Digital Water Technology Meets Best Practices at Municipal Utilities

Chemical Management

Balance your chemicals accurately and exactly when needed to ensure water quality and protect pre-existing infrastructure.

Water Conservation

Communities everywhere are growing more water conscious. We help them better track water usage to help predict future needs.

Lab-accurate, Real-Time Results

Our results are delivered in real-time and are lab-accurate, giving you the peace of mind of knowing the readings you get are timely and precise.

Predictive/Prescriptive Insights

Have a better understanding of your existing infrastructure to predict equipment wear and tear better, saving on downtime and replacement costs.

Threshold Alerts

Set your parameters so that if any environmental changes happen, you can address the issue and maintain water consistency for your constituents on the fly.

Monitoring of 30+ Parameters

KETOS monitors for environmental factors (pH, conductivity, pressure, etc.), heavy metals (lead, arsenic, copper, etc.), and inorganics.

Why Automation is Essential for Ensuring Water Quality for Municipal Utilities

Across the country, municipal utilities are looking for ways to update existing/aging infrastructure in the most cost-effective and efficient way possible. They’re also sensitive to water quality regulations, working hard to avoid violations and fines. However, many are dealing with constrained budgets and remain concerned that tackling digital transformation is beyond their capabilities. This is far from reality.

Automation is helping bridge the gap between aging infrastructure and advanced water quality monitoring. In fact, automation can help municipalities avoid contamination events by allowing for more regular testing of water supplies. Utilities are getting a jump on future best practices by implementing solutions that leverage IoT, are seamless enough to plug into existing operations, and can remove the need for manual interventions. 

With KETOS, water operators at municipal utilities get:

  • An automated system that can test as often as needed
  • Lab-accurate readings of 30+ parameters (including many heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, and copper)
  • Customizable threshold alerts for meaningful decision-making in real-time
  • Predictive and prescriptive analysis to help understand community usage

The need for manual testing is a thing of the past, with KETOS helping your municipality direct resources to more critical areas. With a cloud-enabled dashboard, water operators get their readings in real-time to help adjust operations on the fly. And, with a compact, interoperable, modular design, the monitoring hardware can be placed anywhere within the organization, allowing for monitoring water quality and activity without the need to reimagine existing infrastructure.
