How to manage the most important part of a city's internal infrastructure--its sewer systems

The operation and maintenance of modern sewer systems have not kept pace with technological revolutions everywhere--until now. Utilizing a combination of computerized management tools, monitoring systems, and other intelligent equipment, today's automated sewer management systems allow designers, managers, operators, and investors to get continuous data feeds on sewer flows, interjurisdictional billing information, and emergency situations: information essential to upgrading overall system quality and efficiency.

Sewer Management Systems offers a practical, comprehensive look at procuring and implementing state-of-the-art sewer management systems and monitoring equipment. It opens with an overview of sewer maintenance and management and then discusses such introductory concepts as understanding flow and how to measure it. It then introduces structures and features of the sewer infrastructure that are useful in general ways, providing definitions applicable in any context. Further chapters cover:
* Step-by-step guidance on making system purchase decisions
* Data communications, utility services, and sequencing
* How to clearly apply data generated to tangible, real-world tasks
* Additional functions that may be designed after the system is up and running
* Algorithm development for warnings and features for automatic sewer control
* How to get a return on investment for an upgraded system--showing how to use it as a funding source, not just a funding pit
* How to upgrade the installed monitoring system

The book's appendices provide equipment specifications, recommended calibration standards, and sample specifications. Offering methodical and detailed guidance to the state of the art of this important engineering specialty, Sewer Management Systems is the complete reference to designing systems that effectively monitor that most basic part of a city's infrastructure--the key to maintai

From Our Editors

The use of monitoring systems, computerized modelling tools and other types of automation have revolutionized sanitary and combined sewer system design. Author Thomas J. Day has written an important text on this issue - the first to document and detail the use of automated systems in sewer design and management. Readers of Sewer Management Systems will learn practical information on leveraging investments in an automated system by archiving system data for use in budgetary decisions. This text also provides cutting-edge procedures for procuring and implementing completely modern sewer systems.
