Lessons Learned from Three Decades of I/I Work

Thursday, June 23, 2022 12N EDT, 11am CDT, 10am MDT, 9am PDT
Patrick has spent more than 50 years in the wastewater and collection system engineering field as a Regulator, an Owner and a Consultant. Thirty of those years have been devoted to Infiltration & Inflow (I/I) and over that time many Rules-of-Thumb and Tricks-of-the-Trade have been formulated and refined by asking Project Managers, “If you could do this project over, what would you do differently?” This webinar will address several of these issues including: (1) a strategy for meter placement to achieve a uniform basin size and get maximum information, (2) a strategy for assuring a successful pre- and post-rehabilitation metering program, and (3) best and worst methods for quantifying and normalizing I/I.
For interested webinar participants, ADS will provide documentation for professional development hours, subject to the following conditions and limitations:
  • You must register individually and sign-in individually to the webinar, so that we have a means to validate your attendance and participation for continuing education purposes.
  • Most organizations do not specifically approve continuing education providers. However, it is your responsibility to determine whether this webinar meets guidelines set forth by any particular organization.

Assessing Sewer Performance Based on Sewer Design Guidelines

Thursday, May 26, 2022 12N EDT, 11am CDT, 10am MDT, 9am PDT

Sewer flow monitoring provides insight into sewer performance, and that insight is often revealed where it intersects related activities that provide additional perspective and context to flow measurements.  Sewer design represents one such point of intersection.  Wastewater engineers use various guidelines to design new sewers.  These guidelines are well-accepted and well-understood.  As such, they can also be applied as Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to evaluate the performance of existing sewers by evaluating flow monitor data with respect to them.  This webinar discusses several KPIs adapted from sewer design guidelines, shows how to use them to evaluate the performance of existing sewers, and illustrates actionable insights revealed from them.
