sewer flow monitoring

Augusta Sanitary Sewer Flow Monitoring Consent Order/Rehabilitation

McKim & Creed field crews mobilized in the Glass Factory Drainage Basin of the City of Augusta to install sewer flow monitoring equipment. The goal of this effort was to help determine the impact of wet weather events on the gravity wastewater collection/conveyance system and to verify locations where the wastewater system is connected to the storm water system at conflict structures. Open channel flow monitoring of the wastewater collection system was planned at 19 locations and at three storm water system locations. As wet weather flow data was recorded at the 22 sites and the impact of several rainfall events was ascertained on the levels of increased flow within the systems, the monitoring equipment may be relocated to help pinpoint where the extraneous wet weather volumes are originating. Rainfall gauging was performed concurrently with the flow monitoring activities to establish the magnitude and duration of the wet weather events during the monitoring period.
