Weather, particularly severe weather, can substantially impact your operations. Strong storms and significant rainfall can cause problems by sending excess storm water through your collection systems.
Your pumping station operators, who are responsible for sending all water to your treatment plant, need to be informed when such conditions are expected. This allows them to prepare by opening and closing valves appropriately. In addition, your operations and employees are vulnerable to lightning strikes.
With MxVision WeatherSentry Water Utility Edition, you can anticipate potential issues due to heavy rainfall, lightning, and local severe weather events. Knowing the accurate timing and specific location of an oncoming storm helps your team to avoid operational upsets, work efficiently and safely, protect your water supply, and provide optimum public service. It also helps you to improve your staffing efficiency.

A preemptive strike
Lightning is a serious concern. It puts your people and operations at risk. Lightning Manager® delivers real-time strike information for the United States, rather than predictions that can lead to false alarms or delayed data, which often provides notification after the danger has already passed.
