This paper introduces StreamJess, a Stream Reasoning system that layers on top of a state of the art query processing system such as C-SPARQL to enable closed-world, non-monotonic and time-aware reasoning with Jess rules. The system is validated in the water quality monitoring domain by demonstrating water bodies’ classification and pollution sources investigation.
