Nov. 29, 2023
The combined company has more than 20,000 smart devices deployed in North America to monitor and control lift stations and their associated assets.

SmartCover Systems, a provider of real-time sewer and stormwater collection system monitoring and optimization technology, announced that it has completed an acquisition of Data Flow Systems.

With this acquisition, SmartCover adds the ability to monitor and control lift stations, which are an important point of vulnerability in collection systems. The combined company has more than 20,000 smart devices deployed, supporting more than 850 customers in North America.

“The acquisition of Data Flow aligns with our vision to deliver continuous visibility throughout the entirety of the collection system, spanning from monitoring to control across gravity and pressure pipes to lift stations,” said Corey Williams, president and CEO of SmartCover. “We are pleased to welcome the company to our team.”

SmartCover and Data Flow will maintain their namesake brands and product lines.

Based in Melbourne, Florida, Data Flow Systems offers an end-to-end approach from design to implementation with ongoing support of software, hardware, and communications for utilities of any size looking to securely monitor and control their lift stations and associated outside the fence assets. Using its proprietary software, Data Flow can also provide the ability to optimize lift station pumping operations in real time based on network conditions, an offering that delivers energy savings while helping extend the life of pumps.

“We embrace the opportunity to become part of the SmartCover family,” said David Walker, president of Data Flow. This strategic move allows us to broaden our reach and enhance our solution offerings, all while maintaining our commitment to deliver reliable solutions for critical systems with a demonstrated return on investment.”
