Future City Flow


Decision-support system for integrated stormwater management

Optimise wastewater system control strategies to reduce overflows and get the highest return on investment.

Future City Flow

High flows and infiltration/inflow in both combined and separate sewer networks is a rising concern. To ensure an ample supply of safe water, comply with environmental legislation and save costs, water utilities and operators need a more efficient way to manage wastewater inflow.

Future City Flow provides access to real-time simulation software and scenario-based planning tools to help buffer weather impact, population growth, resulting densification and aging infrastructure. Accessible from anywhere, this subscription-based cloud service allows users to identify potential improvements in existing wastewater systems within a set budget and timeline. By feeding SCADA, GIS and weather data into an online forecasting model and predicted control system, Future City Flow effectively targets I&I reduction.
