Flow Monitoring

Flow Monitoring Processes


Since 1998, V&A has supported municipalities and agencies in managing their water and wastewater collection systems and mitigating sanitary system overflows.

V&A’s primary responsibility to our flow monitoring clients is to provide quality data so they can execute smart decisions for their investments. We understand that decisions are crucial for future multimillion-dollar CIP construction efforts and flow monitoring data plays an important role during this process. There are distinct features that separate our data collection processes from other firms.

  • Committed Personnel
    Our dedicated engineers are “hands-on” and spend much of their time in the field. Better continuity from the field to data analysis makes for better final reports. 

  • Comprehensive Data Collection
    Our team stands out in the marketplace because the engineers direct the work from the beginning to the end and, therefore, we guarantee data integrity. Through good accurate data, we are capable of pinpointing predictions of peak flows for a given segment of the system and establish valuable hydraulic models.

  • Project-Specific Technology
    Since V&A is not affiliated with any particular manufacturer, equipment diversity provides a meaningful advantage in determining the proper flow metering technology to match project-specific hydraulic conditions. 

  • Quality Reports
    We are committed to producing detailed, high-quality reports to achieve our client’s goals and would be happy to provide samples to compare against our competition. 

  • Data QA/QC
    Our QA/QC operating standard procedures is a combination of checks and balances to ensure our clients are receiving the utmost accurate data collection and reports. A few of the techniques include reviews for potential sensor drift (Figure 5), scatter plots analysis (Figure 6), and Manning’s curves comparison charts (Figure 7).
