OHM Advisors

OHM

As our first customer, OHM Advisors has used H2Ometrics for a variety of projects and client engagements over the years.  Applications have included over forty (40) sanitary sewer models using the H2Ometrics Antecedent Moisture Model, and numerous smart water and sewer monitoring applications.

Franklin County, Ohio / Brown and Caldwell

Franklin CountyBrown & CaldwellFranklin County used H2Ometrics to perform a sanitary sewer inflow and infiltration analysis using data from 50 flow meters and rain gauges.  The analysis was performed by Brown and Caldwell’s Columbus office and they credited H2Ometrics with being very efficient, easy to use and saving a lot of time on the analysis.

Ann Arbor, MI

City of Ann Arbor MichiganAnn Arbor has used the H2Ometrics Antecedent Moisture Model to perform a wet weather flow analysis and model of their system to understand system capacity and to evaluate the effectiveness of their Footing Drain Disconnection Program.  The also used H2Ometrics to manage the data from the flow metering and perform the wet weather flow analysis.

Ypsilanti Community Utilities Authority (YCUA), MI

Ypsilanti Community Utilities AuthorityYCUA is a regional water and sewer authority that serves the City of Ypsilanti and the Townships of Ypsilanti, Pittsfield, Augusta, Superior, York and Sumpter. YCUA uses H2Ometrics for both their water and sewer systems.

On the sewer side, YCUA used H2Ometrics to manage data collected from 20 flow meters for their sewer meter based billing system.  H2Ometrics is used to aggregate the data, review the flow meter performance, edit the data and process the sewer volumes for billing.

On the water side, YCUA uses H2Ometrics to monitor system performance and peak water usage. With a water supply contract from the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) that stipulates steep penalties for exceeding contractual flow limits, YCUA closely monitors summer time water usage using H2Ometrics alerts and reports.

Livonia, MI

LivoniaLivonia uses H2Ometrics to perform smart sewer system monitoring using real time flow and depth data collected from a series of permanent flow meters in the City.  They use the alerts and reports tools to receive updates on system performance and alerts to any unusual conditions during dry weather flow.  During wet weather events, they use H2Ometrics to monitor any surcharging in the system to perform advanced notice of the risk of basement backups.

Fishers, IN

Fishers

Fishers used the H2Ometrics Antecedent Moisture Model to determine the sizing for a sanitary retention facility to mitigate the risk of sewer overflows from their system.

Bloomington, IL

BloomingtonBloomington used the H2Ometrics Antecedent Moisture Model to perform a comprehensive assessment of their sanitary collection system.  The model was used to evaluate the risks of sewer overflows and to size improvements to perform sufficient wet weather sewer capacity.

Columbus, OH

Columbus Ohio

Columbus used the H2Ometrics Antecedent Moisture Model to perform a pilot evaluation of the reduction of system inflow and infiltration from the sewer rehabilitation program.

Heart of the Valley (HOV), Wisconsin

Heart of the ValleyHOV is a regional sanitary collection system that serves the communities of Combined Locks, Darboy, Kaukauna, Kimberly, and Little Chute. HOV used the H2Ometrics Antecedent Moisture Model to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the reduction of system inflow and infiltration from the sewer rehabilitation program.

Wayne County, Michigan

Wayne CountyWayne County was the first large-scale, commercial application of the H2Ometrics antecedent moisture model for sanitary sewer modeling.  The Wayne County Director of the Environment, Kurt Heise, credited H2Ometrics with reducing the size of the Rouge Valley tunnel from a $265 Million dollar project to a $90 Million dollar project, a savings of $175 Million dollars.
