In 2013, a team of passionate civil / water resource engineers and technology professionals at Century Engineering, A Kleinfelder Company, saw the potential to leverage today’s connected technologies to enhance the performance of stormwater management infrastructure and contribute to environmental site design (ESD) goals. Led by Robert (Bob) Bathurst, PE, D.WRE, LEED AP®, the team developed, tested and began deploying the SmartSWM stormwater solution. As the world was just starting to consider the potential for the IOT or “the Internet of Things,” Bob and his team were already installing SmartSWM.
Today, the SmartSWM team speaks regularly at regional and national trade events and more and more SmartSWM facilities are coming online. The timing is right to construct intelligent infrastructure that is climate resilient while also meeting environmental permit obligations. SmartSWM is a stormwater solution market disruptor. The smart stormwater revolution is gaining momentum, industry recognition and regulatory confidence.
