Weather management tools designed for water utilities

Weather, particularly severe weather, can substantially impact your operations. Strong storms and significant rainfall can cause problems by sending excess storm water through your collection systems.

Your pumping station operators, who are responsible for sending all water to your treatment plant, need to be informed when such conditions are expected. This allows them to prepare by opening and closing valves appropriately. In addition, your operations and employees are vulnerable to lightning strikes.

With MxVision WeatherSentry Water Utility Edition, you can anticipate potential issues due to heavy rainfall, lightning, and local severe weather events. Knowing the accurate timing and specific location of an oncoming storm helps your team to avoid operational upsets, work efficiently and safely, protect your water supply, and provide optimum public service. It also helps you to improve your staffing efficiency.

  • MxVision WeatherSentry Water Utility Edition Weather, particularly severe weather, can substantially impact your operations. Strong storms and significant rainfall can cause problems by sending excess storm water through your collection systems. Your pumping station operators, who are responsible for sending all water to your treatment plant, need to be informed when such conditions are expected. This allows them to prepare by opening and closing valves appropriately. In addition, your operations and employees are vulnerable to lightning strikes. With MxVision WeatherSentry Water Utility Edition, you can anticipate potential issues due to heavy rainfall, lightning, and local severe weather events. Knowing the accurate timing and specific location of an oncoming storm helps your team to avoid operational upsets, work efficiently and safely, protect your water supply, and provide optimum public service. It also helps you to improve your staffing efficiency. Forecast the future MxVision WeatherSentry Water Utility Edition supplies accurate, detailed local forecasts based on our proprietary forecasting system, which is managed 24/7 by experienced meteorologists. You can anticipate conditions up to 15 days out, with hourly outlooks for the first three days. Forecasts are updated every hour so that you always have the best, most current look at what will happen. Forecasted wind speed, chance of precipitation, and more can be viewed as graphs.

In addition, our meteorologists post twice-daily forecast briefings tailored to your region of the country. A preemptive strike Lightning is a serious concern. It puts your people and operations at risk. Lightning Manager® delivers real-time strike information for the United States, rather than predictions that can lead to false alarms or delayed data, which often provides notification after the danger has already passed. 02 | MxVision WeatherSentry Water Utility Edition Storm tracking shows you where severe weather is headed over the next 30 minutes and what time it will reach locations in it path.
  • Animate lightning strikes with images taken over the past hour to better show if lightning is intensifying or subsiding. See where strikes are the most concentrated. You can even pair animated lightning strikes with real-time local radar for a better sense of where storms are headed. Lightning Manager also monitors strikes as they approach, based on custom advisory and warning zones — up to nationwide coverage is available as an additional purchase — represented by colored rings. When strikes occur within these zones, audio and visual alerts are triggered. An all-clear notification can also be set up to let you know when the danger has passed, and includes a countdown to show you when that notification will likely occur. Plus, see lightning information on your cell phone or PDA when you’re on the go. Display lightning information on detailed, high- resolution maps or archive the data for your location, including time, latitude, longitude, amplitude, and polarity to an Excel or .csv file. This allows you to document, analyze, and report on lightning activity that impacts your operations for planning, insurance claims, post-storm analysis and reporting, and more.
