Still Finding Gold Out West: Re-evaluation of Santa Rosa Collection System Allows the City to Save Over 50 Million in Capital Upgrades
Abstract:Using a skeletal dynamic hydraulic model that incorporated real time controls (RTC) the City of Santa Rosa in Northern California, was able to optimize and improve their existing facilities eliminating the need for capital improvements recommended in their master plan, saving the City more than 50,000,000. The tools and methods used to optimize these facility operations can be applied in numerous other sanitary sewer systems potentially saving significant amounts of planned capital funding throughout the country.
