Addressing Stormwater Goals with Continuous Monitoring and Adaptive Control

07/27/2017

The use of dynamic control systems for stormwater management has historically been quite limited. Most current efforts in the field of stormwater engineering focus on analyzing and developing designs that passively achieve target stormwater management objectives; however, passive systems rarely represent optimal solutions. When stormwater facilities function ineffectively and are not managed as assets, communities are negatively affected by a range of financial and environmental impacts including costly fines, poor water quality, localized flooding, and combined sewer overflows (CSOs). 


This presentation will focus on the continuous monitoring and adaptive control (CMAC) of distributed stormwater infrastructure, an innovative alternative to passive stormwater management facilities. In particular, this presentation will demonstrate the potential of CMAC technology by 1) detailing how it lowers the cost and risk of managing stormwater and infrastructure, and enables communities to dependably keep their watersheds safe and in compliance and 2) highlighting case studies of communities that have achieved objectives such as improved water quality, reduced flooding, and CSO mitigation.
