January 26, 2021, 12:00 PM–01:00 PM, EST
Join Kieran Fahey, Director of Long-Term Control Planning for the City of South Bend, Indiana and Xylem's Tim Ruggaber to discuss how intelligent watershed technology empowered the City of South Bend to optimize its existing sewer system, protect community health, and solve overflows without the need to build costly new gray infrastructure. Learn how Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization is being utilized by the City to eliminate dry weather overflows by roughly 1 billion gallons per year, reduce E. coli concentration (from the sewer system) by 50% in the Saint Joseph River, and save an estimated $400 million in capital work as well as $1.5 million per year in operations and maintenance costs.
