Overview

Efficiently managing sewer networks in the future will require a change in the industry’s approach to network management with opportunities to:

  • Improve environmental compliance, reducing discharges from CSO’s,
  • Increase sewer capacity and save energy through cleaning and controlling networks on a live basis, and
  • Recover valuable energetic materials in the form of fat or FOG

Join us to explore this fascinating subject on a strategic and legislative basis.

Why attend

  • Discuss wastewater network resilience with strategic planners and asset managers
  • Discover potential control and data management solutions available for networks
  • Evaluate technologies and solutions for leakage prevention and detection
  • Review changes in the fields of bioaugmentation and resource recovery

Background

Since October 2011, Water and Sewerage companies (WaSC’s) have taken responsibility for private sewers and lateral drains that extend beyond private premises or combine flows from two residences. ‘Modern’ UK sewer infrastructure, designed to meet the challenges associated with the mid 19th Century are still in use today incorporating an extended web of infrastructure including Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO’s), pumping stations and intercepting sewers, built as populations expanded and environmental regulation changed.

The pan-UK combination of sewer systems vary in terms of age, type and populations served presents unique operational challenges within both the network and receiving wastewater treatment works, with issues including:

  • Septicity management and odour control
  • Fats, Oils, Grease and Rag control and resource recovery, and
  • Control and maintenance of the network

In 2010, some 75% of some 200,000 sewer blockages per annum were caused by Fats Oils and Grease (FOG) or accumulation of flushed wet-wipes and other ‘non-woven’ textiles, resulting in the flooding of some 3,000 homes per year. High profile recent incidents include a 64m long fatberg discovered in Sidmouth, and such occurrences are becoming more prevalent in sewer networks throughout the UK.

AMP7 creates opportunities to do more with the existing assets through assessment, planning, data analytics control and maintenance. This event will allow like minded industry professional to explore the subject on a technological and social basis.
