Water Survey of Canada Launches AQUARIUS

Canada’s water monitoring agency takes a modern approach to data management with AQUARIUS.

Thunder Bay, Canada, September 16, 2011 – Aquatic Informatics Inc., a global leader in providing innovative software solutions for water data management and analysis, announced the successful implementation and launch of the AQUARIUS system today at the Water Survey of Canada’s Thunder Bay office in Ontario, Canada.  After a thorough testing period, Thunder Bay is the first of the organization’s 28 offices to switch its complete real-time operations to the AQUARIUS system.

The deployment of AQUARIUS will increase the agency’s efficiency in acquiring, processing, and publishing hydrometric data from its entire national monitoring network. The innovative AQUARIUS system will also provide business productivity tools for Water Survey’s hydrologists and field technicians allowing them to work with larger volumes of data with greater ease.

Aquatic Informatics’ Australian partner, Greenspan, developed the environmental telemetry solution EnviroSCADA. The large-scale deployment of the AQUARIUS system is integrated with their automated data acquisition system for over 2400 of Water Survey’s continuous water monitoring stations across Canada.

Mark Wolf, Principal Consultant of Greenspan, added that “our EnviroSCADA framework leverages the unmatched power, flexibility, and robustness of ClearSCADA, one of the most widely used Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems in the world.”  The data that is collected by EnviroSCADA is then made available through AQUARIUS to over 200 Water Survey technicians and scientists in real-time across Canada.

The Regina Water Survey office will be the next in line to roll out AQUARIUS where its real-time data analysis solutions will be put to through the rigors during the next flood season. From there AQUARIUS will be rolled out to the remaining offices throughout the remainder of 2011.
