USING DATA TO REDUCE POLLUTIONS

We’re using the data we have at our fingertips to predict and respond to incidents of pollution before an issue has even occurred. This highly innovative approach helps ensure we meet the needs of current and future generations in a changing world.

By making better use of data and analytics we are now able to pre-empt incidents of pollution and intervene before incidents occur that could be damaging to our customers and the environment.

Greater use of monitoring at pumping stations and at our Combined Sewer Overflows – the systems that operate during heavy rainfall to protect homes and streets from flooding – means we can respond to changing water levels.

Moreover, we are using the data from our monitors to create trend information, predicting how our systems will perform and triggering a response before an incident of pollution takes place.

An early warning system has also been developed using the innovative processes of sectors outside of the water industry.
