Specification Section: Water/Wastewater Guide 2020
The water sector (water and wastewater) is an important part of modern infrastructure worldwide. This brief listing is meant to showcase products and technology used and specified by civil and structural engineers.
OpenFlows SewerOPS is a complete predictive-modeling solution for real-time stormwater network operations, maintenance and forecasting. Extending the capabilities of SCADA with a calibrated hydraulic model, the application computes live network conditions, helping users achieve target optimization for events associated with a range of conditions from normal operation to sewer overflows, blockages and network power outages. Access to a versatile, easy-to-use interface brings the live simulations out of the engineering group and into the hands of the operations department. Operators and operations engineers can instantaneously run multiple hydraulic scenarios that factor collection system capacity, SCADA telemetry and demand history—all without the need for modeling expertise.

Environment One Corporation
Pressure Sewer Systems
Pressure sewage collection systems were pioneered by Environment One. E/One Sewer systems have proven to be an effective method of sewering otherwise difficult land areas, such as flat, wet, rocky and hilly terrain, at a fraction of the cost of gravity sewers. Pressure sewer mains need only to be buried just below the frost line, eliminating the need for the deep trenches often associated with gravity sewers. The small, flexible pipes are also resistant to I&I.
At the heart of an E/One Sewer is the grinder pump, developed by Environment One. These units accept household sanitary waste, grind it into a fine slurry, and pressurize it to permit transport through small-diameter pipes. E/One Sewer Systems serve nearly 2 million end users daily.

American Concrete Pipe Association
The American Concrete Pipe Association is the spokesperson for the concrete pipe industry in all matters affecting the industry’s welfare.
Throughout the 20th century, the concrete pipe industry has experienced tremendous growth. As more and more people moved from farms to cities, it created increased demand for concrete sewer and drainage products. The introduction of the automobile and subsequent highway development extended the uses of concrete pipe storm drains and culverts. There are currently more than 400 plants operated by ACPA members in the United States and Canada. More than 40 countries are represented in the membership of the American Concrete Pipe Association.
ACPA members contribute to the improvement of our environment by producing quality concrete pipe, engineered to provide a lasting and economical solution to drainage and pollution problems.

Stormsurge Access Assembly
During a major rain or tidal event, the water pressure can be powerful enough to force up and dislodge a manhole cover. This creates a hazard for both motorists and pedestrians. The STORMSURGE Access Assembly solves this problem by allowing water to flow. During a storm surge or backflow event, the cover can lift up to 16 degrees, enabling water to flow out and relieve the pressure. The locking arm and hinge restrain the cover and allow it to properly seat itself after the event. Made in the USA, it is traffic rated and exceeds the 40,000-lb proof loading requirements of AASHTO-M-306.
Endustra Filter Manufacturers, a family owned company in Schererville, Ind., designs and manufactures the Tri-Vent Series: intake filters and filter-silencers that not only protect equipment but reduce power consumption enough for a first-year return on investment.

Vaughan Co., Inc.
The Vaughan Chopper Pump is a centrifugal pump with the unique ability of chopping all incoming solids prior to pumping. This not only protects the pump from clogging, but also provides added benefit to downstream components, processes and the environment.
All wear components are cast steel and heat treated for maximum impact and wear resistance. Combined, these heavy-duty patented components create the ultimate pump for handling severe solids.
Chopping is accomplished by the scissor action of the leading edges of the impeller vanes cutting against the opposing edges of the cutter bar.
All solids are chopped as they enter between the cutter bar and the impeller vanes. The smaller solids are easily pumped by the centrifugal action of the impeller.

With a domed cylinder and integrally manufactured ribs, the tanks are designed to withstand the stresses of underground installation, including H-25/HS-25 axle loads.
We provide an engineered solution for each project based on system requirements, site footprint and total volume. The large-diameter watertight tanks can be configured to accommodate any volume of stormwater. Whether as collection, infiltration or treatment tanks, they are ideal for any stormwater or water-quality project at even the most-challenging site. The tanks are manufactured to ANSI/AWWA D120 and are IAPMO/ANSI Z1002 listed.
