Kingston, ONTARIO – Utilities Kingston’s new real-time sewer monitoring system, a first in Ontario, is now live. The system alerts residents when untreated sewage overflows from waterfront pipes into Lake Ontario. It uses technology developed by Utilities Kingston to meet the needs of people who swim or boat in the city.
Today, Utilities Kingston unveiled a real-time sewage overflow monitoring and notification website. It is a great system designed to show the location of outflow pipes and report when they are discharging sewage. The system helps give important information to users while educating the public about the problems with combined sewage outflows.
