AQUIMETRICS™ is a revolutionary application that leverages “Internet of Things” (IoT) technology and processes data from monitoring equipment placed within the aquifer or watershed. Data are received through a dashboard as user-friendly, real-time tables, graphs, and maps making AQUIMETRICS™ the next generation of technology for aquifer and watershed management.

Why AQUIMETRICS™?


Municipal or industrial water wells are often installed under the premise of pumping as much water as possible in a given location. Experienced well drillers are proficient in maximizing the yield from an aquifer. Engineers then use this information to determine pump and pipe sizes, storage capacities, etc. This approach often results in significant draw down of the aquifer and can cause well interference, well fouling, and unnecessary energy consumption. Many well field operators track the water levels in their wells, however, very few operators are using that data to determine pumping rates, rehabilitation schedules, and energy consumption. Well field performance can be optimized when wells are designed, installed, developed, operated, and maintained properly to ensure that the aquifer is being managed in a sustainable and efficient manner.

Do your water wells “talk” to you and each other?


AQUIMETRICS™ was built to streamline and optimize well field management by completely automating well field monitoring. The AQUIMETRICS™ platform includes integrated hardware and software that is offered as a turn-key service by our professional hydrogeologists and engineers. The platform leverages the current explosion of IoT technologies to collect, store, and analyze real-time and continuous groundwater data. Sensors installed in the well are used to collect information on water level, temperature, salinity, pH, conductivity, and other groundwater quality parameters. The flow rate is monitored using a digital meter. The data are transmitted through telemetry (e.g. cellular network) to a database stored in the cloud. Our software uses the data in various ways to evaluate trends and changes in the measured parameters and what these changes mean for operational optimization and regulatory compliance. The end result is a “Smart” Well Field™. The wells can “talk” to each other to evaluate what pumping rates are the most efficient for the current water demand. By using your existing SCADA systems or stand-alone variable frequency drives (VFDs), the AQUIMETRICS™ platform can continually be determining and selecting pumping rates at individual wells to optimize well field performance.
