Smart Water – What does it mean?

We were interested to see the 2014 State of the Water Industry (SOTWI) report recently released by the AWWA ( As people who work on the cutting edge of rapidly changing technology, trends and issues influence the practices and strategies we use to best serve the industry. SOTWI notes that on a scale of 1 to 7, the overall “health” of the industry went up slightly this past year (to 4.6 from 4.5), but the key issues remain  – infrastructure condition, financing,  public understanding, and regulatory compliance among the top ones. It mentions that the industry faces large scale changes in several areas – and cites technology as one of them. Eramosa knows that technology can help, when it is focused on addressing long-term issues, along with performing its day to day roles. Read more ›

IBM Smart Water – IBM Collaboration Harnesses Power of Big Data to Help Manage Complex Watersheds

Flooding, fresh-water stewardship along Ontario’s Grand River to be studied

Eramosa is pleased to be working with SOWC to utilize the data that is being collected under the Grand River Watershed initiative to develop the e.RIS Web Services component of our information and reporting software, thus providing the ability to link to remote ‘off-site’ data sets that will then allow our partners to visualize and analyze data from their SCADA systems, LIMS, and other internal data sources with external data such as watershed information, weather and hydro data.  We are excited to have been able to complete the connection to the SOWC watershed data set and are working on a pilot to allow local municipalities and cities to access this information and determine the relationship between watershed information and the operation of groundwater and surface water facilities, as well as wastewater treatment plants.

e.RIS Adds Several New Features

During the past months our Partners have challenged us to build some exciting new enhancements to e.RIS.  Through lots of hard work and thorough testing, many of the requests are now available.  One of the largest tools developed is a validation module that allows e.RIS Partners to organize tags and group them into batches to be processed.  The tag data is first run through a series of automated validation rules defined to flag data that violates a business rule.  Some of rules include; rate of change variances, frozen value detection, min/max threshold detection, and regulatory/recommended limits comparison. Once the data completes the automated validation processes, users can review the batches in an easy to use calendar view which displays a summary of the tag’s daily values (daily average, minimum and maximum) and the number and types of flags that were set.  If more review and analysis are needed, a visual tool for reviewing and commenting on the data is available to users.  Every review, approval or comment is retained in an audit log.
