Nobel Systems recently installed another IoT-based water pressure monitoring system for the Rowland Water District (RWD) in Los Angeles County. In addition, Nobel Systems has also implemented a GIS-based IoT Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring System for the Rainbow Municipal Water District (RMWD) in Southern California.

Real-Time Water Pressure Monitoring
The IoT device installed for RWD’s system monitors pressure in remote locations, with no electricity or WiFi networks required. It is powered by a solar panel-charged battery and data are transmitted through a regular Verizon or AT&T LTE Cat M1 network.
The water pressure is transmitted every five seconds to Nobel’s GeoViewer Online and Mobile applications. When the pressure drops or if there is a leak, an alert is instantly sent to the water district’s staff as a text.
Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring
TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) devices at the Rainbow Municipal Water District are connected to Nobel’s IoT device and transmit data remotely to GeoViewer. The smart-map device quantifies the number of dissolved solids based on its PPM (Parts Per Million) levels.
The system has been configured and tested to monitor mineral changes in the water, which can range from 10 ppm to 2500 ppm.
The IoT system uses the latest technology and alternative power sources and was designed to provide agencies with a cost-effective and proactive approach to water quality monitoring in real-time.
The IoT system can be configured to the required PPM threshold values within the GIS system and designed to push alerts to staff in both the office and field environment when a change accrues in PPM level. Real-time monitoring of PPM levels are every 5 seconds.
The Rowland Water District services a 17.2 square mile area in southeastern Los Angeles County. The District provides potable and recycled water for approximately 58,000 people via 13,500 service connections in parts of Rowland Heights, Hacienda Heights, La Puente and the cities of Industry and West Covina.
The Rainbow MWD provides water/sanitation services to the unincorporated the Southern California communities of Rainbow, Bonsall, Pala and portions of Vista, Oceanside, and Fallbrook.
Nobel Systems’ has been delivering geospatial and innovative cloud solutions to municipalities and public utility districts for 20 years, by leveraging the latest smart-map and synchronization technology available.
