Narragansett Bay Commission

Flow Monitoring Program
Providence, RI

The Narragansett Bay Commission (NBC) is the largest wastewater authority in Rhode Island and is responsible for the operation of approximately eighty-nine (89) miles of combined sewer interceptors, many of which are over one-hundred (100) years old. For over a decade, EST was contracted by the commission to install, calibrate, replace, and maintain continuous flow monitoring and rain gauge equipment throughout the NBC service area. EST’s contract has included monthly monitoring of up to sixty (60) sites using permanent and temporary open channel flowmeters. The permanent meters are equipped with internal modems connected to dedicated phone lines. EST performed maintenance, calibration, and troubleshooting of the flow meters and communications systems and initiates communications with permanent flowmeters monthly to upload the monitoring data at selected CSO sites. Services also included the installation of rain gauges and meter testing, repair, and replacement. EST provided traffic control necessary to maintain the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic with as little disruption as possible.
