CITY OF WELLAND SANITARY SEWER FLOW MONITORING PROGRAM - PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Civica worked with Associated Engineering in a cross-functional team to provide the City of Welland with a monitoring network that aided in locating and identifying inflow and infiltration throughout the City. This monitoring network contained over eighty-five (85) Civica sanitary flow monitors and three (3) rain gauges over a 4-year period. Civica was responsible for installing, maintaining, removing, and relocating the flow monitors, as well as maintaining the network of rain gauges. The monitoring network had its live data sent to Civica’s DataCurrent website where it could be viewed, downloaded, and analyzed by City personnel.

Civica performed complex confined space entries, maintaining accurate flow measurements in chronic debris conditions, and was involved in the analysis and reporting of the flow and rainfall monitoring data. We performed detailed and regular Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) analysis in order to deliver accurate and successful reports. Civica was also responsible for monitoring multiple overflow locations in the City for reporting to the MECP.

The original project scope was for one (1) year but was extended to over four (4) years by the City of Welland.
