Abstract

The research examined current and future states of the use of advanced sensors (those that monitor, collect, and transfer measurements in near real-time and can be remotely deployed) in urban sewersheds to solve critical problems for the industry. The use of sensors not only at WRRFs, but also in receiving waters and sewersheds, can help reduce capacity issues, I&I, and CSOs, and assist in asset management and identification of aging infrastructure within the network. This research identified innovative system applications and outcomes taking place within the water industry. Published by WRF. 262 pages. Online PDF. (2018)
