Learn firsthand how the City of Galveston is using online monitoring in the distribution system to deliver greater operational insight.
With a meter changeout program in progress, the City of Galveston, Texas—prone to seasonal changes in water use and stress on their distribution system due to tourism cycles—deployed analytical sensors at key locations to optimize water quality and pressure monitoring throughout the network.
Timely, low-maintenance and cloud-connected insights from online monitoring solutions allowed the City of Galveston to manage chlorine residual levels, address discoloration and right-size its flushing program to limit water loss due to blind spots and dead ends.
When layered on top of a smart metering solution, these technologies make it possible for utilities to monitor water quality and respond to pressure demands within their water distribution systems.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Understand operational insights that can be gained from distribution monitoring
- Learn about new technology that enables water quality monitoring without reagents and waste streams
- Find out how to build upon your meter program, incorporating quality and pressure monitoring tools for a smart water system that delivers greater insight
