MONACO USES ALARM SOFTWARE TO PROTECT BEAUTIFUL MEDITERRANEAN WATERS
MONACO USES ALARM SOFTWARE TO PROTECT BEAUTIFUL MEDITERRANEAN WATERS
Monaco’s sanitation department uses alarm software to monitor its water treatment facilities. With connections to the waste water networks, the main lifting stations, three storm overflows, a storm tank, as well as waste water pre-treatment and final treatment operations, the department can rest assured that they know exactly what is – and what is not – being put back into the ocean on a regular basis.
The City of Calgary using data to predict and mitigate floods
Every year, spring rains and snowmelt pour into the rivers and reservoirs that feed the City of Calgary’s water supply. As a result, downtown businesses and residents are faced with unpredictable floods that could do millions of dollars of damage. The City of Calgary turned to the PI System for a data-driven approach to predicting and managing flooding.Both the Bow and Elbow rivers flow through Calgary’s borders and provide fresh water to the system. These rivers carry the runoff, rainfall, and snowmelt from nearly 9,000 kilometers of land and the water is collected in two primary reservoirs managed by the City of Calgary. To ensure a safe, consistent, supply of water for its customers, the City of Calgary must keep a close eye on both the quality and quantity of water in these rivers and reservoirs. One of the biggest challenges in doing so is the region’s annual floods. Each year, between May and June, snowmelt, runoff, and rainstorms cause the water levels in the rivers to increase substantially. Preparing for flood-level waters is part of the utility’s annual plans, but predicting when, precisely, they would occur was another matter. Water tables can change quickly and the utility must balance flood risks against continuing to meet user demand and maintaining reservoir levels and water quality. During a flood event, the utility is faced with a surge in water volume through its system. Before water reaches the reservoirs, it must be treated and the sudden increase in volume caused by the floods often overwhelmed the treatment plants, resulting in quality issues. Furthermore, City of Calgary lacked timely information that would let it reduce reservoir volume in advance of a flood. As a result, emergency response often struggled to respond as flood waters reached downtown. The resulting damages — including residential and commercial insurance claims, water quality issues, system downtime, and regulatory fines — could total in the millions. To reduce the impact of floods on its customers and its business, City of Calgary, turned to the PI System.

Intelligent Urban Water Supply
Intelligent Urban Water Supply
Intelligent Urban Water Supply Management refers to a cloud service that provides a fully integrated multi-function, multi-service, multi-role and multi-tenant solution.Water, after air, is the second most critical natural resource our lives depend upon. Maintaining adequate clean and safe water supply to urban residents has become ever-challenging. This is especially so under the pressure from the rapid urbanization of the populations in developing countries and increasingly severe constraints of available water resources in many parts of the world. The situation is exacerbated by the inadequate and aging equipment deployed in the water supply infrastructure and the ineffectiveness in the management of the operations of the equipment. The consequence of these conditions impacts to the health and quality of lives of millions of urban residents. 
Water Quality and Leakage Monitoring System
Water Quality and Leakage Monitoring System
Smart Water Monitoring Platforms are ultra-low-power sensor nodes designed for use in rugged environments and deployment in hard-to-access locations. They detect damages in the water supply infrastructure and potential risks to public health or environmental damage in real-time. Water leaks typically go undetected or are responded to only after the event. Therefore, a significant amount of water is lost due to excessive irrigation (only 70% of water supplied is consumed by agriculture).
Gas and Water Meter Reading
Gas and Water Meter Reading
Smart gas and water meters will provide a wealth of information that can help utilities and their consumers in many ways – from allowing fully automated billing based on time of use or network status (e.g., with prices rising and falling according to peak and trough usage) to enabling meter-to-appliance communications to help change consumer energy behavior.In the case of gas and water meters, RF communication is an increasing requirement because of the increasing availability of AMI (advanced metering infrastructure) architecture, with the smart electricity meter often acting as the gateway to the utility for meter reading.
