Inflow & Infiltration
Tracking down locations in the collection system where high levels of Inflow and/or Infiltration is occurring is a high priority to utilities across the province. To get results the focus needs to shift from endless I&I studies to an I&I program that can produce tangible results. Our remote monitoring sensors are easy to deploy, require no confined space entry to install, and report back in near real-time. An added bonus with SmartCover's non-contact sensors being above the flow they are basically maintenance-free. SmartCover also integrates gauge-adjusted radar rainfall data, temperature data, and even river and tidal data all without requiring physical rain gauges such as tipping buckets which require constant maintenance. Utilizing the level & flow data and integrated precipitation data; the machine learning tools built-in automatically identify areas with the highest levels of I&I. Once focused areas are determined by SmartCover I&I impact report; CCTV inspection, smoke testing, or other preferred methods can be used to determine the direct source of the I&I.
