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.
AM-TEAM provides simulation services based on a unique combination of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and process knowledge. The realistic 3D process models allow fast virtual troubleshooting, virtual piloting and virtual testing of solutions, offering an alternative to costly and time taking on-site trialing. AM-TEAM is specialized in multiphase CFD simulation combined with water treatment process understanding and in-house process kinetics. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California piloted AM-TEAM to understand and optimize the mixing conditions in two large finished reservoirs to maximize water quality.
VAPAR Solutions was selected by Anglian Water to provide a cloud based solution for automating the review, fault detection and condition assessment of sewer CCTV footage in order to accelerate the repair and maintenance of these underground pipes. The automation of fault detection and condition rating is a fast, accurate and cost effective solution to plan both current and future pipe repair and maintenance.
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.
