Water is a precious commodity and we have to protect it. We know the importance of this from the various installations of our electric fence system to protect reservoirs.
Water is the key to life on earth, both physically and economically. Media coverage of any water crisis in any country attracts global attention. One of the most sobering water-related statistics is that almost 1 billion people around the world do not have access to clean and safe water. Another alarming fact is that reservoirs (both man-made and natural) have increasingly become targets for vandalism. Here is one such story of what happened at the Peterson Creek Reservoir in Oregon where vandalism resulted in 75 per cent of the water being lost.
Understandably, water supply and reservoir management companies everywhere are concerned. They must do all they can to protect their precious supplies. From agriculture to energy production, tourism to manufacturing, the need for water is huge. Read more about the importance of water to the United States Economy.
Reservoir Protection With Electric Fence Security
The protection of reservoirs and water pumping stations with effective perimeter security has, however, been somewhat overlooked by many suppliers. Happily, the story here at Advanced Perimeter Systems is different.
We have been involved in the perimeter protection of reservoirs and water pumping stations for many years. Our electric security fence technology has been successfully installed at a variety of sites. The photograph above shows Electro-Fence™ in a free-standing fence installation on the perimeter of a reservoir in the UK.
Amongst our water utility clients we are privileged to include Thames Water in London and Scottish Water in Scotland. For more information read our page about gas and water pumping station security or contact us for a more detailed discussion.
