Flow Control

Managing flow generated after rainfall or snowmelt events is an important consideration when determining conveyance infrastructure, flood prevention strategies and end of pipe erosion reduction.

Uncontrolled flows may overload existing drainage systems causing flooding and deterioration of conveyance infrastructure owing to increased velocities. In combined sewer systems, this same overload caused by uncontrolled flows to wastewater treatment plants may result in an overall reduction of treatment efficiency.

EMCO is proud to offer simple means of controlling excessive water runoff is by controlling excessive flows at their origin (manholes).
