Flood Warning Systems Monitoring Water Levels With IoT Sensors

Water-Monitoring-IoT-Sensors-Flood-Warning-Systems-Valarm-Tools-Cloud-Water-Levels-Tools.Valarm.net-47Water levels are rising. Flooding is happening more often year after year.

Whether it’s hurricanes, glaciers melting, climate change,  or anything else, we do know  1 thing for  sure   — that water levels will continue to rise in the future.

Monitoring water levels with flood warning systems is more crucial than  ever.

What’s the most effective way to monitor water levels?

Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) sensor systems give you, your teams, and your organization the most effective solution for monitoring water.

The  IoT has come of age, and this means that your organization can rapidly deploy cost-effective water monitoring systems.

In the photos here you’re seeing additional flood warning systems that have been installed in recent weeks on the east coast of the USA.

These flood warning systems are in Smart Cities like Virginia Beach and Newport News in the state of Virginia.

IoT water level sensors upload readings to cloud-based systems like Tools.Valarm.net where authorities, clients, citizens, and anyone else who needs the information can view, map, graph, or use IoT APIs to view  critical information  on dashboards on your computer, tablet, or phone.

Deploying and installing water level monitoring systems  for flood warnings

You, your teams, and your organization  can rapidly deploy water level monitoring systems with cost-effective Industrial IoT sensors. For 10 years, we’ve been helping government agencies, businesses, and organizations all around the world to use sensor monitoring systems to save lives, time, and money.

Water Shortages, Droughts, Floods, and Cowboys Transporting Icebergs

Water is a hot issue today. No matter where you live, it seems like there’s not enough or too much.  What’s going on? Are we actually seeing important changes or is today’s hyper-connected society just making us feel like catastrophes are happening constantly?

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Systems Water Air Quality Industrial IoT Monitor Sensors 65This article explains how America has a water crisis that’s making water cost too much money for millions of families. You’ve probably heard about what happened in Flint, Michigan. The story explains how a third of Americans won’t be able to afford to pay for their water by 2020.

The high costs are mostly due to out dated infrastructure and water pipe networks that need to be upgraded around the country. You can see water districts are already trying to increase water bill rates by 83% in Sacramento.

They’ve got massive flooding and way too much water. Events have been canceled in New York since the lake is dangerous. Even recreational boaters have been negatively impacted and are delaying going out in the water.

Now Nestle’s Arrowhead water has been called out with challenges around how much money they’re making by bottling and selling California’s water. Is this because public agencies and government entities have dropped the ball? You can decide for yourself about the sustainability of water and how renewable of a resource it is. How much profit should gigantic multinational businesses be allowed to gain from public natural resources?

However, they’ve got enough money to make it feasible to bring an iceberg to the UAE. Will they do it? Take a gander at this story for more on how these iceberg cowboys are hoping to be the first folks to tow an iceberg thousands of miles and kilometers.

These stories all tie together in the fact that water monitoring systems help to effectively address all of our water needs. After all, how many days can you and your family live without water?

Sensors and Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) make it easy to remotely monitor water. Whether it’s water levels and flooding, water quality like pH, or monitoring water usage and water wells, we’ve got to make sure we’re making the most of what we’ve got.

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?


industrial-iot-water-monitoring-air-quality-pollution-remote-internet-of-things-sensor-devicesWater monitoring systems can be powered via any power source, like standard mains 110V wall outlets or a solar panel.

You can use the most appropriate internet connectivity for each deployment, whether it’s WiFi, GSM mobile cell network, or Ethernet.
