Tightened environmental regulation has meant increased scrutiny on combined sewer overflows (CSOs) in recent years, with the water and sewerage companies under pressure to reduce the frequency with which diluted sewage is spilled into the sea and watercourses in wet weather.

Whilst all CSO discharges may have historically been viewed as inevitable and unavoidable, hydraulic modelling technology can now go a long way to help utilities monitor, understand and predict when they will happen and to intervene accordingly.

This educational guide from Utility Week, in association with Innovyze, looks in detail at the problem of CSO spills, how technology can help address the issue and the various other benefits that can be gained through the use of sewer modelling.

This report includes detailed case studies from Anglian Water and Thames Water, and considers key topics including:

  • What is the most effective way for utilities to monitor their sewerage networks?
  • What action can utilities take if there is a warning of an imminent spillage?
  • What financial benefits can utilities gain from investing in sewer modelling?
  • Are the predictions from hydraulic models reliable?
