INTEGRATED COLLECTION SYSTEMS MODEL SAVES MILLIONS
Abstract:With its in-house hydraulic model, County Sanitation District 1, along with the regional “wholesale” agency, was able to quickly provide a solution to a potential development moratorium, to re-evaluate dynamic hydraulic model assumptions, to provide justification for refinement of these assumptions, and to eliminate the need for an $8 million expenditure. These critical steps allowed staff to refine the model to address situations where predicted overflows were identified and to reevaluate the need for capital expenditures on sewer relief projects. The result of this process translates to increased efficiency, accurate and quick adaptability, and a savings of millions of dollars.
