Reduction of spills : Exploiting the network's storage capacities



Limit discharges from the sewerage network to the receiving environment via storm overflows and optimise implementation costs for the project owner.

1. Installation in thunderstorm overflow - Deomatic valve

The 3D EAU solution

Exploit the storage capacities of existing networks with the help of carefully positioned tilting valves developed and implemented by HYDRASS-3D WATER. 

The Déomatic valve makes it possible to set the discharge height according to the capacity of the upstream network in order to store during current rains and to maintain the discharge capacity for heavy rains.


Dry weather 

Valve closed,
no impact on the network


Current rain

Valve closed,
network storage


Heavy rain

Valve open,
limited impact on the network

2. Networking - Stocko valve

The Stocko valve makes it possible, when there is no discharge point, to store in the upstream manifold for routine rainfall without limiting its discharge capacity for heavy rainfall.

Reason managers are encouraged to test the impact of the Déomatic and StockO valves in their network models using the tool proposed by HYDRASS-3D EAU for this purpose.

Dans le cadre d'un schéma directeur d'assainissement, en cas de non-conformité du système de collecte par temps de pluie, le stockage en réseau pourra être l'un des scénarios à étudier afin d'optimiser le programme de travaux proposé.

Proposed general methodology

Phase 1 - Feasibility study

Taking into account the real environment of the work.


Characterisation of the hydraulic behaviour of the future valve to guarantee a good integration in the existing environment.

  • Less costly alternative to the creation of basins

  • Mechanical system that does not require a power supply

  • Can be integrated into a hydraulic network model

  • Instrumentable device for self-monitoring purposes

  • Anti-return function possible in case of downstream influence of the receiving medium
