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?

Meanwhile, the water outlook is ok in some parts of the US, like the mountain west, yet lack of rain and water around Los Angeles, California,  has contributed to catastrophic wild fires and the highest ranking fires of all time.

And on the other side of the globe, the world’s most ambitious water transfer program is under way in China. However, this water way aqueduct is not enough according to this Bloomberg analysis.

Piezometers and Vibrating Wires for Remotely Monitoring Levees, Bridges, and Water – IoT Applications and Case Studies

What’s a Piezometer?

Piezometers measure pressure of ground water. They’re sensors that are also known as vibrating wires or VWs, but note that they’re much smaller than the German vehicles.

After drilling holes to deploy and measure piezometers, the vibrating wire sensors can report information about pressure in an aquifer.

Basically, piezometers can be used to measure and monitor pressures of liquids.

Who makes piezometers / vibrating wires and where do you get them?

There are a variety of sensor hardware manufacturers that make piezometers, like:

Using sensor standards like RS-232 and 4-20 mA, along with open cloud-based monitoring software like Tools.Valarm.net, piezometers and any additional sensors are easily measured as often as needed.
