HOW IT WORKS
A SmartSWM pond is a traditional stormwater pond that has been outfitted with water level sensors, an electronically controlled discharge valve, a software program and an Internet connection. Programmed with each pond’s specifications, SmartSWM can anticipate rainfall and manage the water level to maximize the facilities’ performance.

Holding water in the pond longer allows more pollution to settle out. Draining water slowly reduces downstream erosion. And releasing water in advance of rainfall allows greater storage capacity, reducing overflows and flooding risk.
SmartSWM provides a swift return on investment in terms of environmental benefits as well as direct costs:  

Improve overall water quality
Reduce downstream erosion
Reduce overflow and flooding
Greater aquifer recharge
Maximize water reuse

Reduce maintenance costs
Business can earn stormwater fee tax credits

REMOTE, REPORTING & CONTROL
A secure, web-based dashboard provides complete access to each facility. Access to real-time and historical performance data makes it easy to satisfy regulatory reporting and provides a great educational tool for school and university installations. Remote control allows manual overrides for planned maintenance, or facility inspections.  
CONSTANT EVOLUTION & CONTROL
Through constant connectivity, programming and reporting is continually refined and pushed out from all SmartSWM installations. What’s more, as local environmental conditions and climate patterns change, performance protocols for each facility can be modified to maintain optimum performance without leaving the office.  
MORE BENEFITS

SmartSWM continues to find new benefits that smart monitoring and controls can provide:

 

Active Freeze Control – In winter, water levels can be reduced to minimize the hazard created by thin ice for children and animals

 

Active Mosquito Hazard – In summer, water levels an be cycled to reduce mosquito breeding
