Wastewater Level Monitoring- The Revolutionised Way Forward With IoT & Smart Machine-Learning Data Analytics

Register Now

Phillip Tomlinson, Commercial Director (EMEA), Metasphere

Speaker Bio | Company Profile


  • Monitoring the wastewater levels in a wastewater network is imperative as it enables utilities to effectively manage their network to prevent wastewater spills, reduce pollution and improve visibility, performance, and forecasting.
  • Wastewater spills are a major contributor to rivers and inland waterways often being below the expected water quality standards, as well as being a leading cause in the contamination of freshwater and marine ecosystems. Further spills into the sea impacts bathing water quality and poses serious health risks and damage to marine ecosystems
  • Blockages and collapsed sewers often go undetected, whilst control rooms are inundated with high level alarms that are subsequently often turned off during wet weather events due to the impact of rainfall on wastewater network levels.
  • These instances result in environmental and reputational damage for utilities, increased expenditure to clean up the damage caused by spills events, as well as being faced with fines issued by regulatory bodies.
  • The webinar will explore how Wastewater Level Monitoring is being revolutionised with IoT and Smart Machine-Learning Data Analytics
  • The audience will learn how a new innovative approach to managing wastewater levels can significantly improve wastewater network visibility.
  • The audience will also gain insight about an alternative ground-breaking approach that not only addresses the many problems utilities face, but a new way of working that ultimately delivers a cleaner, greener world for everyone.

What Is The Role Of Real-Time Nitrate And Nitrite Monitoring In Achieving Net Zero Wastewater Treatment?

Register Now

  • How to practically harness the energy locked up in wastewater in the WWTPs of the future
  • Given that nitrate and nitrite are intermediates in the single most energy-intensive conversion in conventional wastewater treatment, a robust method to monitor them in real-time is likely to be a key enabler in process optimisation – even without SBNR
  • Energy-efficient wastewater treatment is on the agenda for utilities everywhere. As part of the drive to net zero
  • Improved process control and shortcut biological nitrogen removal, enabled through real-time nitrate and nitrate monitoring, can significantly reduce electricity demand for aeration
  • Short Biological Nitrogen Removal (SBNR) offers the potential to dramatically reduce aeration requirements – however, process control is a key challenge.
