03 Dec Smart ponds on Walmart property aim to protect the Chesapeake Bay
Maryland is piloting new technology that’s designed to help curb pollution and flooding: Its transportation and environment departments are contributing $4 million to introduce smart ponds in four locations around the state.
The state government is also working with Boston-based tech company Opti and the Arlington, Virginia-based nonprofit Nature Conservancy to introduce the IoT applications, while the testing waters are ponds that sit on land owned by Walmart. Locations are as follows:
- Walmart Supercenter Fruitland, 409 N. Fruitland Blvd.
- Walmart Supercenter Aberdeen, 645 S. Philadelphia Blvd.
- Walmart Supercenter North East, 75 North East Plaza
- Sam’s Club Hagerstown, 1700 Wesel Blvd.
