New machine learning technology from ADS Environmental Services (ADS) is making it easier to anticipate sewer overflows and blockages before they happen, protecting property and the environment.

ADS, which provides integrated hardware, software, and Data as a Service (DaaS) solutions, unveiled its newest installment of the PRISM software platform at the WEFTEC (Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference) tradeshow in Chicago, Illinois last week.

PRISM (PRoactive Insight for System Management) is a cloud-based web application that allows end users to view a map of flow rates, water levels, and rainfall monitors throughout a wastewater collection system. The software enables municipal engineers, managers, and operations users to transform data into actionable insights through an easy and transformative user interface.

Unlike competitor products, the PRISM platform empowers customers to “See what you normally cannot see, to prevent what you normally cannot anticipate.”

Unique to ADS Environmental Services, PRISM includes the addition of the blockage PREDICT™ machine learning application.

Blockage PREDICT™ provides a new early warning system for potential overflow-causing blockages in the collection system, with up to a 2-week advance warning before serious problems arise! With additional “learning” and enhancements, these algorithms soon will have the potential to identify the actual causes of the potential problems and allow our customers to respond quickly and correctly without having to guess what the problem may be.

PRISM also includes the SLiiCER™ application, giving users the ability to quickly evaluate their full collection system response to storm events. Users can quickly evaluate their entire network for the negative impacts of rainwater infiltration and inflow into their systems due to any type of rain event, and then plan their reactive response to these events to better focus their operational and capital spending.

Expanding upon the first software installment, which was launched in late 2018, this latest installment of PRISM features significant improvements to support management, engineering, and operational decisions in their wastewater collection systems.
