Water quality is safer in some communities than others. How is Your water for you and your family?
Around the US, communities near Santa Barbara, California, have reported clean water that meets or exceeds water quality standards. Although, with water in lakes and swimming holes, the CDC cautions you and your family to take care.
Years after the Flint, Michigan, water quality crisis, the doctor who exposed the problems now has a book about the dangerous water events. Even today, communities in New York have had high water demand leading to problems with dirty, brown water flowing out of the taps that is dangerous to consume. And as the next school year starts, schools in Flint will be using water jugs instead of water fountains.
While some communities and cities, e.g., Iowa, Wisconsin, and Maryland, are having flooding issues in need of flood warning systems, folks in North Carolina are required to conserve water due to the lack of rain.
Fortunately, today’s technologies, like Industrial IoT sensors, give government agencies and water authorities an easy and cost-effective way to monitor water levels and water quality.
For example, communities in Pennsylvania have installed new water quality monitoring systems to continuously monitor water factors, like conductivity / resistivity, in real-time. These systems help water management districts, municipalities, and smart cities to better serve citizens and keep families safe.
