Australian Regional Authority Chooses MonitorPro to Safeguard the Quality of Wetland and Water Aquifers

City of Marion

About the City of Marion

The City of Marion is a local government area in the southern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia, with an approximate population is 92, 308 ( 2018 – Wiki ). It’s origins date back to 1838 and was then a small rural village under the district council of Brighton. It was renamed to the District Council of Marion in 1886 to distinguish it form the adajenct town of Brighton. In 1944 the district council was upgraded to a municipality and thereafter known as the City of Marion.

City of Marion - Wetland Project

The City of Marion has transformed a large park into a wetland capable of harvesting enough water to fill 160 Olympic size swimming pools.  As part of this, they have introduced a stormwater reuse scheme which will be able to capture, clean, and store 400 million liters of stormwater each year, through the construction of an aquifer system. This water will then be distributed to irrigate council parks in the area.

The Aquifer

To secure the aquifer’s ability to store treated stormwater, it is necessary to continuously monitor the quality of the water through collection and analysis of water samples. Breaches or risks to strict quality requirements must be alerted immediately so that corrective actions can be executed instantaneously to protect the properties of the aquifer.

The City of Marion has selected an innovative monitoring solution to secure the uninterrupted quality of the water entering the aquifer and to make sure of an effective warning system in case there is a risk of contamination or inferior quality.

Automatic Quality Control & Early Warning System

Prior to having MonitorPro installed, one challenge the city faced, was around the collection of external data which was not easily attained without expending significant time. Implementation of MonitorPro has given the City of Marion significant benefits:

  • Automated import of data from outside the city’s own IT system (import from SCADA system).
  • No further need for any manual input from users.
  • Automated import of laboratory data as standard.
  • Instant alerts to make them aware of any exceedance of compliance limits, which meant regulators could be notified within a compliant timeframe.
  • A central location for all data which allows for an easy to use a system of analysing and reporting on the performance.
