What is a Local Network?
A Water Information System collecting and assembling data from an area – like a county, village or district – with built infrastructure like electricity, internet, and where surface and groundwater sources are accessible via flumes and wells.
If your goal is to understand the water cycle in a community, we can help you to create a community network, mixing agency, farm and private domestic wells (through a voluntary program), to lower costs and tap into existing infrastructure. And you can choose to lease or buy. These are the common steps to get started:
- Review and compare existing monitoring costs and risks
- Propose initial subscription
- Support recruitment plan
- Expand network annually
What we provide
For agency owners building local networks in their communities, our services include planning, support for site selection, training to support installers, calibration and alerting, and we can quote either in a client-owned, or a lease model. We can also optionally engage client consultants to share data via API and to collect and archive past history.
