Maintenance of the collection system places a constant demand on a utility’s resources for personnel, equipment and management. All collection systems suffer from progressive and occasionally catastrophic occurrences from restrictions and blockages. Fat, oil and grease (FOG) can accumulate on pipe walls and serve to constrict flow. Given enough time, these sources of restriction and blockage will progressively impact capacity of a pipe.
This paper will look at the impact of SSOs, the current methods for addressing them and new, emerging technologies that can reduce the number of SSOs and potentially reduce capital requirements for this reduction.
