When 215 MILLION gallons of radioactive treatment water drains through a sinkhole into Florida’s aquifer, every pond owner in the state takes notice. Sinkholes are becoming a common occurrence in Florida and with a recent environmental disaster involving a sinkhole under a treatment pond, the value (both environmentally and economically) of monitoring these systems has never been greater. DGC Environmental is now offering real-time, remote monitoring of environmental sites thanks to our new partnership with the real-time control experts at Opti.
What is so different about this approach?
Using state of the art equipment, innovative cloud-based technology, and real-time continuous monitoring, we can now reduce field expenses by limiting service visits to only when triggered by a maintenance condition, all while collecting continuous data and monitoring your system remotely. Pond water levels, flow monitoring and reporting, water quality monitoring and live camera inspection are now in real time and are available as services we provide. Opti’s current technology continuously monitors pond levels and calculates the expected drawdown rate of a facility; any deviation from this expected performance results in an instant alert to a technician who can login from any internet enabled device and get an in-depth look at the current status of the system. This real-time monitoring system could have prevented a large percentage of the discharged radioactive water from entering the aquifer through early identification of a rapid unexpected drawdown. Additional thresholds can be set to notify technicians of any abnormal water level drop, or rise (for flood mitigation), the instant it is picked up by professionally installed sensors. The future of stormwater maintenance is rapidly catching up with the rest of the constantly connected world.
Preventative maintenance of stormwater systems has never been so accessible and affordable. Have you considered reducing expenses and increasing visibility and control of your stormwater infrastructure? Contact us about how we can save you money and help you sleep at night.
