Optimizing Performance in the Collection System Workplace
Abstract:Wastewater utilities must routinely strive to increase collection system performance and prevent SSOs and backups while accommodating new development, managing aging infrastructure and workforce, stretching shrinking budgets and staff, and coping with tightening regulations. Given these demands, wastewater utilities are acting to ensure that their resources are being maximized for efficiency and effectiveness. An assessment of collection system performance combined with a review of operational strengths and weaknesses in the context of industry best practices can help the utility to focus investment on areas with the greatest rewards and opportunity for improvement.
