I/I is a problem as it can cause basement sewage backups, sewer overflows, excess pumping, storage, and treatment issues for the wastewater treatment plant. Flow monitoring will identify areas within the city where excess flow is most prevalent, allowing DMU to address these areas proactively.
After processing the data collected, results will yield a comprehensive report, prioritizing where rehabilitation measures will improve the Denison collection system. Recommendations on implementing further studies, including SSES inspections or hydraulic modeling, will also be suggested. The flow monitoring program will help the utility prioritize areas for rehabilitation to ensure funds are spent in a cost-effective manner. Scheduled to begin this spring, the flow monitors will remain in place for 12 weeks.
