IoT provides the bigger picture to understanding Water Networks

Water networks

By 2050, the UN predicts that over half of the world’s population will dwell in areas where water is scarce. With nearly 126 million cubic meters of water lost each year as a result of leakage, costing around $39 billion (£29 billion). Consumers and environmental groups are asking utilities to step-up. They want to see effective water management that results in reducing the impact and stress on the environment as well as consumer costs.

The Internet-of-Things (IoT) can be harnessed to create smart water systems enabling utilities to monitor nd manage their networks, identifying opportunities for improvements and taking preventative action. The expansive nature of water networks raises many challenges, and this has made is historically difficult to collect data.

Advances in IoT analytics components like sensors, communications, and cloud computing technology have had a tremendous impact on the cost-effectiveness of collecting, storing, and analysing data. By using them, we can gain access to data at a more detailed level than was previously affordable and go beyond the basics of monitoring.

IoT technology can be employed within water networks to optimise decision-making on water management. Automation makes it possible to respond swiftly to demand variations as they arise, allowing treatment plants, pumps, and valves to be operated accordingly.

It is essential to make sure that the system and platform provide customers with vital insights which can be used to help them revolutionise their business. Choosing a suitable technology partner can help you access your data, enabling you to make informed strategic decisions.
