New App Assists Preventing Sanitary Sewer Overflows

Vancouver, Canada —  Carl Data Solutions Inc. announced that its wholly-owed subsidiary FlowWorks Inc. is moving on to the piloting phase with their new application for helping prevent sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs).

Infinitii SSO Forecaster, a machine-learning enabled tool that helps predict where and when an overflow might take place seven days in advance, is the latest edition to Carl Data’s suite of applications that support healthy, sustainable smart city development.

Kevin Marsh, VP of Sales for FlowWorks, says, “As many of our clients are experiencing more extreme storm and rainfall events, they are seeing SSOs occur where they haven’t been in the past. Last week, Raleigh, North Carolina had seven million gallons of sewage overflow into waterways and even onto private property. Our Infinitii SSO Forecaster can help prevent this from happening.”

SSOs occur when untreated sewage is discharged from a sanitary sewer into the environment prior to reaching a sewage treatment facility.

This is often caused by excessive stormwater entering sewer lines during a heavy rainfall, and may occur even in well managed sewer systems.

Sanitary sewer overflows can cause gastrointestinal illnesses, beach closures and restrictions on fish and shellfish consumption.

“SSOs aren’t only a direct problem for the health and infrastructure of cities and municipalities, but are also a liability,” said Greg Johnston, CEO and President of Carl Data Solutions. “The destruction of private property by sewage is messy in more ways than one, and we could help cities mitigate their financial damages with our Infinitii I&I and Infinitii SSO Forecaster.”

FlowWorks is a powerful Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) based application for collecting, monitoring and analyzing all types of environmental data. The application has the unique ability to collect data from all types of monitoring equipment, gauges and sensor hardware, SCADA systems and other sources of public and private data to merge the information into a single platform to perform comprehensive analytics and reporting, saving time and money for the end user.

Carl Data Solutions Inc. is an Industrial IoT (IIoT) company focused on providing next generation information collection, storage and analytics solutions for data-centric companies.

Building on its recent acquisitions, Carl helps its clients analyze and understand all forms of environmental data through a powerful platform of data collection, monitoring, reporting, and predictive analysis tools.

Carl Data continues to develop applications to work with new cloud-based mass storage services and analytics tools (Big-Data-as-a-Service (BDaaS) to provide scalability for municipalities, utilities and other industrial verticals.

These data collection and storage methods allow the company to build smart Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based applications that can collect data from many diverse sources and provide deep insight for decision-making purposes.
