Sewer overflows are a growing problem for cities around the world. With more severe rain events expected due to climate change, solving this critical water challenge is more important than ever. Doing so affordably is even harder. Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization is a real-time decision support system (RT-DSS) utilizing smart sewer technology that gives utilities a better view into the performance and capacity utilization of their existing sewer system assets. This allows utility leaders to optimize levels of service while saving money, reducing risk and protecting the environment.
Using a combination of sensors and weather data, digital twin technology and optimization algorithms, Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization helps utilities drastically reduce sewer overflow (CSO/ SSO), detect sewer blockages, minimize flooding events and identify sources of infiltration and inflow (I&I) to ensure regulatory compliance by leveraging existing infrastructure.
