Early Warning Systems, Flood Monitoring, Hurricanes, Tropical Storms, and Measuring Water Levels with IoT Sensors

What time is it? It’s Hurricane season in the states and evacuations and warning are already underway.

A lot of the east coast, especially the southern part, in the USA has been evacuated as Hurricane Florence is about to land. It’s a category 4 hurricane according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) with wind gusts of 130 mph and getting stronger.

According to the New York Times, the interstate freeways and roads are being reversed for one-way traffic only in the direction that people get out of the dangerous areas.

Over a million folks have already been evacuated with their families.

Flooding.

Lots of water and huge increases in water levels.

How do you, your family, organizations and government agencies know what’s going on with water levels?

Imagine the world before we had the technology to predict and see what’s coming? Luckily, today’s technologies help keep you, your family, and your community safer.

Smart Cities on the east coast like Virginia are ready and have already deployed flood monitoring systems.

Managing and Monitoring Water Wells in 2018

Water Well Management Systems are critical for you and your family to maintain happy and healthy lives. How do organization effectively monitor water wells, pumps, and water levels? How can natural disasters like hurricanes and flooding affect aquifer and water well health? That’s what we’ll talk about in this write-up.

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Systems Water Air Quality Industrial IoT Monitor Sensors 60Hurricane Harvey caused widespread damage in the US, especially in Texas. Local universities and educational institutions like Texas A&M are collaborating to offer free water well testing to private well owners affected by hurricane flood waters.

Since floodwater can have upstream substances like sewage from wastewater treatment plants or flooded septic systems, it’s critical to test flooded water wells before using wells for drinking, cooking delicious meals, or anything else. Many residents in various communities have had private water wells damaged by flooding and needed new tanks and water well systems. Fluorocarbons used at airports and for fire fighting foams can also end up in water wells and reek havoc on communities like this one in Minnesota.

This recent study has called attention to the fact that more and more water systems in the U.S. are violating health standards. Being cost-effective with your water management is key, as damaged water wells can cost thousands of dollars for government agencies, businesses, companies, and other organizations. However, new water management systems can save you millions of dollars a year as demonstrated here. You might now be wondering…

How Do You Effectively Manage and Monitor Your Water Well Systems?

Fortunately, today’s technologies, like Industrial IoT sensors, provide you, your teams, and your organization with easy-to-use, rapidly deployable water well monitoring systems.

Valarm Water Well Monitoring Manging Wells Levels Industrial IoT Sensors Valarm 0You may already know that monitoring water wells and levels requires seamless integration of sensors like pressure transducers, pumps, and level sensors made by various hardware manufacturers like Flowline, In-Situ, McCrometer, EKM Metering, Eno Scientific, and Senix.

Managing water wells can be done from anywhere, and at any time. The water monitoring systems stay online 24/7/365 with mains power like 110V, or solar panel power, to provide you real-time information and alerts. You can quickly and easily answer questions like:

  • Valarm Water Well Monitoring Manging Wells Levels Industrial IoT Sensors Valarm 3Are your water well pumps active?
  • What’s the water level in each of your wells?
  • How many gallons per minute (gpm) are flowing through the flow meters right now?
  • What’s the total water usage – How many total gallons have flowed through your flowmeters?
  • Valarm Water Well Monitoring Manging Wells Levels Industrial IoT Sensors Valarm 2What’s your pump head room? Is your pump headroom at a dangerous or safe level?
  • What’s the depth to water and how much water is above your water level sensors, e.g., pressure transducers?

Water Monitoring and Industrial IoT Sensors for Fluids Telemetry – July 2017 News

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Systems Water Air Quality Industrial IoT Monitor Sensors 63 How far will you go for water? To the moon and back? There might be more water on the moon than we thought according to NPR and Scientific American.

During droughts, you’ve got folks all over the U.S. using quite a lot of water, like more than a gallon per minute by these Tampa Bay water hogs. While in Florida, water main breaks and repair activities have caused road closures. And citizens there are advised to boil all water before drinking or cooking. Similarly, Utah residents have been asked to limit water use after a major water line break.

You’re seeing droughts, water rationing, and weird water issues all over the world. In Rome, Italy, the climate, environment, and cities are drier than they’ve been for decades. Due to the heatwave, water sources could be turned off for 8 hours a day.

You ever wondered or been curious about what gets sent down the water drain? Lots of rubber bouncy balls, a rope monster, and even a snapping turtle have been found in wastewater treatment facilities in the Chicago area.

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Air Quality Water Pollution Industrial IoT Monitor Sensors 1Even though Michigan is surrounded by the Great Lakes and quite a load of water, there are still critical water crises. For example, there are the 5 state officials charged with involuntary manslaughter for the Flint public health crisis that led to an outbreak of disease, suffering children, and lead poisoning.

But according to this story, global companies and corporations like Nestle don’t pay anything for water, and they’re continuing to increase their water usage. This increase in pumping can lead to negative effects on local wetlands, aquatic habitats, and stream flow.

Also in the Midwest U.S., Minnesota is having more water quality problems. This article calls for something dramatic to happen for water management reform and improvement of water resources.

Since the federal EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) isn’t providing as much money to local and state governments for safeguarding and protecting ecosystems like water and air, other organizations need to help out with mandates and responsibility for monitoring our environment.

What’s going on with the water for your family, in your neighborhood?
