What is EDM Monitoring?

Event Duration Monitoring (EDM) is a critical aspect of managing wastewater systems. EDM monitors, such as those provided by Detectronic, track the duration and frequency of overflow events, which occur when the capacity of a wastewater system is exceeded. These events can lead to pollution and environmental damage if not properly managed and reported.

The Role of Accurate Data

Accurate data is fundamental to effective EDM monitoring. Reliable measurements ensure that overflow events are correctly recorded, enabling water utilities to address issues promptly. Accurate data also supports compliance with environmental regulations and helps in planning infrastructure improvements.

Transparency in reporting is essential to maintain public trust. Detectronic’s EDM monitors, such as the MCERTS-certified LIDoTT sensor, provide precise and reliable data, ensuring that reporting is both accurate and transparent. This transparency is vital in demonstrating that water utilities are responsibly managing overflow events and mitigating their impact.

Public Pressure and Accountability

In recent years, public pressure has increased for greater accountability in environmental management. Communities are more aware of the impact of wastewater overflows and demand greater transparency from water utilities. By using advanced EDM monitors like the LIDoTT sensor, utilities can provide the detailed reporting required to meet public expectations and regulatory standards.

Detectronic’s LIDoTT sensor is an MCERTS-certified EDM monitor designed to offer precise measurements of water levels and overflow events. This sensor plays a crucial role in helping water utilities manage their systems more effectively and transparently.

EDM monitoring is indispensable for modern wastewater management. Accurate data, transparency, and accountability are critical components in this process. By investing in reliable EDM monitors like the LIDoTT sensor, water utilities can meet regulatory requirements and maintain public trust.
