You made it. It’s 2019. Goodbye to 2018.
This is our 8th year helping organizations around the world to effectively monitor water and other assets. We’ve learned a bunch from our customers over the years. We’re grateful to share our experiences on how Industrial IoT sensors are helping organizations like yours to save time, money, and lives.
What’s been going on with your water so far this year?
In Virginia, government agencies and water officials are carefully monitoring water levels of dams after flood watches and warnings have been issued. Many dams are getting old and aren’t as structurally sound as they used to be. This is another excellent application of how today’s modern IoT sensor technologies can help save time, money, and lives if they are deployed for flood and water level monitoring.
Toxic chemicals have been found in the drinking water at homes in Michigan, according to this story. The Department of Environmental Quality has tested the water quality and found dangerous levels of toxins in the water. For some families, their homes had water with over 7 times the toxic levels according to the US EPA.
Water is becoming more and more scarce in the states. The U.S. government has just launched a project funding $100 million for helping to solve America’s water crisis. The research will include finding environmentally and economically sustainable methods for desalinating water in Smart Cities. Finding better, more effective ways to remove salt from water will provide us with a lot more safe, drinkable water.
You have technologies available today (like Industrial IoT, M2M, and sensor telemetry) that will help solve all of these issues above. We sincerely hope that you and your organization integrate Smart Water monitoring systems to help you save time, money, and lives.
Those are some highlights of what’s going on in your world of water monitoring this year. Happy New Year. May 2019 be an amazing year for you and your family.
