Launceston, Tasmania boasts the largest combined sewage network in Australia. In a combined sewage network, stormwater and sewage are managed within the same system.
As a component of TasWater’s Launceston Sewerage Improvement Program (LSIP), TasWater partnered with ADS on the Launceston Network Flow Survey and Hydraulic Model Build and Calibration Project. This project delivered an accurate and predictive tool that will be used for planning and design of major projects within Launceston. The predictive tool improves understanding and operational intelligence of Launceston’s complex combined sewage network, which earned ADS and TasWater the Infrastructure Project Innovation Award at the Tasmanian Australian Water Association Awards in November, 2022.
