Proactive Condition Assessment

Providing cost-saving solutions through
predictive maintenance

Regulatory compliance

The U.S. EPA is in the process of developing regulations (CMOM Program) that in the very near future will become minimum permit requirements for the capital agenda, operation and maintenance of all wastewater conveyance systems.

The EPA benchmarks the efficiency of wastewater operations by the ratio of preventive to corrective maintenance making dynamic condition assessment a key component for managing today’s aging wastewater networks; especially when it comes to the detection and remediation of I&I and the prevention of sewer overflows.

By including iTracking® condition assessment technology within the CMOM framework, cities and utilities will acquire huge benefits when migrating from a “reactive” to a “proactive” platform. iTracking’s advanced technology has the capability to detect, measure and locate finite areas of I&I and embed this knowledge base throughout the entire CMOM regulatory compliance platform.

iTracker® Wi-Fi Enabled Sensors

iTracking® is the patented integration of low cost sensors, wireless connectivity and high speed analytics.

iTracker® sensors, weighing just 1.9 pounds, monitor wastewater collection system performance on a continual basis without the requirement for confined-space entry, repetitive maintenance and “in the road” data collection. Operating data is safely and effortlessly retrieved through either Wi-Fi or Cellular enabled technology.

Hang a Wi-Fi enabled iTracker® sensor over the center of the trough at the bottom of your manhole.


Grab the data with your Wi-Fi enabled smart device by auto-connecting to the iTracker’s® onboard server.


View your daily, weekly and monthly operating performance in real-time or in “at-a-glance” graphical formats.

Strategic Condition Assessment

Condition assessment runs the gamut from collection system maintenance to regulatory compliance to risk management. In order to accomplish these operations successfully, the necessity for reliable and timely field data coupled with cleverly developed analytics becomes a key ingredient.

The other key ingredient is the ability to gather enough data so that every potentially problematic situation becomes immediately recognizable and flagged for attention. iTracking® analytical software programs, in tandem with “trend” analysis data from the Sewerwatch™ Mobile App, provide just this type of ability.

Risk Management

Overflow/Backup Prevention

Cellular enabled iTracker® sensors will immediately alert operations and maintenance personnel to the probability of an impending toxic spill or residential basement backup weeks before the event may actually occur.

Cellular enabled iTracker® sensors, through their ability to continuously monitor problematic manholes and detect deviations in historically captured performance indicators, will immediately alert operations and maintenance personnel to the probability of an impending toxic spill or residential basement backup weeks before the event may actually occur. This capability for “immediacy in response” can be critically important when faced with the possibility of large regulatory agency fines, multiple insurance claims and unfavorable public reaction.

Predictive Maintenance

The employment of predictive analytical technologies such as iTracking® not only increases levels of operating efficiencies but also provides valuable cost savings by eliminating unneeded and low-value maintenance tasks. A good example of this is “predictive” versus “scheduled” cleaning of sewer pipes. Sewer cleaning is a municipal activity that consumes tremendous quantities of fresh water, and yet most cleaning crews have no way of determining in advance whether a pipe actually needs cleaning.

According to recent studies, up to 35% of sewer lines are jetted unnecessarily. But now, scarce water supplies in many cities are changing the equation. Municipal supervisors are looking for ways to pre-screen these pipes in order to identify those that actually require cleaning.

The cost of jetting a sewer can be measured in dollars, hours and gallons. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department in a technical memorandum (DWSD Project No. CS-1314) concluded that the average historical cost for heavy jet cleaning a sewer came to $16.41/LF or $86,645 per mile.

Utilizing iTracking® technology to immediately verify whether the cleaning of a section of the collection network is necessary can dramatically reduce these costs.
