My company has a potential solution for real-time water infiltration monitoring. However, I am concerned about the condition of the critical areas where you want to mitigate water infiltration. Could you provide me some more examples of the critical areas of interest? I would like to know some more detailed information like if the location is near to subway lines or if the monitoring location is close to water flow. Dos the infiltration usually caused by groundwater or fluid filled pipe passing by?
The water infiltration is seen in three major areas. One – our tunnels and surrounding infrastructure is porous and water penetration can occur through cracks and crevices. Water can infiltrate open areas such as head houses (entrance ways) that do not have doors associated with them and are not graded properly. Finally, we have several areas of water infiltration that see significant water penetration due to tidal and storm surge activities. These can penetrate our system through various methods – cable conduits, manholes, cracks and crevices in foundations, and other openings to name a few. There are areas of water penetration that are directly on the track infrastructure and those that are not near track infrastructure occurring more in a industrial equipment room or facility environment.
I have a question about a challenge.
