Based on the iGreen platform IOSight developed a set of dashboarding, reporting and event management tools to provide situational awareness related to water quality indicators in watersheds and river basins.
iShed is IOSight’s algorithm-based system for water quality monitoring and water security in rivers and watersheds. iShed was co-developed by IOSight and Mekorot, Israel’s national water company, and provides reliable pollution detection and speed of propagation calculation in watersheds. iShed’s algorithm eliminates 95% of false alarms.
Jointly developed by Mekorot and IOSight, iShed is installed at the Jordan River & Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret) watershed and has been operational since 2017. It has already provided reliable early warning alarms related to contamination that could have affected water quality in the Jordan River and the Sea of Galilee, which are major water resources in Israel.
The system enables continuous monitoring and detection of contamination of water sources, sends alerts in real-time while providing estimations for downstream contamination propagation along the northern river basin (the Jordan River watershed) flowing into the Sea of Galilee.
“iShed provides us with the critical ability to ensure surface water quality through continuous monitoring of the Sea of Galilee watershed and highly accurate and actionable alerts regarding suspected contamination in the watershed”
