CyberLock products meet EPA guidelines

Access control system allows water utilities to control and monitor facilities and water sources


Corvallis, Oregon, May 14, 2013—The CyberLock family of access control products allows users to track and control access throughout a facility. The audit trail provided by the lock and key helps water utilities meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) security guidelines aimed at protecting watersheds and sources of drinking water.

The CyberLock system includes electronic locks and programmable keys that enable water utilities to control and monitor access to entry gates, chemical feed areas, watersheds, water wells, and other water sources. The electronic locks and keys record openings and unauthorized attempts to gain entry. The detailed audit reports of lock and key activity demonstrate a water utility's due diligence in securing their physical assets. The system’s email alerts keep management updated so informed decisions can be made when security issues arise.

James Price, Technical Support Professional for the Collier County Water Department, oversees security processes and special projects, implemented CyberLock in order to meet EPA regulations. Price states, “With CyberLock, we can provide substantial proof to the Health Department and EPA that we are diligent in our efforts to secure our facilities and keep the public water supply safe.”

CyberLock, Inc., will be showcasing the CyberLock system of electronic cylinders, smart padlocks, and programmable keys at the AWWA show in Denver, Colorado June 9-12, booth 17013.
