Myth busting more sensors means more reactive maintenance
Increasing the volume of discrete monitors in a sewer network will lead to proactive maintenance.
A scale deployment with a monitor every 10km, on average would require 11 additional dedicated crews in constant operation for regular sensor maintenance, cleaning and changing batteries.
Over a 20-year period:
- 40,000 batteries will need to be replaced.
- 60 tonnes of lithium batteries will be disposed of.
