This paper presents the results from a proof on concept pilot for continuous monitoring of pump performance, water network balance and water infrastructure leakage index using SCADA data readings in Info360 software by Innovyze.
This paper will explain how Fire and Emergency NZ (FENZ) manage risk when fighting fires, how this relates to the current CoP, and how modelling and GIS tools have been developed to better inform FENZ when fighting fires.
This paper describes how the challenges of providing for long term growth in a catchment can be achieved whilst also contributing towards a demonstrable improvement in achieving the vision for a receiving environment. This has been developed in close collaboration with iwi and stakeholders.
Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) Shotover Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) receives municipal sewage from Queenstown in addition to the Arrowtown, Lake Hayes, and Arthur’s Point communities and in the past consisted of a facultative treatment pond system located on the Shotover River Delta
This paper presents findings from Deep South Science Challenge research project into the economic, environmental, cultural and social impacts and implications of climate change on New Zealand’s stormwater and wastewater systems. In addition to identifying impacts and implications, the study identifies regional priority areas, and develops a series of guiding principles for managers.
This paper describes the approaches that RDC and Veolia have used in upgrading the Raetihi WTP to ensure water safety, achieve DWSNZ compliance, and overcome the financial and time challenges. It also provides an overview of the upgraded WTP including its performance, and lessons learnt along the journey.
For the past 20 years, Christchurch City Council (CCC) has used the internationally recognised software program known as SAP. (SAP is a product from a German software company whose products allow businesses to track customer and business interactions.) CCC primarily uses SAP as a financial transaction tracking tool.
Christchurch has a large and complex wastewater network serving 384,000 people. Past efforts to reduce wet weather overflows were based on traditional trial-and-error modelling, and the system upgrades stemming from those modelling efforts have not been as effective as hoped, despite costing more than $150 million.
This paper outlines; the traditional approach to WWTP design and its associated efficiency problems, system solutions and an alternate design approach with key efficiency gains, guidance on how to calculate specific power for an individual unit and an entire system.
This paper will outline case studies to demonstrate the technologies and systems available which can be used to achieve a Zero Environmental Footprint Plant. A current and future scenario is presented demonstrating the changes in processing required to achieve this paradigm shift.
This paper discusses how an energy and carbon study can assist wastewater asset owners and their engineering advisors in identifying the impacts of upgrade and expansion actions on the energy consumption and carbon footprint of wastewater assets.
