Make wastewater
make sense

Evidence shows increasing rainfall, population and urbanisation is causing flooding and discharge from ageing and overloaded sewers. nuron helps wastewater operators address challenges and improve performance.

Rule and Regulations

As population intensifies in towns and cities and climate change adds higher peak volumes to the drainage infrastructure, a better way to manage the operational, financial and environmental challenges of pipeline assets has never been more urgent.

In its 2014 price review, UK regulator Ofwat prioritised climate change mitigation, climate change adaption, rising environmental standards and rising consumer expectations for UK wastewater industries. There are similar and other regulatory challenges across Europe and globally.

Challenges

Reactive to Predictive Management

Our continuous in-pipe fibre sensing technology replaces reactive solutions of the past with real-time detection and precise localisation capabilities, enabling proactive sewer maintenance and predictive sewer management.

Water and utility operators can now look forward to:

  • operational efficiencies and improved business case planning
  • cost savings including lower compensation costs due to reduced flooding,
  • capital expenditure deferral with a long term ‘totex’ approach to infrastructure investment
  • a reputation for sustainability and environmental protection.

Reactive, Proactive, Predictive

Urban flooding due to drainage systems being overwhelmed by rainfall is estimated to cost £270 million a year in England and Wales; 80,000 homes are at risk (view source document here).
