The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has established a real-time monitoring project to effectively manage the sewer networks across the country.
The innovative project, which began in March 2016, will set up monitoring systems in both the foul and surface ground water networks.
The project, due to be completed by the first quarter of 2019, will enable the personnel of Ashghal’s Drainage Networks Operations & Maintenance (DNO & M) Department to observe the performance of the networks throughout Qatar, besides providing accurate real time information.
Subsequently, this is expected to help proactively act to sustain the services being provided in a way that would reduce flooding incidents and customer complaints, protect pipeline assets from the build-up of hydrogen sulfide and contribute to improvements in the quality of sewage pumped to the treatment plant to further protect these assets and the quality of recycled water.
The project consists of the installation and maintenance of 290 flow meters, 400 depth monitors, 90 hydrogen sulfide monitors, 90 saline monitors, four rain gauges and 100 cameras; all being placed at critical parts of the network.
These “eyes” on the network will, in combination with the existing supervisory control and data acquisition system, provide real-time monitoring and early warning alarms, to assist in the building of greatly enhanced network performance intelligence to engineers, prevent defects and service interruptions.
Reporting and viewing of data will be accessible to multiple users through desktop and mobile devices such as iPads.
Ashghal and DNO & M have deployed the Innovyze ICM Live software to utilise this real time input data to establish, for the first time in Qatar, operational planning and support hydraulic models of its networks to provide enhanced support to engineers to manage and resolve incidents.
