The Early Blockage Detector is a module in Intelligent Sewer Suite which detects rapid forming restrictions and blockages across sewer networks before they turn into a network outage. It provides a platform to monitor all sewers in a network using existing level and flow sensors.
By using the StormHarvester Early Blockage Detector, duty controllers will no longer be overwhelmed by the high numbers of control room alarms during wet weather events.
This module silences alarms for consented events and only provides alarms/alerts for unconsented events so maintenance crews can quickly be directed to incidents of greatest impact. This enhances the controller’s ability to deploy operational resources to best effect, minimising network outages.
