COVID-19 is already having an enormous impact on Australian society, with dramatically increased health risk, and in making it most definitely not ‘business as usual’ for organisations and individuals. Some people are becoming ill, others are being required to work from home – visits to offices and production facilities, by suppliers and service providers, are being curtailed.
Amongst all the angst, provision of safe, quality drinking water must continue. Food and beverages must be safe. Exposure risk to staff must be minimised. So how can we maintain the necessary vigilance in this highly stressful environment?
The better visibility we have of what is going on, the greater are our chances of making good management decisions. Now, is when not knowing can really hurt.
How do we know if our WTP is about to be overwhelmed by a high turbidity or E. coli event?
How do we know our disinfection systems are working properly?
How do we know we are properly managing our Critical Control Points?
How do we know what the water quality is like in that remote reservoir? Do we even know what the level is, or if the inspection cover is secure?
How do we know if the sewer is blocked or overflowing?
You might think it’s too late, because to put the facilities in place to give us this information is a massive task requiring engineering design, I.T. infrastructure, big capital expenditure with its months of working through approval processes – and we can’t do that right now.
But, there is another way…
D2K’s pre-integrated, pre-tested remote QualitEye® sensor packages are quick and simple to install (not days). Data is available on your desktop or smart device within minutes. A vast range of parameters can be monitored – from level, pressure and flow to many different water quality parameters. All these QualitEye® devices can link directly to Information Engine™, our advanced water quality Infolytics™ system. The QualitEye®-Information Engine™ bundle, while it can connect to SCADA, takes you way beyond SCADA in its ability to keep you aware of where you need to focus your attention, and to warn you of what might be coming – like a second set of eyes.
We can work with you remotely, to help you identify and specify the solutions you need, and to provide any assistance you need in installation support and ongoing management. For a small investment, and in a short time, you can switch on the lights and have visibility of those parts of your water system that have gone dark because of COVID-19.
