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.

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?

What do you think? Surprisingly, this article details how a 10 year study tells you the link between Alzheimer’s Disease, Air Quality, and Pollution.

The results show that when you breathe polluted air you increase your likelihood of developing dementia. Poor air quality and particulates can be caused by a variety of sources like exhaust from vehicles, buses, cars, and trucks.

You might have figured that air quality and pollution negatively affect your health. Particularly when it comes to health risks and problems like lung disease, asthma, and cardiovascular disease. Now you’re seeing how smog and poor air quality also hurt your brain.


Where in your world are the best and worst countries for air quality indexes and pollution?

When it comes to air quality, how does the U.S. stack up vs. China, the European Union and other countries around the world?

You probably guessed that China has some of the worst issues with air quality indexes. You’d be right as far as this story says. The article lists the good, the bad, and the ugly on air quality in countries around the world. Results are included based on findings by organizations like the World Health Organization / WHO.

Air Pollution Around Our World – How Do You Measure and Monitor An Air Quality Index?

Air quality pollution index remote monitoring Industrial IoT Internet of Things IIoT Sensors Devices Measure PM2.5 Ozone Ammonia Sulfur Dioxide Nitrous OxidesHow bad is your air quality getting to be? It’s clearly a problem in our world that’s getting more attention.

In Oslo, Norway, diesel cars and vehicles have been banned for days due to acute hazardous air pollution. And this write-up explains how all of northern India fails to meet basic air quality standards.

Air quality indexes and standards are based on what sensors measure in the environment. Gnarly gases and things like Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Particulate Matter (PM2.5), Ozone (O3), Nitrous Oxides (NOx), Ammonia (NH3), and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2).

Why care? Would you believe that in Europe more people die each year from air quality problems than  from car, vehicle, and road traffic accidents? Sounds crazy to me, but this report explains to you how that’s true.

What can you do to help? Changes in society are will help. No one wants to be told what to do, but it’s mentioned in this article that you can help by eating less meat, driving less cars, taking public transit, and other things that may seem obvious. Lifestyle changes are difficult, yet walking more might help your health too.

Your World’s Air Quality & Water Pollution – Toxic Algae + SO2 / Sulfur Dioxide


How’s your air quality?

remotemonitoringairqualityboxagriculturesoilmoistureYears ago the EPA set safety levels for the airborne pollutant SO2 – Sulfur Dioxide.

So you might think that you and your family’s air complies with the standard and you’re not breathing gnarly, toxic gases, pollutants, and chemicals every day. Not so easy.

In Missouri there are coal power plants nearby the houses of citizens. This article explains how it may still be a number of years before sulfur dioxide monitoring stations are deployed around the Labadie Energy Center.

SO2 / Sulfur Dioxide isn’t the only airborne contaminant that’s harmful to your health. Ozone / O3, Nitrous Oxides / NOx,  Nitrogen Dioxide / NO2, and Particulate Matter like Dust and PM2.5 are known to cause damage and reduce your lifespan.

air-quality-monitoring-3d-pollution-map-mapping-pm2-5-ozone-nitrous-oxides-sulfur-dioxide-so2-no2-nox-o3-pm1-pm10However, you don’t want to wait for years for the government to do something about your air quality. If you want to take action, and are driven to make a difference, I believe that you can solve just about any issue. Today you’ve got EPA-grade, quality, cost-effective, cloud-based Industrial IoT gateways and Internet of Things devices and sensors.

For a fraction of the cost you can deploy your own air quality monitoring network to be confident and aware of your health, safety, and security. What’s to stop you from doing something about your environment

Now how about your water?

industrial-iot-water-monitoring-air-quality-pollution-remote-internet-of-things-sensor-devicesHopefully you don’t have any toxic algae blooming near your home! How does that happen like in Lake Okeechobee in Florida? Toxic algae can happen anywhere. Especially where there are tons of nitrogen, phosphorous, and fertilization runoff entering local lakes.

Warm temperatures and other environmental factors can also contribute to cyanobacteria / blue-green algae seeming to take over and infest your coastlines and/or waterways. As this article explains, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers discharged a large volume of an algae infested lake’s water.

This nutrient-polluted water was discharged in order to prevent flooding. However, you can see it had other effects as well. Our earth requires such a precious balance. It’s challenging when you try to fix 1 issue and another one results.
