Stopping Sanitary Sewer Overflows Before They Occur 
Power Hour Webinar IEPA#13030


CEU TYPE: Technical
IEPA#: 13030
IDEM#Applied for


Managing sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) is an ongoing concern for many sewer utilities, and while most have established plans to react when and where they occur, preventing them in the first place is the preferred solution.  Preventive sewer cleaning is the traditional approach to prevent SSOs caused by blockages.  While this approach is effective, it is not always efficient, as many sewers may be cleaned before there is a real need.  ADS has examined flow conditions within a variety of sewers to better understand leading indicators that can detect the earliest signs of blockages – allowing sewer cleaning resources to be deployed at the right place at the right time. 


Examples are provided to illustrate how sewer blockages develop, how much advance notice can be provided, and how emerging data science technologies are being applied for automatic detection and notification.  In one case study involving a location with a recurring blockage, sewer cleaning frequency was reduced by 92% over an 18-month study period.


Finally, a new solution and tool for validating the cleaning process will be discussed. This new technology gives users a powerful new tool that provides exceptional visual feedback for cleaning.
