Buffalo, NY prevents sewer overflows during storms with the Wastewater Network Optimization System
Buffalo, NY Wastewater Network Optimization System
Xylem's platform collects data from sensors throughout the city's sewer system. Machine learning processes result in predictions about potential overflows during heavy rains. This system automatically channels water into sewer pipes with available capacity, thus preventing wastewater from entering local waterways. The Buffalo Sewer Authority did not need to add new infrastructure for the project and can scale up the platform's use for future system extensions.
