WaterStart facilitates the adoption of water technologies by connecting technology companies with water managers to advance smart water management and economic development. We continuously post new Request for Proposals to partner tech solutions with the needs of our member organizations.
The KETOS Fabric Shield, now referred to as the KETOS Smart Water Intelligence Platform is helping SNWA detect arsenic in wells in a remote location, saving time and dollars. KETOS delivers actionable insights and early warnings with predictive intelligence through real-time and on-demand monitoring of several ionic, environmental, water health parameters, amongst other contaminants at lab precision levels of accuracy on a continuous basis.
InVizion enables companies to quickly combine project data from disconnected enterprise systems – like finance, supply chain, asset and project management applications – for accurate planning, forecasting, reporting & what-if analysis to reduce portfolio costs, minimize investment risks and speed project execution. They provided a quick and cost effectively solution to optimize and increase efficiency and accuracy of the budgeting and planning processes for MWD's Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
Permitting requirements for large water utilities like the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) and the Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) can be an extremely time intensive process requiring a great deal of man-hours. Anything to help make the permitting process more efficient can lead to large cost savings for an organization, which is why SNWA and LVVWD wanted to pilot new technology that would streamline more of their permitting related processes.
The Southern Nevada Water Authority has a system of 300 square miles of water delivery to maintain, which includes 57 pumping stations within the Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD). SNWA identified a need to optimize its water distribution and evaluate the performance and efficiency of its water pumps. Riventa's FREEFLOW technology appeared promising to meet an identified need for optimizing water distribution and identifying efficiency opportunities at SNWA.
APANA is applying its water management system technology at the Bellagio, working with property owner and operator, MGM Resorts International, to examine patterns of water use and identify any hidden water waste in a pilot project involving the site and its prominent fountains.
