Actionable Data Outcomes from a Rising Main Monitoring Programme - Case Study

Following successful learnings from monitoring transients on water distribution networks, Anglian Water and Syrinix looked to see if there was an opportunity to transfer this knowledge across to wastewater ‘rising mains.’
Across the UK water industry monitoring of rising mains is limited and even less common is a partnership approach to analysing and developing the data. Pressure monitoring offered a whole new angle on providing data which could inform and influence working practice and ultimately be beneficial from both an environmental and cost saving perspective. The key driver from Anglian Water was to first off explore the capability of pressure monitoring to identify bursts on rising mains.
A burst on a wastewater network and the impact of its pollution is a problem with significant consequence for both customers and the environment and therefore increasing resilience by improving visibility and the time to respond is imperative, with obvious all-round benefits.
