Remote Monitoring

The Intelligent Water Project (IWP) automatically measures and reports the health of handpumps and the volume of water extracted.  IWP is configurable to also report groundwater levels. Sensor data is processed and uploaded daily to a secure data base in the cloud by IPW hardware and software.  Cloud-based web applications enable further analysis and data distribution to stakeholders via customizable reports and alerts, including text message alerts of degrading pump conditions or failure.  A key goal is to support field management processes that dramatically increase the reliability of handpumps and decrease the cost of ownership . A secondary goal is the collection of handpump data from all IWP enabled pump sources to provide a rich resource of data that enables WASH practitioners, managers, hydrologist and donors to make informed decisions.
