HydroManager is a web-based water resources information management system that delivers centralized and secure access to water production and monitoring data over the internet.
An Online Water Resources Development and Environmental Data Management System
HydroManager is a web-based water resources development and data management system that delivers centralized and secure access to water production and monitoring data over the internet. By combining surface and groundwater databases with specialized analytical tools, decision support systems and an easy-to-use online web interface, HydroManager provides water agencies, utilities, government agencies, mining managers, and unconventional oil and gas projects with a reliable system for effectively and efficiently managing water resources.
- Easily organize, analyze, map, understand and report complex environmental and water resources data
- Automate tedious data management tasks to improve operational inefficiency, free up essential resources and reduce costs
- HydroManager is developed on an open database platform which is highly configurable and scalable to meet your business needs with a minimum financial investment.
- Unlike custom or in-house built solutions, HydroManager offers regular technology updates and provides users with access to technical support and training to help ensure it stays relevant and useful for many years to come.
- With HydroManager you can create your own data model or you can connect to your existing databases, which facilitates easy deployment, fosters adoption within your organization, and avoids having to adapt or reformulate existing processes.
- Web navigation does not require installation of technical software with intimidating learning curves, making it as simple as browsing the web.
- HydroManager is a robust commercial solution dedicated to water, environmental and mining industries, with a proven industry track record that has been on the market and continuously improved for nearly ten years.
- HydroManager is wholly developed by a single vendor (Waterloo Hydrogeologic) and incorporates our own extensive knowledge of subsurface, groundwater, and surface water data management, including specific tools to support related business needs.
Flexible and Customizable Database
HydroManager allows you to create your own database or to connect to one or more existing databases. Each HydroManager installation can be customized by our team of experts to meet your unique needs. Waterloo Hydrogeologic will work with you to fully define your business processes and refine access to existing data repositories to create a tailored solution that helps you reduce environmental risk and make more effective business decisions.
Intuitive Web-Based Data Exploration and Reporting
HydroManager displays in real-time the analyses and visualization of borehole logs, queries, and cross-section interpretations produced through Hydro GeoAnalyst desktop software over the internet.
Real-Time Review and Visualization of Water Resources and Subsurface Data
HydroManager works with Hydro GeoAnalyst, which is our all-in-one desktop softwarefor environmental specialists. HydroManager securely displays in real-time the analyses and visualization of borehole logs, data queries, and cross-section interpretations produced through Hydro GeoAnalyst in any modern web browser.
Map-Driven Navigation and Spatial Analysis
Webmaps are ideal for spatial navigation, data reporting, and data display. Use the mapping tool in HydroManager to “drive from the map” and retrieve the data you would like to work with.
Web Data Entry Forms
Add and edit data online through web data entry forms that are easily configured to match your data model structure and terminology, and which include dynamic validation of such things are value and range, controlled list selections, and definition of required fields. Use configurable role definitions to provide data entry only access for third party data providers such as consultants or laboratories to shorten the turn-around time for data delivery.
Data Validation and Approval Workflows
Graph, review, and qualify. Utilize specific workflows to validate and approve incoming data prior to data approval for use before using in reports and visualization modules.
Data Validation Reporting
Help ensure that only the best, most relevant data are recorded. View summary reports of approved versus rejected data, track “flagged” data based on incoming source and date to identify and correct root causes for errors.
Decision Support Module
This module enables understanding, planning, and managing the optimal use of state or site-wide water resources. This decision support module enables design and configuration of water supply and demand projections, and can identify approaching concerns and their causes before they turn into serious problems. Examples of typical decision support designs include:
Water Use Optimization
This decision support configuration enables understanding, planning, and managing the optimal use of state or site-wide water resources. Monitor your water supplies and compare them with demand projections, identify approaching concerns, and their causes before they turn into serious problems. This module displays the water budget in each region of interest, detailing the supply sources and the usage types and offers prediction scenarios that will allow you to create and assess sustainable water management strategies.
Online Well Permit Submission and Permit to Take Water Process Approval
HydroManager supports the online submission and approval of well permitting applications. An online system reduces the amount of manual data entry resulting in a faster permitting process, easier permit searching and an always up-to-date evaluation of current permits.
This decision support configuration helps to ensure regulatory guidelines are upheld as permits are evaluated against a consistent set of standards. This enables a faster turn-around time for applicants, and gives agency employees more time to spend on questionable permits, not on the more “routine” submissions.
Water Quality Assessment
This decision support configuration allows the presentation of water quality in any project region (on maps and charts), and immediately shows the regions where the quality of the water is below guidelines. This module includes prediction functions to show trends for both water levels and quality.
This decision support configuration presents the available volume of water behind each dam, thus allowing you to plan for water use (this module requires daily measurement of the water level in the dam). Dam Monitoring also provides statistics on water volume variations and will provide prediction on the availability of the water behind the dam (theoretical prediction based on statistical analyses).
Document Library Module
This module is a simple yet very useful document management tool for those clients who need to manage a broad range of electronic data, such as annual monitoring reports, scanned field notes, original well completion records, or site photographs, by enabling you to associate these documents with their related assets and essential metadata.
Full text searching and the ability to add metadata tags to library items makes it simple to find and access the documents you are looking for.
