OWWA 2019, Ottawa: C3 Water Presentation Schedule

MAY 7, 2019

TIME: 10:30 – 11:00am Multiple Sources and One Pipe: Using Hydraulic Analysis to Model Source Water Composition Changes in the Arkell Aqueduct

C3 Water Inc. has developed hydraulic models of the Arkell Aqueduct to estimate transit-times of GW and GUDI-WEF source water from Arkell wellfield to Woods Water Treatment Plant. The model was used to program a real-time SCADA application that is used by Operations to determine when UV treatment is required.

TIME: 9:00– 9:30am Planning & Problem Solving with a Smart Water System: City of Guelph Case Study 

As technologies in the water industry continue to progress, municipalities now have a large amount of data about their distribution system at their disposal. In the City of Guelph (City), some of the available tools include district metering areas (DMA), smart hydrants, a hydraulic model, a transient model, to name few. These tools are very valuable as stand-alone sources of information, but are even more powerful when combined to plan and problem solve in a distribution system.

TIME: 9:30– 10:00am Showcasing Water Conservation & Leak Detection: Smart Water Initiative and Water Efficiency Improvement in the City of Cambridge

The City of Cambridge has embarked on a unique approach to conserve water which includes a phased DMA installation. The goal is employ a water balance perspective by installing Automated Metered Infrastructure on customer’s services within the DMAs and include infiltration and inflow monitoring by incorporating the sewer infrastructure.

TIME: 3:15– 3:45pm Case Study:  Robust Consultative Process to Update the Region of Waterloo’s Raw Water Intake Protocol during Grand River Watershed Upsets

The Region of Waterloo has undertaken a robust consultative process to update its current raw water intake protocol during Grand River upsets. The central purpose of this protocol review and updating exercise is to determine if more operational flexibility can be supported by the current understanding of technology and science.
