News on Water – April 2018

It’s been 4 years since the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Dangerous levels of lead contaminated the water supply after the city switched to using the local river as a water source. Meanwhile, in other parts of Michigan, permits have been granted for increases of water extraction for bottled water plants.

The latest science research says that vegetation regulates and controls the future of our water cycle. Vegetation plays a more critical role than we may have thought, when on water stress and our water resources.

New water testing equipment in San Diego, California, is being installed to have automatic, precise, real-time water measurement readings. These are in response to citizens complaining that they were being charged and billed for more water than they were actually using.

Do you use less water when there’s a drought and water levels are down? Since the California drought emergency has been called off by an executive order, are communities back to using as much water as before the drought? This story has more about how folks may have become lazy when it comes to water conservation, and what this means for you and your family.

Your Water Monitoring, Remote Sensor Telemetry, & Industrial IoT News – December 2017

You probably know that your water is a precious resource. You and your family can’t live long without water. We’ve been in the trenches, working closely with our customers, to learn through years of experience – what’s the most effective way to remotely monitor water and other sensors? Below we’ll share some recent industry news that you’ll likely find helpful.

Is your water safe? Pipeline companies need to remove diesel contaminated slurry from quarries near water wells in Ohio. Many of these projects costs billions of dollars to mitigate after violations have been cited by the Environmental Protection Agency. Do you think any of these dumpings, like slurry for lubricating equipment, go unnoticed?
