Abstract

Sewage system which is considered as a way of managing and transporting wastewater from its unhealthy and unhygienic state, treated and recycled to be used for the daily water source activities.It has always been considered that sewer pipe blockage, being a serious problem when it comes to sewage system therefore creating series of backdrop in the form of mosquitoes breeding which causes various diseases, unhealthy environment, and issues of backups in domestic, commercial and industrial buildings.Looking at the rise in population growth, it will prove more hectic and problematic if the sewer pipe blockages are not fully prioritized thereby finding proper ways of mitigating this unwanted catastrophe. In response to this situation, a new concept for mitigating, monitoring and observing the condition within and outside the sewer pipe is being introduced to systematically reduce the problem to a zero minimal tendencies of obstacles that can create a blockage or crack in sewer pipes.A lot of researches have made impacts in mitigating and locating these problems, but this research will be mainly focused on achieving a minimal to zero blockages. Within this context of study, the research is aimed at actualizing the systematic way at which sewer pipe blockage can be avoided or monitored by the use of an effective and efficient wastewater pre-filtering mechanism which the model will be tested to separate wastewater debris and at the same time reduce the FOG (Fat, Oil and Grease) sediments that can cause clogging and then blockage on the long run. The model will function in a way as to automatically deviate or move the waste water debris to a depositing space while the waste water liquid substance is transported via sewer pipe to the central waste water treatment zone integrating geographic information system (GIS) which is the use of spatial analysis in tracking and locating any form of roots or tree growth along the sewer pipe therefore minimizing the issues of cracks due to root obstruction etc. Results of the study will be based on Malaysia as a case study.
