Forecasting real time water quality advisories that are 90% more accurate than traditional sampling methods.
Each year, Canada pours more that 150 billion liters of untreated sewage water into nature and endanger the health of citizens.
The traditional method of measuring water quality requires a technician to take a sample (from the shore for example) and then take it to the lab for analysis. Then estimating water quality require an incubation time of ± 24 hours. By using these methods, beaches are closed too late – the day after a peak of contamination – putting swimmers at risk.
InteliSwim is a proactive solution based on an AI algorithm, to reliably estimate the concentration of E. coli in the river.
We work in collaboration with city managers to help them adapt a proactive approach to water management. Once it is trained with historical data and adapted to the beaches of your city, InteliSwim can determine, for a given period of time, whether or not the probability of fecal coliform (E. Coli bacteria) in the water will be higher than the acceptable standard for swimming.
Data Sources Used
Our model is based on a city’s historical data to learn the complex relationships between the different variables affecting the quality of the water. The following data types are used:
