TOMUS’ experience in the development of specific hardware and software for environmental management, together with the partnership with an important European manufacturer of environmental sensors, were keys to the successful implementation of the well monitoring system in Pernambuco.
Faced with the growing demand for water use and the growing scarcity of easily accessible water resources, the administration of the State of Pernambuco hired TOMUS to implement a sensing network and software to assist in the management, optimization, monitoring and control of the groundwater resource.
The mission was to implement a groundwater well monitoring network through a telemetry system, in 356 wells in the Metropolitan Region of Recife (MRR), over a period of one year. TOMUS then developed a remote communication module and a computerized system, enabling quantitative (extracted volume, flow) and qualitative (water quality) monitoring.
