The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSDGC), a wastewater operator providing collection and treatment services to more than 800,0000 residents in Cincinnati, Ohio, operates a combined sewer system. Every year, MSDGC discharged about 11B gallons of combined sewage into the Ohio River.
Before implementing Ayyeka’s technology, MSDGC utilized several hundred CSO dataloggers. Data that was collected and stored in these devices was downloaded intermittently by crews that were deployed to change batteries and check operational parameters. MSDGC was discharging 11BG of combined sewage into the Ohio River.
Connecting the entire collection system to the MSDGC’s SCADA system enabled the teams to develop predictive models to assess the impact of precipitation events in the various catchment areas throughout its collection system. As a result, MSDGC substantially reduced the number and severity of overflow events and move toward regulatory compliance.
