FlowWorks Clients Now Have Direct Access to USGS and NOAA Data
Information can help analyze local conditions and their effects of water and sewer networks
FlowWorks now can accept real-time data directly from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) monitoring stations.
For the first time ever, utilities, municipalities and industrial clients can access this valuable data directly through FlowWorks to enhance understanding of their regional environment.
The addition of the USGS and NOAA data means more than 2,500 precipitation stations, 9,000 stream flow stations, 1,300 groundwater level stations and 1,900 surface water quality stations and nearly 50 tide stations are now available to FlowWorks clients in real time.
Clients can use the new data to augment local networks, or simply as a means of cross-checking local monitoring results. For example, enhancing an existing rain gauge network with local USGS rainfall stations will increase spatial and temporal storm information and improve correlation with observations on the ground. FlowWorks stores all data in a single massive database so it can be analyzed quickly, understood and the results communicated to all users.
FlowWorks is a secure, web-based data management platform for gathering, analyzing and understanding water, sewer, rainfall and other monitoring data. It is hardware neutral, accepting data from any flowmeter or manufacturer's data system, as well as SCADA, manual and historic data. FlowWorks contains a powerful graphing engine, robust analysis capabilities including I&I and rainfall IDF, CSO monitoring with sophisticated event alarming and storage for all forms of metadata. The addition of the USGS and NOAA data feeds allows FlowWorks clients the option of combining it with their monitoring data for a dramatically improved understanding of local conditions and how they affect water and sewer networks.
