Sewer Capacity Management

A valuable method for verifying sources of inflow & infiltration

 

Can your pipes and treatment facilities accommodate that proposed new high-rise development?

How drastic of a storm event can your sewer infrastructure tolerate before the phones start ringing with irate calls about backups and flooding?

Do we really need to invest in an expensive, new, wastewater treatment facility now, or, is it possible to get by for a few more years with our existing plant?

Your ability to make intelligent decisions about your storm water and sanitary sewer infrastructure is contingent upon having access to reliable, up-to-date data.

Civica Infrastructure Inc. is a leader in helping municipalities and regional authorities, and the engineers and consultants who support these organizations, to understand the current condition and capacity of their existing sewer infrastructure.

Using a combination of ultrasonic or pressure depth sensors and ultrasonic velocity sensing equipment as well as primary devices such as weirs and flumes, and, rain gauges, our expert team of experienced field professionals gathers enormous amounts of data about the volume and rate of flow through your sewer pipes. Then, using DataCurrent, our own purposefully-designed, data management software, our engineers are able to quickly analyze all of this data to identify potential problem areas within the sewer system with the potential for having a negative impact on the capacity of the system.

Our typical scope of work for a Sewer Capacity Analysis study includes:

  • Acquisition and review of the available population data, drainage area and sanitary sewer system information upstream and downstream of the target area
  • Evaluation of potential changes to the data and updating as required to account for new developments that may have occurred since the data was originally compiled
  • Review existing conditions and assess existing sanitary design flows from the site
  • Analysis of the system with updated data to represent conditions prior to any new proposed development
  • Review of any proposed development conditions with respect to sanitary flow generation and incorporating changes to reflect proposed population, drainage area, and other land uses prior to establishing the design flow from the site
  • Re-evaluation of sanitary system capacity based on proposed conditions
  • Preparation of a preliminary result memo for team review
  • Receive comments from stakeholders and adjust as necessary to prepare final memo for submission to the senior managers. This memo typically includes capacity assessment, sewer hydraulic gradeline (HGL) profiles and thematic maps.
