CityGuard Virtual Command Center
Available from Hach Homeland Security Technologies
Hach Homeland Security Technologies proudly introduces CityGuard™, Winner of the New Product of the Year award for 2010 from Evironmental Protection. CityGuard is a network portal and real-time water distribution and source water monitoring software that optimizes the use of utility dollars while maximizing water quality protection.
By adding CityGuard, water utilities will have a bi-directional monitoring and control system that integrates the data flow from water quality monitoring points strategically located throughout a community’s distribution and source water systems. Utility personnel can simultaneously view monitoring data and minimize response time to critical real-time water quality data from their desk or laptop computer.
“The capabilities of CityGuard essentially provide utilities with a ‘virtual command center’ for critical water distribution monitoring and control,” says Katy Craig, director of Hach HST. “This allows for an effective response to minimize the adverse impacts that could result from an event, whether it’s security-related contamination, natural water quality changes in the system such as quality degradation due to water age, or a ruptured water main, cross connection, or an accidental overfeed.”
