Going from Reactive to Proactive Combined Sewer Management

How to Take Control with Live Modeling

April 15, 2020 - 7am PT | 10am ET

There are 772 cities in the United States with Combined Sewer Systems (CSSs). All of them need to actively respond to Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) and adverse events during wet weather conditions. If they don’t, they run the risk of polluting waterways, facing costly consent orders from authorities, and crew safety.

Leading wastewater collection utilities are taking on the challenge of CSS management by activating sensor data and hydraulic planning models for proactive sewer collection system analysis.

Join us to learn how you can use real-time, operational modeling for forecasting of CSS performance, and how you can accelerate your organization’s move to live modeling.

Along with an interactive Q+A session, you’ll gain insight into how you can:

  • Bring together scattered data sets
  • Flexibly handle unreliable sensor data
  • Achieve prompt model run times
  • Nest together varying model resolutions
  • Automate the conversion of model results into fast intelligence

We’ll share globally applicable case studies on how live modeling was deployed as a multi-faceted decision support system. You’ll leave with key learnings on how to leave reactivity behind when managing your combined sewer system.

Pascal is the Product Manager for Innovyze’s integrated catchment modelling (ICM) solutions, InfoWorks ICM and ICMLive. After initially working at Innovyze as a technical support engineer he went on to gain valuable experience fulfilling key roles in two key water utilities. First as a water supply strategic planner for Scottish Water, and then as Infrastructure Planning Specialist and ultimately Wastewater Infrastructure Modelling Manager for Thames Water. While at Thames Water he was key in implementing ICMLive as an operational support tool and embedding this within business processes. Pascal returned to Innovyze in 2018.
