SmartCover© Systems

SmartCover© Systems offers cost-effective satellite manhole monitoring solutions to eliminate sewer overflows, optimize collection system cleaning, minimize odorous H2S gas, and accurately identify inflow and infiltration (I&I). Our comprehensive dashboard with alarms and notifications allows you to efficiently manage real-time data to enhance performance, reduce costs, and optimize resources. To protect our communities and ensure regulatory compliance, we engineer low burden high value data-driven solutions in the areas of:

  • Sewer spill prevention
  • Collection system cleaning optimization
  • Inflow and infiltration tracking
  • Manhole intrusion detection
  • Lift station backup
  • H2S monitoring
  • Nuclear power plant cable preservation
  • Storm and surface water data fusion

A SmartCover system equips wastewater workers with the right tools to protect the things that matter most. Our technology works in the background, silently keeping cities protected. From our real-time, storm-proof sensors to our web-enabled dashboard, our easy to understand reports and notifications have prevented countless overflows, fatal manhole accidents and wasted man hours. 

All while saving millions in fees, fines and ultimately rate increases.

SmartCover is guided by one goal – to keep the environment and quality of life in our communities protected against the out of sight. And we intend to keep it that way.

Technologies and Products Overview

SmartCover® is are so much more than just our technology. We’re in the business of giving peace of mind to our customers. Our tagline sends a signal to our customers that they can finally relax. They can feel comfort in having the support of a solid technology no matter the circumstance or challenge.

SmartCover® helps its customers protect the things that matter, whether that’s our communities, our operations, our environment, or our employees. It’s the comfort of having the backing of solid technology. The technology is a key part of what makes this possible, but it’s important to always focus on the protection it grants its users.

SmartCover® has Smart Sewer® tools (smart manhole) and features that give operators in-depth insights into their collection system.


Used for measuring and reporting sewer levels, SmartLevel™ provides collection systems with real-time, unmanned monitoring of sewer levels 24/7/365. SmartLevel™ analyzes any subtle nuances in level data, and when the system detects irregularities or anomalies, it sends notifications for situational assessment and data-based decisions in anticipation of events before they happen.

H2Scents® uses a specially designed sensor to enable a SmartCover system to reliably measure real-time H2S levels over extended periods of time. The technology can be used in a range of industrial sites including: refineries, oil & gas production, chemical manufacturing, and food processing.

SubSonic® Dual Sensor

When a Subsonic sensor is used with a SmartCover system, you don't have to worry about losing the signal during a sewer surcharge. The sensor is engineered to function in wet, humid, corrosive conditions and the patented design combines the accuracy of an ultrasonic sensor with the wide range of a pressure sensor. This combination allows measurement of valuable data beyond the point when the sensor becomes submerged.

A typical utility vault structure makes access and manual inspection difficult and labor-intensive. But, without consistent visibility of conditions, water exposure may be happening inside, resulting in infrastructure degradation, failures, reliability issues, and subsequent regulatory action. SmartVault® detects water intrusion from groundwater, rainwater, or leaking conduits, eliminating the necessity for time-consuming visual vault inspection.

You may set alarms to detect the entry of sewer, water, or storm water infrastructure. The reports help you manage response information, provide proof of operations, and labor accounting. The visibility also combats illegal dumping, vandalism, and other security issues.

It takes expensive equipment, logistics, and human resources to stay ahead of pipe blockages. Precautionary overcleaning is a common principle, but high-frequency cleaning is costly and notorious for shortening the lifespan of infrastructure assets. By following our cleaning optimization program, utilities eliminate unnecessary cleaning and optimize routine cleaning schedules while ensuring no spills occur due to blockages.

Software Overview


Flow level optimized estimation (FLOE) is a tool within the SmartCover© solution suite, providing a low cost, low maintenance, highly reliable means for flow measurement and reporting. SmartFLOE™ is more flexible than AV meters, with faster results, lower cost of ownership, and reduced risk.

SmartWeir™ determines start, stop, duration times and the overflow volume of combined sewer overflow (CSO) events. SmartWeir™ does so using real-time measurement of water flow over a weir in various CSO and non-CSO structures. This is an asset management tool, helping users assess and prioritize what, if any, upgrades are necessary.
