Water supply stormwater monitoring
Many homes, both in urban and rural areas, depend on water supply from open reservoirs. While water supply groundwater monitoring tracks the quality of groundwater, which changes only slowly, water supply stormwater monitoring is concerned with detecting sediment and contaminates that might be swept into reservoirs and stream by rainwater.
The inherent unpredictability of storm events means that water supply stormwater monitoring can be quite a challenge – but automated devices are now capable of rain, flow, water level, water quality and water release monitoring in a variety of sites in real time, while sump monitoring can enable homeowners with flooded basements to respond immediately.
Water supply groundwater monitoring
Spillage of oils and various industrial byproducts, chemical fertilizers and runoff from agrobusinesses is a growing concern for potable water suppliers and the people who depend on them for drinking and home use water. Water supply groundwater monitoring systems can provide an early warning for the changes of groundwater levels quality and salinity. Thus, water supply groundwater monitoring enables rapid remediation and damage control. Ongoing water supply groundwater monitoring can also identify long term trends, thereby enabling better preventive maintenance of groundwater supply systems.
