Remote Water Monitoring Station

Better water resource control through technology

Business Case

Climate change is no longer a hypothesis. It’s happening and it now has real consequences to the global water resources.

It leads to 4 times increase in floods in the EU alone since 1980 (source) and floods are causing 40 billion euro in damage each year (source). It results in 21 million people being affected by river floods every year (source). And in the same time 25% of the population is facing a water crisis (source).

Governing bodies on national, regional and local level are facing this challenge every day – not only to prevent flooding but to ensure enough water supply during the dry years. Reactive (crisis) management of water resources in no longer viable as it comes with huge economical losses, damaged infrastructure, and lost lives. The solution lies in the proactive approach of real-time data gathering that empowers equitable data driven decisions and efficient and effective water resource management in both dry and wet years.

A network of cost-efficient Remote Water Monitoring Stations provides real-time data and mapping of water levels, water velocity, precipitation, water quality, and other parameters on key water resources (such as rivers and dams, including their inflows and outflows), regardless of scale. It empowers decision makers to model proactively how areas can be affected, utilizing multiple parameters and actual weather conditions, and make equitable data-driven decisions on the most optimal measures in critical situations.

Benefits to Customers
