Pollution Mitigation ART Sewer
Metasphere’s ART Sewer Wastewater Level Monitoring solution was announced as the winner of the Pollution Mitigation Initiative of the Year at the 2022 Water Industry Awards ceremony on the 29th June 2022.
The Water Industry Awards recognised the very best practice from the frontline of the water sector and entries were open to all companies, including water utilities. The award categories placed a special focus on those companies driving innovative products and solutions and its applicability to the wider industry as well as those products and solutions that showed creativity, efficiency, and outstanding customer service.
Metasphere is justifiably proud to have won this prestigious award that celebrates the incredible work and achievements by those in the water industry.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we face today and we all have a responsibility to help protect our world and our water supply for the future. For utilities this environmental driver has seen a goal to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.
Metasphere developed ART Sewer to help utilities achieve their net zero ambitions. ART Sewer’s objective is to help wastewater utilities prevent wastewater spills, thereby reducing pollution to keep the natural environment clean and protected.
The ART Sewer Wastewater Level Monitoring solution achieves this objective by enabling wastewater utilities to proactively manage flow in sewers, pumping stations, manholes and Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs), detect dry weather and partial sewer blockages, as well as monitor and prevent flooding events.
Since ART Sewer‘s launch in January 2021, this revolutionary Wastewater Level Monitoring solution has already been selected by a number of utilities as part of their strategic Wastewater network management initiatives to help deliver an all-in-one, cost-effective approach for improved network visibility, performance and forecasting; with the aim to deliver zero wastewater spills/ escapes across a network.
Tim O’Brien, CEO of Metasphere commented: ”ART Sewer is already having a positive impact on the industry as it is realising a new proactive approach to monitoring wastewater levels in a network. The ability to predict and detect blockages means that spills are prevented altogether. This will ultimately have a hugely positive impact on reducing wastewater pollution from spills that find their way into freshwater and sea water and thus contaminate the natural environment. And by reducing pollution from wastewater spills, ART Sewer will help wastewater utilities meet their net zero targets; hopefully well in advance of 2030. We are incredibly proud to be part of the solution to reduce pollution caused by wastewater spills and to help create a cleaner, greener world for everyone”.
