You’re almost to the end of your year.
What’s going on in your world of water monitoring?
Do we need more water monitoring systems to help us live safer and happier?
After recent wildfires in the US, like the fires in California, there is now a risk of dangerous water quality contamination. According to this story, water sheds may be contaminated making a critical need for more water quality monitoring systems.
Scientists don’t know exactly what combination of toxic organic compounds, metal mixtures, ash, debris, cars, industrial chemicals, paints, plastics, and other miscellaneous articles have found their way into our watersheds.
Rain and precipitation after wild fires have also caused mudslides and made roads impassable. This is another side of the wild fire issue, where flood warning systems and IoT sensors monitoring water levels are required to keep families and communities safe.
In the southern part of the USA, around Louisiana, there are also dangerous water quality issues. Some folks have to drive for many miles to wash their clothes, do laundry, and buy bottled water since the water at their homes has been making their families sick for months.
Is flooding becoming more intense and dangerous? Heavy rains and flood water levels killed multiple people in Australia a few days ago. The city had a month’s worth of rain in less than 2 hours. What do you think about that?
How do we help? Fortunately, today’s water monitoring systems are more affordable, effective, and easy to deploy. Cloud-based IoT sensor monitoring software makes it simple to verify when everything is ok in our environment or when smart cities need to send out alerts and early warnings.
