iNet – Water balances in DMAs
An expert module that provides an online real-time indication of the water loss per district metered area (DMA), calculating and comparing DMA results to “normal demand behavior” (based on measured consumption profile history), and enabling access to reports and unlimited historical data, all in accordance with different levels of sensors & data available for collection (SCADA, AMR, CRM, remote flow meters and more).

Solutions for detecting and monitoring suspected malicious interventions through anomaly detection and infrastructure
Based at the basin of the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan Valley Water Association is the largest rural water utility in Israel, providing over 70 million cubic meters of water a year and assuming responsibility for balancing multiple potable and reclaimed water resources (the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, the Yarmouk River, reclaimed two WWTPs and others).
Selected in 2013 and implemented in 2014, the iGreen system collects data from multiple sources, such as water and electricity AMR/AMI systems, SCADA, lab files, weather information, and others, and sends monthly invoices to local farmers based on complicated rules (for example, variable rate calculations according to the time of day), interfaces with ERPs, and presents results on dashboards and score-cards.
“The transition from ‘sporadic’ tools such as MS Excel and MS Access, and un-synchronized systems for managing the operational, logistical, and financial aspects of the utility to the implementation of the iGreen system enables us to ‘walk on solid ground’ instead of basing invoices, regulatory balance reports, and operational decisions on inaccurate data, estimations, and undocumented history.”
