Colorado Water Treatment Plant Uses Vivotek Technology

When one pictures Colorado, the majestic Rockies and clean, pristine wilderness come to mind. Even so, water needs to be treated for human consumption, and Montezuma Water Company (MWC), located in an unincorporated area near the town of Dolores, Colorado, is a privately-owned water treatment plant that provides clean, safe drinking water to local residents in the unincorporated areas of Montezuma County.

With a history dating back to the 1960s, the water originates from the Dolores River and McPhee Reservoir where MWC obtains its water. The processing at the plant involves several tanks in which filtration and treatment takes place, at which point the water is piped to customers, over 4 million gallons per day.

With increased Homeland Security requirements and a basic need to protect their equipment as well as the community's water supply, MWC worked with Amerispot and CEO Alan Klein to install a brand-new, state-of-the-art surveillance system to protect the local community vital water supply. Given that the critical areas to be placed under surveillance were the actual water processing tanks. Alan's team opted to use several Vivotek IP7160 and IP7161 2-megapixel network cameras bundled with an Avermedia recording platform. The cameras were a perfect fit for the application as their wide coverage area enabled plant staff to monitor activity around the tanks day and night without missing the slightest detail.

"The plant personnel are very pleased with the quality and coverage provided by the Vivotek cameras," Klein said. "The high quality and flexible installation options make the cameras an excellent choice in applications including industrial, municipal and retail."
