Water News – May 2018

What’s going on in your water world? Here are a few curious stories that we recently found intriguing.

Is California moving towards better water management? See this write-up about 2 new bills that change water policy and confront issues like water wars, supplies, recycled water, changing climate, droughts, and how to make compromises with stakeholders and administrations.

How is water management related to blockchain technology? Have a look at this story for more on how blockchain can help water resources management and distribution.

In Wisconsin, the US EPA and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are carefully performing environmental monitoring and measuring air quality, as well as monitoring water quality (full story here) , after fires and explosions at an oil refinery that caused evacuations.

Today’s technologies like Industrial IoT sensors provide cost-effective monitoring systems for real-time monitoring and alerting for all things water, like:

Since 2012, we’ve been helping organizations deploy monitoring systems to save time and money, while improving operations and effectiveness.

Remotely Monitoring Water Levels, Usage, Groundwater, Rain, Fluids, and Floods

How and why do you need to monitor water? Water monitoring systems are more important than ever as the precious resource seems to come in quantities that are too much or too little.

Having too much water and rain is causing an increase in flooding in areas like North Carolina and Texas. Could it be climate change?

How about storing excess water underground to use at a later time when you’ve got a drought? This ‘thinking outside the box’ idea is used in California, Florida, and the pacific northwest in the U.S. Now Houston, Texas, is considering what they can do. Along with the help of hydrologists and engineers, this article details how Texas is researching how rainwater can be quickly pumped so it can avoid dangerous flooding conditions.

However, even as a water works case was won by farmers that should have helped with water pollution, the water is still polluted in Iowa according to this story.


What can you do about the need for better water monitoring?


How do you deploy effective water monitoring systems?
