About this book

Sanitary and combined sewer system design has become an increasingly automated process involving the use of computerized modeling tools, monitoring systems, and other "intelligent" systems. The use of automated "infrastructure management systems" now allows designers, managers, and operators to get continuous data feeds on sewer flows, levels, pressure measurements, and emergency information essential to improving system design. This is the first book to document the use of automated systems in sewer design and management. Featuring real-life examples illustrating how systems can be intelligently designed, the book also includes detailed, step-by-step guidance on how to procure and implement state-of-the-art sewer systems.


Evolution of Infrastructure Management: Modern Automation for the Sewer Systems. Basic Instrumentation and Fundamental Flow Measurement. System Layout: Choosing the Points of Interest. System Definition: Components of a Sewer Infrastructure. Hydrology and Climatic Effects on Infrastructures and Systems. Installation and Functions of the Monitoring System. Equipment and Service Selection. Use and Application of the Data. Enhancements to the Sewer Infrastructure Monitoring System. Funding and Justification of Sewer Infrastructure Management Systems. Bibliography. Index.
