HUNTSVILLE, AL, April 12, 2006 -- ADS Environmental Services, a full-service sewer flow monitoring provider, today announces the award of two, three-year contracts from Oakland County Drain Commissioner John P. McCulloch. The first, the Clinton-Oakland Contract, is for a 26-monitor billing network. The second is the renewal of the Evergreen-Farmington Contract, a 78-monitor network. The performance of this collection system and the long-term network of flow monitors have been successfully managed by the company since 1991.
"We, as a team, are dedicated to providing cost-effective, quality-driven solutions, which best meet the needs of the public," states Brian Bennett, Operations Engineer of the Oakland County Drain Commissioner's Office. "After careful consideration of all competing bids, we chose to continue our partnership with ADS, with its 14 years of past performance in Oakland County, the cost-efficiency of their equipment and services, and the accuracy and reliability of their products."
The new billing network will place 26 ADS FlowShark¿§ monitors in key locations to ensure billing accuracy for adjoining communities. Both contracts include field services and data analysis from ADS. Data will be analyzed using Profile¿§ 3.0 their newly released desktop software and reports will be delivered to Oakland County via FlowView Portal¿§, the new ADS web-hosted data delivery system.
The company was selected for this new billing network following a six-month trial where ADS area velocity monitors were compared with an alternate technology. A large portion of the evaluation criteria for this test was how well the monitors performed during peak flow (wet weather) events. After review, the ADS® monitors were found to better represent actual flows during trial period peak flows. This along with the convenience of a local ADS field office, the relationship Oakland County has shared with ADS for 14 years, and the competitive pricing of monitors were instrumental in the award of the contract.
