Creation of Sewer Metering Areas (SMA’s) for Better Asset Management: A Western Virginia Water Authority Study
This Webinar concentrates on how Western Virginia Water Authority implemented Sewer Metered Areas (SMA’s) mini zones to assist in hydraulic model calibration and sewer asset prioritization for rehabilitation and replacement. SMA’s will be defined in detail, methodology will be explained, and benefits will be demonstrated using real-world examples. WVWA will also showcase their innovative use of Innovyze hydraulic modeling and asset management tools to aid in their straightforward, defensible approach of implementing SMA’s.
