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?

Noise Pollution – Noise Monitoring Systems with Industrial IoT Sensors for Decibel Sound Levels and CH4 / Methane Gas

Noise Pollution – What do You think it is?

According to the USA Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), over 20 million workers are exposed to noise that can be damaging while they’re working.

Each year, businesses pay millions of $ / dollars in penalties because they’re not protecting their employees from high decibel loud noises.

Industrial IoT Sensors Monitoring Noise Sound Levels Decibels Valarm Methane CH4 Tools.Valarm.net 10In industrial environments, noise monitoring can be critical. Millions of dollars are spent every year on compensation for hearing loss disability.

These are extreme cases where noise levels are really loud. However, being in any kind of noisy environment can be distracting and unhealthy.

Spider web labyrinth might help reduce noise pollution in the future according to this article. And airplane noise regulations mean planes should get quieter. Noise pollution is a big focus in Africa and India, even in ‘silence zones‘.

Industrial IoT Sensors Monitoring Noise Sound Levels Decibels Valarm Methane CH4 Tools.Valarm.net 4You probably already knew that noise monitoring systems are useful in a wide variety of scenarios.

But how do you cost-effectively monitor noise today?

Is there a quick and easy way to install sound / noise monitoring devices and equipment?

Industrial IoT Sensors Monitoring Noise Sound Levels Decibels Valarm Methane CH4 Tools.Valarm.net 3Yep, thanks to today’s Industrial IoT sensor technology, noise monitoring has never been easier.

Take a gander at the photos to see noise monitoring systems that use IoT devices to measure decibels. These solar powered systems send regular noise sensor measurements to Tools.Valarm.net for your database management, analytics, graphing, mapping, and alerting.

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Industrial IoT Sensors Monitoring Noise Sound Levels Decibels Valarm Methane CH4 Tools.Valarm.net 8Pressure
  • Wind Direction
  • Precipitation & Rain Water Levels
  • CH4 / Methane Gas for Air Quality
