Real-Time Network Integrity & Performance Monitoring
REAL-TIME NETWORK WATER QUALITY INTEGRITY MONITORING
QualWatch enables water utilities to continuously monitor and assess network water quality dynamics as they occur, helping them identify breaches in water quality integrity and build the resiliency and agility to respond with minimal disruption to protect public health. It also empowers users to foresee and pre-empt future network water quality integrity breaches.
UNEQUALED WATER SECURITY FUNCTIONALITY
An invaluable water security and contamination warning system, QualWatch provides continuous online monitoring of water supply and distribution networks to detect and monitor contaminants and prevent security breaches. It can analyze standard water quality data (e.g., total chlorine, free chlorine, electrical conductivity, pH, total organic carbon, reduction potential and other parameters) from online water data with expected (modeled) values and recognize changes. It can help detect a wide variety of chemical and biological contaminants, including pesticides, metals, and pathogens — ensuring the water infrastructure is fully protected.
EFFECTIVE EARLY WARNING SYSTEM
The primary strength of QualWatch is its ability to monitor potential hazards fast enough to permit effective responses aimed at lessening or avoiding adverse public health and economic impacts. It makes the water quality integrity of the distribution system immediately visible through continuous monitoring and assessment of network water quality dynamics. QualWatch enables water utility operators to compare water quality data against regulatory requirements (e.g., minimum of 0.2 mg/L of free chlorine residual), either changes that fall outside normal water quality variations or the onset of anomalous water quality incidents they can evaluate and act on. The result is proactive network water quality management that ensures safety and security for all consumers.
