Clareview Reservoir, a vast expanse equivalent to two football fields, serves as a critical water source for northeast Edmonton. Undertaking repairs throughout this extensive reservoir, with work occurring at various stages, posed substantial challenges. One of the primary hurdles was the need to strictly adhere to NSF 61 standards, which require the absence of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) before water reintroduction. The curing process for repair products also demanded precise maintenance of a 15-degree Celsius (59 degree Fahrenheit) temperature and specific humidity levels. Manual checks for these conditions were not only labour-intensive and costly, but also susceptible to human error, potentially leading to project delays.
To address these challenges, strategically placed sensors continuously monitored temperature and humidity levels across the entire Clareview Reservoir. These sensors provided real-time data, eliminating the need for manual checks and ensuring swift responses to deviations. In cases of heater malfunctions or fluctuations in temperature and humidity, instant notifications were dispatched to personnel on their mobile devices, facilitating rapid issue resolution.
The introduction of sensor technology in the construction project had several benefits. The builder saved more than $50,000 by eliminating manual temperature checks and ensuring prompt heating issue resolution, with a remarkable 442% return on investment. The sensors also provided solid evidence of compliance with NSF 61 standards, improving quality assurance and confidence for water reintroduction. Safety was enhanced as well, as they eliminated the need for risky confined space entry during manual checks, ensuring compliance with safety regulations.
Additionally, the sensors improved operational efficiency, simplified billing, and safeguarded the builder from potential warranty claims, enhancing the company's reputation as a trusted, innovative, and technology-driven construction firm.
