Myth Busting – Distributed versus Spot
Increasing the frequency of discrete monitors in a sewer network to one over every 10km will adequately reduce pollution events.
This would result in:
- 140 chambers between each monitored location
- Networks invisible in these sections
- Inability to accurately identify and efficiently address the root cause of the issue
If a blockage occurs in these invisible sections, that means up to 400,000 litres of sewage is between each monitor point and can easily overflow.
Check out the latest instalment here of our myth-busting series where our Technical Director Dr Paul Dickenson discuses this myth in more detail.
