At Brooklyn smart garden, when it rains, it drains
It's a pond run by the Cloud.
Brooklyn Botanical Gardens water garden, opened in September, features a pond that doubles as water storage.
At the bottom of the pond is a valve connected to [UNKNOWN] Cloud based control system.
It monitors the weather forecast once a minute, constantly checking for rain The water levels in the pond are allowed to reach 2 to 3 feet before the valve decides the pond needs to release water.
For example, if the forecast predicts 2 inches of rain, Optinem as a system, can automatically release the appropriate amount of water from the garden's pond to make sure it doesn't over flow When there's heavy rainfall and water storage overflows, it can lead to flooding in the sewers like what happened during super storm Sandy.
Five billion gallons of waste water in New York City's waterways.
With opting in this, it's a cloud based solution to a cloud caused issue of excessive rain.
Opt these systems are installed in cities across the country from Washington DC to Oregon.
The water garden is surrounded by riparian or wet feet plants including rhubarbs, perennials and the cardinal flower.
These plants can adapt to adjusting water levels and are used to being close to water.
