Stormwater practitioners are invited to participate in the evaluation of continuous monitoring and adaptive control (CMAC) at scale. The trial is a collaboration between OptiRTC Inc. and the Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology (LIFT) ― a partnership between the Water Environment Research Foundation and Water Environment Federation to bring new water technologies to the field.
CMAC is providing the foundation for a future of intelligent, digitally-connected stormwater infrastructure. The ability to monitor and control stormwater systems continuously can improve static infrastructure and has the potential to advance water quality efforts greatly. These solutions particularly are well-suited for controlling the timing and duration of stormwater detention as well as reducing runoff volume and controlling peak flows.
Applicants are eligible for in-kind funding of up to $400,000 for CMAC retrofits. Stormwater managers with three or more sites available for high-performance retrofits are encouraged to apply.
The deadline for submitting an application is Feb. 19. Up to 15 participants will be selected. Those participants will be provided with a final report and system performance analysis after a 6-month evaluation period. Visit the OptiRTC site for more information.
