Will Flooding Water Levels Go Higher?

Are we seeing more flooding these days than in the past?

This study researched how often floods are happening and the impacts and damage they cause in the US. Due to sea level rise, flood risk management is an increasingly important need for your and your family’s community.

Key US cities and locations like San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Hawaii, and Florida are forecasted to be deluged in more floods in the coming years.

Using estimates of sea level rise, frequencies, and tide gauges, this Climate News article explains how flooding risk calculations are made.

Flood monitoring systems, like those deployed on beaches and in Smart Cities in Virginia, will increase in numbers.

Flood monitoring systems are 1 important way that Industrial IoT sensors and remote environmental monitoring technologies are helping keep you, your community, and your family safe. With early warning systems and detection of water levels, we’ll be able to better steer clear of hazards that mother nature and water create. Are you ready to help?

Is Your Air Quality Getting Better or Worse?

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Air Quality Water Pollution Industrial IoT Sensors 50Your air quality can damage you and your family’s health. The air you breathe every day can contribute to health issues like cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.

It’s challenging to remotely monitor air quality. And what are the most destructive air pollutants when it comes to You and Your Family’s health? Ozone, nitrous oxides, ammonia, smog, sulfur dioxide, dust or particulate matter like PM2.5?

This article from Science magazine breaks down our world’s most dangerous cities in terms of air quality. You’ll see that a lot of gigantic cities around the world have citizens at risk. Residents of Los Angeles, California, Beijing, China, and Karachi, India, are exposed to high amounts of ozone / O3.  Have a look at the maps in the article that give you an idea of air quality levels around the world.

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Air Quality Water Pollution Industrial IoT Sensors 44According to this Reuters article, China’s air quality has gotten significantly worse this year compared to last year. California has passed the strictest methane emissions regulations in the United States.

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Air Quality Water Pollution Industrial IoT Sensors 51See this story for more about how the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Southern California Air Quality Management District (SC – AQMD) monitor and enforce compliance of air quality emissions like methane. And have a look here for how folks in the Los Angeles Inland Empire are rallying for cleaner air quality goals.

More communities around the world are becoming involved in improving their air quality. Events like air quality expos raise awareness of air pollution issues. Take a gander at this article for more info on green plans and an air quality expo in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Remotely Monitoring Water Infrastructure, Pipes, Usage, and Quality

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Air Quality Water Pollution Industrial IoT Monitor Sensors 8How valuable is water for you?

Too much water in the Oroville Dam caused a water crisis when the levee broke. Over 100,000 California residents and citizens had to get out and evacuate their houses.

What happened? As this article mentions – there was too much water, Army Corps standards are unsafe, and we need to store less water there in the dam.

Does this mean that now’s the time for California spend more money on water? There’s been double the usual quantity of rain.

And a 5 year California drought has ended.  Have a look at this LA Times write-up on what the governor is likely to do about water.

See this NPR story about how critical it is for your water treatment plants and infrastructure to be safely maintained.

What about water flow meters and water usage? Water distribution pipes rupturing? Another reason to remotely monitor water and industrial equipment to know when it needs fixing.

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Air Quality Water Pollution Industrial IoT Monitor Sensors 21Take a look here to see a recent example in Texas where a community could not drink water from the tap before boiling it first. You and your family can quickly become at risk due to water leaks and water pipe problems.

The mayors of Chicago and Montreal have warned about environmental impacts of cutting EPA funding. This article discusses more about this topic and other critical, clean water at the recent Urban Waterways Forums.


How can you help your water situation?

Tools.Valarm.net Water Monitoring Wells Depths Flow Meters Industrial IoT Internet of Things Applications Water Resources Management Sensors Map DashboardYou know that your water resources need to be managed effectively.

Fortunately, today’s technologies like Industrial Internet of Things / IoT sensors allow you to remotely monitor water.

These water monitoring systems are rapidly deployable and extremely cost-effective. Whether it’s monitor water quality, water usage, or anything else fluids related, it’s quicker and easier than you think.
