Stormwater Smartgrids

RainGrid harnesses the power of big data and real-time automation to bring a scalable, sustainable, low-cost alternative to piped stormwater management. The geospatial design aims to alleviate stresses placed on existing stormwater infrastructure by capturing rain where it falls in highly sophisticated Smart Cisterns.

Acting as a dispersed stormwater retention system, the network of Smart Cisterns capture up to 90% of annual roof runoff.

Best Practice Stormwater Management

Networked Smart Cisterns collect and hold rainwater until it can be released safely, reducing surges, pollution, and flooding.

A MODULAR APPROACH TO YOUR SOURCE CONTROL NEEDS

Program Design

RainGrid is a leading designer of municipal stormwater programs for residential retention-based stormwater controls. RainGrid’s team of experts will work with municipalities and developers to assess the properties e.g., disconnected downspouts, contouring of the property to direct water away from foundation, to limit the potential for basement flooding by developing solutions and social marketing programs that best suit your unique needs.

Implementation

RainGrid offers its clients a full suite of social marketing and installation options including outreach social surveying, collateral templates, external canvassing, hosting public meetings, coaching municipal staff, ongoing evaluation and operational monitoring. We have the targeted social marketing programs to confidently launch your Stormwater Smartgrid.

Maintenance

RainGrid provides utility grade field maintenance for Stormwater Smartgrid cisterns, sensors, controllers, power, actuated valves and communications infrastructure, and online customer support for RainGrid Analytics digital service end-users. We deploy highly-trained, local technical RainGrid specialists for Smartgrid maintenance.

Analytics

RainGrid brings big data to rain. We aggregate data within and across Stormwater Smartgrids to supply municipalities, insurers and builders with detailed analytics on urban precipitation footprints, flood diversion and lot-level microclimate. Our RainGrid Analytics team transforms raw data into decision-making the resources you need to improve planning and better understand your customers.
