I&I Micro Detection: Pinpointing Inflow and Infiltration Simply
The schedule and timing of individual presentations within a session is subject to change based on the actual length of each presentation. Contact hours are awarded for attendance at the session and will be given for the actual length of the session.
What we are here to share is microdetection technology. The purpose of this technology is to “pinpoint the contributors of inflow and infiltration within adjacent manholes.” We do this by deploying our iTracker level sensors within the basin. Through data gathering and our auto analytics platform, we are able to link the iTrackers to determine the Rain Derived Inflow & Infiltration in particular pipelines. We see too often that utilities spend millions of dollars analyzing their system (paralysis through analysis) and at the end of the study, all they have is a beautiful document telling them that they have I&I but what they don’t have is the system fixed. That’s because 80% of a collection system’s I&I comes from only 20% of the lines. So the question is, how do we quickly and cost effectively narrow in on that 20%?
The objective is to educate on the advanced I&I Detection Technology that has become available.
