Township Collects System-Wide Water Data for Central Analysis

Transferring fresh water at a public works facility to keep up with demand is made easier with remote monitoring.


Many municipalities find collecting water and sewer information to be time-consuming, particularly if these measurements of water pressure, tank levels and such are performed in the field and taken back to a central headquarters for analysis.

Such was the case for Michigan’s Charter Township of Union, which provides water and sewer services for approximately 10,000 residents in a 28-square-mile area.

The answer for the township? Remote monitoring with centralized data analysis.

The township turned to the groov Box appliances and software solutions from Opto 22. With this approach, the township receives data on flow, power consumption and other key metrics system-wide. Monitoring the data from smartphones or PCs, staff can swiftly respond as conditions change.
