StormHarvester and Northumbrian Water have worked together since early 2018 to analyse pumping chambers in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in Northern England. This discrete network was chosen due to the location of CSO’s and pumping chambers within the Catchment and past rainfall events in the area.
Three years of data from 12 pumping chambers and CSOs were analysed using the StormHarvester software suite. The analysis allowed Northumbrian Water to easily visualise their network performance and quickly identify, quantify and rank assets to see how they were performing or if they had particular sensitivities to rainfall.
The results of the analysis determined that on average a 30% reduction in CSO spillages was achievable across the catchment using StormHarvester’s real time controls.
“The StormHarvester product suite allowed us to easily visualise historic data from a section of our waste water network. It allowed us to assess our network performance and quickly identify sites with particular sensitivities to rainfall. The StormHarvester team were easy to work with and have always been quick to respond and adopt to our particular requirements”
