Vodokanal participates in All-Russian Climate Week


Specialists of SUE “Vodokanal of St. Petersburg” presented the results of their work on introduction of the Automatized Information System for Atmospheric Precipitation Recording (AIS “Osadki”) in St. Petersburg within the framework of the forum and exhibition “Weather. Climate. Water/Remote Sensing of the Earth/Green Economy”.

The forum and exhibition was held from June 14 to 15 in the exhibition complex EXPOFORUM and organized in the framework of the Year of Ecology in Russia and the All-Russian Climate Week.

A joint exhibition stand of OOO KNTP (Innovation Engineering & Environmental Safety in Water Treatment) and SUE "Vodokanal of St. Petersburg" was arranged at the Forum showing detailed information on step-by-step introduction of the Automatized Information System for Atmospheric Precipitation Recording (AIS “Osadki”) in St. Petersburg.

Development of AIS “Osadki” is an important part of the project of implementing St. Petersburg Wastewater Management System as it is stipulated in the Water and Wastewater Master Plan approved by the City Government.

Today, there is Vodokanal and Hydrometeorological Center integrated observation network of the in St. Petersburg consisting of 34 rain gauges and 7 meteorological stations. They provide necessary coverage of the city and the nearest suburbs to measure the amount of precipitation.

AIS “Osadki” system capability is (but not limited to) 24-hour collection of data on the amount of precipitation in St. Petersburg and the nearest suburbs with an interval of 5 minutes. The system also can calculate and generate reports on volumes of surface runoff and water balance taking into account spatial heterogeneity of precipitation. In addition, thanks to this system, it became possible to form an ultra-short-term forecast (up to 12 hours with update every 3 hours).

Data of AIS “Osadki” allows to react to sewerage networks emergency situations promptly, to divert flows along the sewer network in conditions of heavy precipitation and to minimize the risk of sewage entering directly into water bodies without treatment and flooding of territories.
