The Role of Data-Driven Decision-Making in Industrial Wastewater Treatment

The wastewater industry is embarking on a new era of data-driven decisionmaking, largely due to advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning. As professionals in this space, you know firsthand the complexities of managing wastewater treatment. With facilities nationwide facing aging infrastructure, tightening regulations, and limited resources, leveraging advanced data analytics is becoming indispensable. 

Pioneering Data-Driven Solutions with Seamless SCADA System Integration

This is where Freya Systems comes in. Our data science team is providing advanced solutions that are designed specifically for the wastewater sector, optimizing treatment plant operations and unlocking major efficiencies. Our team has extensive experience integrating with SCADA systems and other sources to harness data and identify anomalies. By combining real-time sensors, historical datasets, and predictive algorithms, we provide plant managers and operators with the actionable insights needed to improve performance.

Freya’s AI-enabled solutions integrate seamlessly with existing SCADA infrastructure. There’s no need for costly new equipment or complex implementations. Our solutions analyze trends in the background, requiring minimal personnel training. For example, our solution for a recent municipal water authority can analyze influent water quality and adjust treatment processes accordingly. This allows for precise, customized treatment instead of the traditional one-size-fits-all approach. 

Driving Efficiency and Cost Savings with AI Water Management

Operators receive an alert 30 minutes before the need to make decisions on aeration settings.  Energy usage analytics pinpoint this optimization opportunity, lowering electricity bills by 5% or more, which is significant knowing that electricity consumption accounts for 70% of their operating expense.  

​​Predictive Maintenance for Optimal Operations

Through a collaboration with the team at the treatment plant, Freya was able to identify additional solutions where abnormalities are flagged in realtime.  By analyzing trends in historical data, our algorithms forecast future equipment failures, polymer usage, and even effluent flowing quality. The wastewater operator can act ahead of time instead of reacting after the fact. This predictive maintenance enables flawless operations at peak efficiency.

​Bridging the Gap: Freya’s Expertise

Partnering with Freya, you can collaborate on projects to achieve substantial results in: 

  • Reduced operating costs
  • More efficient polymer usage 
  • Decreased energy consumption
  • Minimized permit violations
  • Extended equipment lifespan through predictive maintenance

Of course, adopting new technology is never easy, especially for an industry as entrenched in tradition as water treatment. Many plants face generational divides in their workforces, with younger employees eager to innovate while veterans prefer trusted methods. And with limited budgets and resources, exploring unproven AI solutions may seem risky. This is where Freya’s expertise makes all the difference. Our team has decades of combined experience bridging cultural divides and championing data science in risk-averse industries.  Our goal is to collaborate with your team and plant personnel, earning buy-in through training and support. With Freya as your partner, employees gain the data science skills needed to unlock transformative efficiencies. 

The benefits translate to bottomline savings, operational excellence, and environmental stewardship. Thanks to a partnership with Freya, intuitive interfaces with existing SCADA systems, a system that plant personnel have embraced, foster a seamless adoption.
