Wastewater modelling supports the analysis of our wastewater networks, critical to the health and wellbeing of communities and to the effective operation of all statutory sewerage undertaker’s assets. As well as planning, modelling and designing wastewater networks for new developments, Waterco works with partners to model the impact of potential foul water flooding and design methods for preventing this.
Wastewater modelling helps address both existing and future needs: providing the information needed to help understand the network capacity, its ability to support future developments and provide intelligence that can suggest operational improvements (pumping regime, pipe upgrades etc). Where there are problems in the network (blockages, pipe condition, surcharging) modelling can help identify the root cause.
There are many complex processes and variables that impact a system’s performance. Waterco can help develop cost-effective solutions by undertaking wastewater network modelling at each stage of the design process: optioneering, feasibility, detailed design and commissioning. These services can help save time, money and improve asset operation.
