Such hydraulic modelling is used for strategic planning through Drainage & Wastewater Management Plans (DWMPs) and the Water Industry Natural Environment Programme (WINEP), and initial data analysis has found significant differences between modelled and measured spill counts.
The primary focus of the report is quantifying, managing, and effectively communicating these differences for better understanding and decision-making.
Assessment Framework (SOAF) investigations – or other overflow investigations – must be granted to gather and analyse data effectively.
The report concludes that if these recommendations are implemented it will lead to greater alignment between measured and modelled spill data.
This project is part of Big Question 6: How do we achieve zero uncontrolled discharges from sewers by 2050?. Atkins was the main contractor and the Project Steering Group was formed of representatives from across the water industry. Project Lead was Paul Tipper, and UKWIR’s project manager was Linda Hustler.
