Optimising sewer cleaning
The influence of gradient, fluctuation in run-off, time of year, time of day and ingress of mineral burdens, are now to be studied in a second phase, to determine further potential savings.
Selected sewer network operators are to be provided with support to implement the findings in order to optimise the benefits of this research.
The key output from the project will be a recommendation for action which will assist and support sewer network operators in the implementation of optimising sewer cleaning strategies, exploiting synergies and realising potential savings.
