Every day in the United States, an incredible 6 billion gallons of treated water is lost because of leaking pipes at water utilities. At the same time, contaminants from aging pipes across our water supply infrastructure are entering our drinking water, putting millions of consumers at risk of illness.
Because of those reasons, and others, water and wastewater facilities have begun to implement IoT technology. Water leak detection equipment with smart sensors collects data in real-time, alerting managers to breakdowns and contaminants in pipes.
By 2025, water shortages will adversely affect 66% of the world’s global population.
What can you as the manager or operator of a water or wastewater facility do to help?
Picture the ability to monitor and control every process and operation at your water or wastewater facility. What would the best water monitoring system do? At MCA, we want to enable water management utilities to promptly diagnose and detect any issue that may arise in your water system. Our Mission-Critical Internet of Things (MC-IoT) solutions make it possible for your water treatment facility to take care of your municipality, county or city’s water supply.
At MCA, our Industrial IoT solutions provide water and wastewater facilities the ability to monitor and control their water supplies. With our systems, well pumping can be automated to manage water quality and energy consumption.
Industrial IoT allows you to oversee reservoir volumes and adjust pressure levels to maximize the efficiency of delivery. We help operators react to line breaks and equipment failures more expertly and efficiently, maintaining the highest levels of service and safety for your customers.
Make sure your operators are always ready to respond to water quality issues and leaks in real-time by leveraging your digital radio network for M2M data services and communication. Motorola’s ACE3600 RTU’s and MC-EDGE Intelligent Gateways from MCA transmits data from machines in your water utility across your land mobile radio (LMR) system.
With this modem, you can:
