CP029  Wastewater Pollution Load Monitor Instrumentation Sewerage
LOADMON was a three year research and development project funded by the EC BRITE/EURAM scheme. The project involved: Dublin City University, Ireland; OPDIX Optoelectronic and Günter Kämper, Germany; Interenge, Portugal; Mejoras Energeticas, Spain; Aquafin, Belgium; ASM Brescia, Italy and was co-ordinated by WRc, UK.

The LOADMON Project developed instrumentation, using non-contact techniques, to measure a range of physical, organic and inorganic parameters in wastewater. The aim was to measure organic and solids load using methods that are robust and will not foul in a demanding measurement environment. An optical system was used with sophisticated data processing, capable of safe use in a hazardous atmosphere.

Target applications include continuous monitoring of industrial discharges, inlet streams to sewage works, measurements of flow and load within sewer networks and monitoring of plant discharges. The ability to pre-empt peak loads arriving at wastewater treatment plants will allow improved treatment and provide a more reliable effluent quality. LOADMON will also support the move towards pollution control over large regions, especially of intermittent and variable discharges.
