Wastewater- Flow Monitoring and Modeling Study

View all


FY23 Funding: $600,000

Install field sensors inside the wastewater pipes to measure flows. Information will be utilized to update the wastewater model and detect excess rainwater that has infiltrated into the sewer pipes. Information will be utilized to identify improvements to mitigate existing issues and plan for future wastewater flows in the collection system.

As part of the city’s 2021 Wastewater Master Plan Update, the city constructed a planning-level wastewater collection system hydraulic model. The wastewater model was constructed from the city’s latest GIS files and includes wastewater flows based on the city’s equivalent single family connections (ESFC) database. In order to utilize the model for operational and capacity analysis, it needs to be calibrated to flow monitoring data.
