For many municipalities, the traditional method of sewer flow monitoring is an expensive proposition and can be a hassle. The flow meter network purchase along with flow monitoring tasks, burden the already limited resources of municipal governments. And if flow meters are not installed and maintained properly, the measurements can be inaccurate resulting in missed events or useless data. Three significant technologies are transforming the flow monitoring industry—the internet, expansive cellular networks and wireless, non-contact flow meters. By utilizing these technologies and partnering with Hach, municipalities can view and download accurate, reliable flow data from any internet-enabled device without the need to buy or maintain flow meters.
