Consent levels refer to the amount of time that a volume of waste water is allowed to spill, typically under an agreement with environment authorities. The spills are classed as water flowing into the CSO during a non-rainfall related event; there can be fines attached to sites that spill above and beyond their allowed threshold. Over a large network of CSOs these fines can become quite substantial if left unchecked, thus creating a need for water companies to monitor the most frequent offenders.
Monitoring CSO spill points and consent levels:
- Provides users with a better understanding of the network
- Allows problems to be identified before an event leads to an illegal spill
- Prevents fines
- Supports environmental submissions with comprehensive data
Technolog products can be used to monitor CSO spill points, providing vital data and an early warning system.
