Fort Worth Water expands use of PureTech Systems’ Video Surveillance Solution

PureActiv® to provide video analytics and geospatial VMS to Westside facility.

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- PureTech Systems Inc., a leading manufacturer of geospatial video surveillance software, today announced the installation of its PureActiv® geospatial video surveillance system at the City of Fort Worth’s Westside Water Treatment facility. The installation marks the third of the city’s water facilities to utilize the PureActiv system.

The brand new facility boasts the “latest, greatest technology in drinking water treatment”, according to water department spokeswoman Mary Gugliuzza1. The $63 million dollar facility will utilize PureActiv video management system and its geospatial video analytics for perimeter protection, sensors monitoring, alarm management and forensic video tasks. Construction of the facility system was funded by the Texas Water Development Board, and the security system installation was performed by Schneider Electric.

“PureTech continues to demonstrate the ability to meet our detection requirements and they innovate quickly to meet our new security challenges,” stated Juan Reyes, Safety and Security Manager for the City of Fort Worth Water Department. The Westside installation includes PureActiv’s geospatial (map-based) user interface, which provides security personnel an intuitive display of the security information and a simple to use interface, allowing quick and efficient operation. Additionally, PureTech’s geospatial video analytic capabilities provide both intruder detection and subsequent camera auto tracking. The installation includes several types of perimeter sensors and deterrents, including PureTech Systems integration with a Long Range Acoustic Hailing Device (LRAD®).

PureTech’s President, Larry Bowe, said “We are dedicated to Fort Worth’s effort to increase public safety and secure its facilities. We will continue to work with the city to provide solutions to meet their perimeter surveillance needs.” The Westside facility is the first in Fort Worth to use liquid forms of chlorine and ammonia for disinfection, which is a safer process. Westside can produce as much as 15 million gallons of water per day.
