Our History in Brief

SmartCover Systems, then known as Hadronex, was founded by two elected water officials in 2005. Dr. Greg Quist, PhD and his partner, David Drake, EE, were both technologists who had a passion for water.  

Focused on and guided by industry need, they developed the SmartCover®, the first sewer system monitor that promised to provide real-time and continuous visibility into the wastewater collection system. 

With continuous robust monitoring at remote sites, relevant data is delivered to the desktop via the cloud. Customers have a new and highly efficient way to stay ahead of their system. Over the course of more than a decade, customers have come to depend on SmartCover for providing a pro-active system to help prevent sewer overflows. This alone provides a meaningful return on investment for customers. Not resting with this innovative solution, the Founders and the SmartCover team continue to infuse technologies from aerospace, defense, space, and remote sensing technologies, leading to new advanced tools and expanded applications with significant value to the industry.   

In 2016, SmartCover teamed with XPV Water Partners to rapidly pursue the Company’s vision of providing data-backed solutions that provide guidance for operations, capital, and asset management.

Today, SmartCover continues to promote the same values that established the Company: keen and relentless focus on the customer through excellence in service and innovation.
