The Allure of Level-Only Monitoring for I/I Webinar
AUGUST 27TH AT 11:00AM CsT (9:00AM PsT)
From the ancient Egyptian Nilometer to Robert Manning’s Manning Equation to Peter Petroff’s Doppler velocity sensor, humans have been seeking a way to quantify the flow of water by measuring its depth since civilization began.
New depth-only devices on the market today are being touted as new technologies for ‘chasing I/I’. Engineering and operations staff find them attractive because of their lower cost and no confined space entry. However, they rely on the Manning equation which was virtually abandoned 40 years ago in favor of depth-velocity flow meters in I/I work. These devices can be very useful and when used improperly can cause you to look for I/I in all the wrong places.
This webinar will provide case studies including an example of a successful way to implement depth-only metering and a side-by-side comparison of depth-only meters and depth-velocity meters in the same sewershed.

Lower Costs, Lower Risk – New Relief Through Optimized Cleaning
OCtober 8TH AT 11:00AM CsT (9:00AM PsT)
The decade’s old prescription of aggressive cleaning has worked to lower SSOs. Yet, aggressive cleaning means overcleaning and with it, unwanted side-effects. It stresses teams, exhausts municipal resources and prematurely damages pipes just to name a few.
New technologies are making it easier than ever to Optimize Cleaning and avoid these harmful side-effects all together. Attend my webinar to see how municipalities are embracing new technology to reduce cleaning by as much as 80% while continuing to safeguard their systems from SSOs.
