Sanitary Sewer Overflow
Aclara’s sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) solution alerts utilities to any potential or actual sanitary sewer overflow, which can send contaminated water onto streets or into lakes, rivers or streams.
Aclara’s easy-to-deploy SSO solution places a water height sensor in the sanitary sewer, which then sends a signal to the utility, over an AMI network, when sewers rise to potential overflow levels. The SSO can detect clogged sewers in time to dispatch a service crew. During storms it triggers an alarm when sewers fill to unacceptable “surcharge” levels, signaling imminent overflow conditions.

- Avoid fines and costs related to consent decrees and government regulations.
- Reduce costly clean-ups.
- Collect information to schedule preventive service calls.
- Protect the image and reputation of the utility from unwarranted consumer or regulatory complaints.
