How to monitor water smartly

1: Area of sustainability category: water infrastructure

Maintaining balanced water levels is critical to avoid flooding in residential areas and conserve enough water for the dry season. And the technician has to drive back and forth between 11 lakes and make sure the levels don’t get too high.”

2: “Florida city employs Sensus tech for remote water monitoring

  • Enables proactive and preventative maintenance

Comment on “Plastic Bottle Concrete

Manufacturing concrete generates 4.5 percent of the world’s human-induced carbon emissions. So far, substituting 1.5 percent of concrete with irradiated plastic has been proved to improve the mixture’s strength significantly. It means 0.0675 percent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions is deducted. If this technology is implemented on a global scale, the impact could be significant.

  1. To LY2427:

    I’m assuming that this technology would be used to augment the Florida canal system that is already in place. Florida’s water management authority had engineered a series of canals to control excessive water flow but mostly to divert water to necessary regions such as the South Florida region to maintain positive pressure on the Biscayne Aquifer in order to prevent salt water intrusion. Of course the system is aging so any new technological innovations such as this could help with the necessary water flow controls.
