The Mantua monitoring and control system consists of four monitoring sites and a base station. Monitoring occurs at two water tanks, a vault, and a pump house. The system uses CR510 and CR10X dataloggers for measurement and control. Measured parameters include pressure and water level. A weather station at one site also measures rainfall, wind speed and direction, and temperature.
The system calls designated people using a voice modem to report any communication failures, sensor failures, intrusion incidents, and other problems. Narrow-band Freewave radios are used for communication between monitoring sites and the base station. All monitoring sites can be viewed and controlled from the base station.
