ADS introduces online answer engine for wet weather analyses

Designed to answer flow data questions for municipal engineers and consulting engineers to help prevent SSOs and CSOs, new website analyzes and delivers wet and dry weather data, calculating what-ifs with speed and precision...

HUNTSVILLE, AL, Feb. 17, 2005 -- ADS Environmental Services, the Wet Weather Analysis Expert, introduces Sliicer.comTM, a powerful set of online engineering tools designed for examining wastewater collection system dry and wet weather flow data. The website provides rigorous performance measurements, in a tenth of the time of other analysis tools, assuring that rehabilitation dollars can be correctly targeted.

" is a powerful 'Answer Engine' for wet weather analyses," states Pat Stevens, vice president of engineering for ADS Corp., parent of ADS Environmental which specializes in wastewater flow monitoring and data intelligence. "Most people have to see it, and experience it, to understand just how powerful and comprehensive it is. Wet weather questions are answered, and rehab decisions are validated, in seconds." assimilates massive quantities of data into calculations with multiple 'what-ifs.' It generates repeatable data in seconds, reducing expensive labor and answering questions about collection system performance. "For example," continues Stevens, " recently processed eight years of actual data from eight flow meters and 27 rain gauges. It generated dry day curves and run-off coefficients for each quarter including RDII values for 375 storms, all in under five minutes."

Accessible online using Citrix, allows the user to: incorporate scattergraph tools; assess the operational capacity of pipe; diagnose upstream and downstream SSOs; and animate the pipe's performance during rain events. Through 'Human-viewing-speed graphics,' it includes pre- and post-rehabilitation analyses, long term analyses and wet weather analyses featuring Rainfall, Dry Day, Scattergraph, Storm-by-Storm RDII, System-wide RDII and Q to i analyses.

ADS Environmental Services (, a division of ADS Corp., is a leading technology and service provider and a reliable source of knowledge to the global wastewater collection system industry. Monitors manufactured, installed and maintained by ADS measure over 4 billion gallons of flow daily across the globe. ADS delivers value to its clients by providing industry-leading solutions for flow monitoring, data analysis, reporting and field services.
