About the event

“Monitoring CSOs Part 2” aims to showcase success stories of sensor implementation in Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) to meet the requirements outlined in the Environment Act 2021. The workshop will feature presentations and panel discussions from relevant professionals, providing valuable insights into key issues related to successful implementation of sensing technologies.

The Environment Act 2021 empowers the government to establish long-term and legally binding environmental targets, including those for water quality and biodiversity in rivers and watercourses. Climate change is causing increased peak flows in sewer networks, leading to more frequent and voluminous CSO spills, highlighting the need for advanced sensing technologies and data analytics.

This workshop will showcase successful implementations of sensing technologies and data analytics in CSOs, including case studies of end-user adoption. It will explore the latest advancements in sensing technologies and data analytics, highlighting solutions that meet the requirements outlined in the Environment Act 2021.

In summary, the Monitoring CSOs Part 2 workshop provides academics and industry professionals with valuable insights into successful sensor implementation in CSOs. The presentations and panel discussions cover sensor deployment in rivers and on wastewater assets, installation and maintenance of sensors, latest advancements in the field, and solutions that enable compliance with the Environment Act 2021. 

SWIG will be holding a raffle for a bottle of whisky, with the winner to be announced at the event. Click here for more details.
