19 Year-old Meters Equitably Distribute Excess I/I and Support Infrastructure Reinvestment
South Fayette Municipal Authority and three other contributing communities in Western Pennsylvania have been metering their flow for nineteen years in a unique agreement with Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN). This agreement evolved ten years ago into an escrow based arrangement which allows the communities to pay themselves through an escrow account and re-invest the excessive I/I payments into their own collection system. The ADS meters chosen for this arrangement have been accurately monitoring and reporting without dispute, replacement, or re-negotiation for almost two decades.
Over $1 Million Dollars Saved by Identifying I/I Issues
45 ADS flow monitors were located at the outfalls of 43 basins to conduct a flow assessment for the City of Santa Barbara. I/I was identified as being limited to 40% of the system and fieldwork was targeted to 10 of the 43 basins for further study and I/I analysis. This drastically reduced the amount of field work to be done and the timeframe in which the study could be conducted. It deferred and potentially eliminated over $1 million in expenses.
