Project Scope:

Identifying Combined Sewage Overflow Patterns

StormSensorTM collected data at two locations during the preliminary Pilot Test. The Scutes™ provided reliable data sets that established baseline conditions at two tidally influenced locations and identified combined sewage overflows (CSOs). Data collected during the pilot test showed more frequent overflows than the current EPA SWMM model predicted, which suggests a need to further validate source data for future model runs.

Several opportunities to improve the ScuteTM sensors usability were identified. These modifications, including further waterproofing and the addition of forward/ reverse velocity measurements, will be applied to the next iteration of sensors, released to selected pilot consumers in September, 2018.
