After a harmful green algae bloom in a water reservoir, the City of Salem, Oregon turned to AVEVA’s cloud-based data management solution as a service, AVEVA™ Data Hub, to predict future algae blooms and ensure the city’s drinking water is safe for residents. Data Hub allows the city of Salem to aggregate various sources of data—like algae levels, for instance, and water depth, weather data, water turbidity, satellite imagery, and lab samples—into one central, cloud-based hub of information. The City of Salem then uses this aggregated information to enable data science that forecasts harmful algae blooms and cyanotoxin activity, so the city can take preventive action.
“There were a lot of players involved, and Data Hub really made it easier to share that data.”
