Wastewater utilities face difficult operational challenges when timely decisions are needed for events associated with a range of conditions, from normal operation to sewer overflows, blockages, and network power outages. You not only need a good sense of what is happening in your network right now, but also the ability to accurately predict what is about to happen, and how to respond to achieve the best possible outcome.
OpenFlows SewerOPS provides utility engineers and operators real-time operational and optioneering decision support, allowing you to deploy live simulations to optimize existing and forecasted collection system performance. Combining hydraulic model results and live SCADA and telemetry data provides alerts for network anomalies, including overflows and backups. You can visualize what's happening between monitored locations and predict future system performance instead of waiting for your SCADA system to alert you.
With OpenFlows SewerOPS, operational departments can prepare for inclement weather. Be ready when storm events exceed the capacity of the collection system by using integrated OpenFlows FLOOD models to calculate the extent of sewer overflows.
OpenFlows SewerOPS requires an existing hydraulic model built on OpenFlows SewerGEMS, OpenFlows SewerCAD, or EPA SWMM. Analysis of 2D overland flow requires a 2D hydraulic model built on OpenFlows FLOOD.
