The development of an expert system for sewage treatment works management SewEx is described. This was built with the flex expert system toolkit. The system allows the diagnosis of problems in sewage sites which are managed by Welsh Water and accesses the surface assets database over a company network. Other uses of SewEx, such as what–if scenarios, maintenance and refurbishment are also outlined. A brief description of a tool, RuleGen, is given, which was built to ease the construction of the flex rule base. SewEx is currently on test at various sewage treatment works throughout parts of Wales and Herefordshire.
