How’s your air quality?
Years ago the EPA set safety levels for the airborne pollutant SO2 – Sulfur Dioxide.
So you might think that you and your family’s air complies with the standard and you’re not breathing gnarly, toxic gases, pollutants, and chemicals every day. Not so easy.
In Missouri there are coal power plants nearby the houses of citizens. This article explains how it may still be a number of years before sulfur dioxide monitoring stations are deployed around the Labadie Energy Center.
SO2 / Sulfur Dioxide isn’t the only airborne contaminant that’s harmful to your health. Ozone / O3, Nitrous Oxides / NOx, Nitrogen Dioxide / NO2, and Particulate Matter like Dust and PM2.5 are known to cause damage and reduce your lifespan.
However, you don’t want to wait for years for the government to do something about your air quality. If you want to take action, and are driven to make a difference, I believe that you can solve just about any issue. Today you’ve got EPA-grade, quality, cost-effective, cloud-based Industrial IoT gateways and Internet of Things devices and sensors.
For a fraction of the cost you can deploy your own air quality monitoring network to be confident and aware of your health, safety, and security. What’s to stop you from doing something about your environment
Please don’t hesitate to chat with me if you’ve got any questions or need help deploying air quality, water, or any other remote monitoring sensor networks.
Now how about your water?
Hopefully you don’t have any toxic algae blooming near your home! How does that happen like in Lake Okeechobee in Florida? Toxic algae can happen anywhere. Especially where there are tons of nitrogen, phosphorous, and fertilization runoff entering local lakes.
Warm temperatures and other environmental factors can also contribute to cyanobacteria / blue-green algae seeming to take over and infest your coastlines and/or waterways. As this article explains, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers discharged a large volume of an algae infested lake’s water.
This nutrient-polluted water was discharged in order to prevent flooding. However, you can see it had other effects as well. Our earth requires such a precious balance. It’s challenging when you try to fix 1 issue and another one results.
Today you, your family, community, and organizations have a variety of options for water and fluid monitoring. Industrial Internet of Things sensors and IoT devices give you affordable, rapidly deployable remote monitoring solutions. Whether you need to monitor water usage, fluid levels, mobile water and fluids in tanks on fleet vehicles, water quality, air quality, pollution, or anything else, it’s easier than you think.
