Opti’s stormwater management system was brought to UChicago as an alternative to the standard, passive storage tank. Using a water level sensor and valve connected to Opti’s cloud–based control, UChicago intelligently manages releases from the storage tank. They also set a goal that to some might seem beyond reach: the ability to harvest rainwater from this tank, a function unheard of in other regional stormwater management systems. Experts with the University aimed to pioneer a new system of sustainable water re–use on campus. UChicago tackled the challenge to achieve the benefits, without the additional investment of a separate rainwater harvesting system.
