SPEAKERS: Jay Boyd and Kevin Enfinger, P.E.  
Blockages are a leading cause of sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs), often resulting from grease, roots, and debris build-up. As a key focus of managers and supervisors, collection system O&M maintenance processes are built around their prevention and can consume as much as 60% of the operations budget. Faced with limitations to funding, personnel and time, utilities seeking relief have adopted more sustainable and productive technology-based solutions that alleviate these limitations and improve SSO prevention. This technology-based O&M solution, its supporting technology, and its positive financial impact is presented in a two-part webinar series appropriate for directors, managers and supervisors.

For over four decades ADS has provided trusted solutions to critical wastewater problems:
  • Blockage prediction and overflow prevention
  • Sewer cleaning optimization
  • Wet weather management
  • I/I analysis and reduction
  • Accurate billing data
  • Hydraulic model calibration

Collection System Software Platform

PRISM™ is ADS’s revolutionary new web software platform that puts critical data at your fingertips to support management, engineering, and operational decisions within your wastewater collection system. PRISM connects your flow, level, or rainfall monitoring network, delivering near real-time operational intelligence on the status of your wastewater collection system. Learn more about PRISM…

The ADS PRISM™ platform has specialized web apps designed to help you focus on specific collection system challenges – leveraging the power of seamless data integration, trusted analytics, and flexible reporting in a single, unified platform.


The blockage PREDICT™ app combines machine learning and predictive analytics to predict developing sewer blockages with sufficient advance notice to plan a proactive response with the right resources at the right time to prevent an overflow well before it occurs.

The ADS ECHO level monitor provides continuous visibility into the wastewater collection system. It is part of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) and monitors critical points where real-time data deliver meaningful value. It takes continuous measurements from remote sites and communicates wirelessly to a cloud-based system, where data is securely hosted. From there, software analytics provide users with actionable insight into their collection systems to drive decisions.

Tulsa, OK Case Study

“Based on the performance of the first five ECHOs, we purchased another 11 ECHOs to be installed by the end of 2017. We are so pleased with the results
that we plan to greatly expand the program in the next budget cycle.”

St. Louis, MO Case Study

“We recently installed an ADS ECHO at one of our CSOs and have already reduced our field inspections by 67%. The ECHO alerts our crews directly when the flow has reached a certain level so that they can respond and prevent dry weather bypasses. We have identified other “problem” CSOs in our system and are in the process of installing additional ECHOs so that we can further reduce manual inspections while eliminating the possibility of dry-weather bypasses.”

The Voice of our Customers...

Sydney Water has trialed the AV|GATED sensor at four of our long-term compliance locations across Sydney. ADS’s AV|GATED sensor is a well-designed, purpose built velocity sensor that will increase the quality of our flow monitoring data. Our testing has confirmed the accuracy of the AV|GATED velocity data against established and in-field measurements.

Sydney Water – NSW Australia Craig Earl

The local ADS office has been essential to the success of our flow monitoring program. They have gone above and beyond to provide high quality flow monitoring data that helps us determine project effectiveness, maintain Consent Decree compliance, and monitor the overall status of our collection system.

St. Louis MSD James Kauffman

We are very pleased with your analysis and your report is one of the most comprehensive on sewer flow monitoring that I have seen for a long time. The overall experience working with the ADS team was great.

Town of Hillsborough, CA Javad Ghaffari

We have conducted both permanent monitoring and temporary monitoring projects with ADS Environmental Services and have been very pleased with their work. I highly recommend ADS for flow monitoring, field services and data analysis.

Nashville Metro Water Services Cyrus Toosi

ADS level monitoring technology has provided real-time visibility into the LFUCG system while reducing labor-intensive wet weather inspections.  We are saving over $40,000 annually after switching to a level monitoring system by eliminating unnecessary field operations.

Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Chase Azevedo

We choose ADS because we feel they have a better flow monitoring system. They have met and exceeded all our expectations, especially on the software end, with their new Web-hosted systems.
