of public sewer lines and 500,000 miles of private lateral lines, despite budgetary emphasis. By 2023, these systems will be utilized by nearly 60 million more people.
For utilities working with wastewater, real-time data is the first line of protection. A data network acts as a gateway into essential activities, enabling workers to maximize equipment efficiency and anticipate risks. It is also also the most cost-effective solution: in many situations, utilities already have many of the key elements for an actionable data system for more informed decisions. A firm data base also paves the way for progressive cloud analytics to be leveraged, internal applications to be installed or new services to be developed.
The wastewater industry faces momentous challenges. Such utilities will continue to operate with an aging infrastructure that needs maintenance and investment, while increased regulatory oversight means potentially hefty fines. By having up-to-date, accurate data, however, utilities today can improve real-time operations of their facilities in order to function more effectively and to avoid spill events.
