Analytical Software Predicts Sewer System Blockages

By Andrew May, Nukon

Using historical data and Seeq analytical software, Nukon calculates when sewer blockages will occur up to 13 hours before occurrence, preventing spills.

Often the first notification of a spill comes from a member of the public, hours and sometimes days after the actual incident. Such late notice can intensify public health and environmental impacts, and increase the cost of cleanup efforts.

Following a sewer spill at an environmentally significant site at Midway Point in Tasmania in August 2017, the statewide water utility sought a way to reduce the likelihood and impact of future spill events. To do this, they needed a way to predict future sewage spills, with plenty of notice so preventive measures could be taken.
