WaterTrax - Wastewater Compliance Data Management Software
Managing wastewater data from a variety of different sources and formats is a challenge that utilities, agencies, and industries face. WaterTrax helps you take control of your wastewater data by:
A consolidated and structured database WaterTrax employs an intuitive data management architecture that is configurable for consolidating all monitoring data collected by your organization. The database builds a history of the information at each sampling point and provides system-wide information that is easy to locate, share and understand.
Electronic laboratory data transfer WaterTrax’s electronic data transfer format allows your internal and contract labs to upload laboratory test data directly into your WaterTrax database. In addition to eliminating paper records and duplicate data entry, the database provides real-time alerting when lab test results exceed alert levels as well as immediate and simultaneous access to all lab test results by managers and other office staff.
Mobile app data entry Using WaterTrax’s mobile app, enter data from your smartphone or tablet in the field. By capturing data directly from the field, errors and duplication can be eliminated. Beyond providing managers and other office staff with immediate access to field data, real-time alerting of poor results offers the ability to respond quickly to any water/wastewater system issues.
SCADA integration WaterTrax can be configured to receive summary SCADA data (e.g., daily minimums, maximums and averages). After a one-time configuration, data are pushed into the WaterTrax database where calculations are performed if/as necessary. Data are then accessible for reporting and analysis in conjunction with the rest of your system data.
Automatic alerting WaterTrax provides an alerting mechanism to screen monitoring results. Data received from field technicians, entered by operators or transmitted from laboratories are automatically checked against your defined alerting criteria as soon as the data is entered into WaterTrax. Alert notifications are emailed to appropriate personnel if results exceed the alerting criteria.
Calculations WaterTrax provides a formula builder tool that allows users to set calculations based on their own defined formulas. A history of all calculated values for each formula are maintained in the database for reporting and graphing and alerting criteria can be set based on the calculated values.
Reports and graphs Users can define what data to include in reports or graphs using a set of criteria or filters (collection date range, sampling locations, analytes, etc.). These settings can be saved as templates for easy reproduction based on your specified frequency. Thousands of historical records can be exported into pdf or Excel spreadsheet or graphical format in a manner of seconds.
Discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) and reporting WaterTrax has an electronic NetDMR reporting tool to help NPDES permit holders automate generation of discharge monitoring reports. Templates are fully configurable to a user’s NPDES permit requirements. Reports are generated at the click of a button in the upload format required by the state or EPA database.
CIWQS reporting Designed specifically by WaterTrax for use in California to replace the state’s PET tool for DMR reporting, WaterTrax’s CIWQS reporting tool allows users to generate their DMR reports. With the click of a button, produce CDF output for CIWQS and NetDMR output for the EPA. As all calculation and data live in WaterTrax, there is no need for any extra data manipulation.
Regulatory reports In working with many regions across North America, WaterTrax has built a series of region-specific regulatory report templates. A WaterTrax representative would be pleased to discuss our inventory of reports and any your organization would like to see included in our inventory.
