The use of smart water solutions—hardware, software, and analytics—is on the rise in the US water sector, with $20 billion of capital and operating expenditures anticipated over the next decade. The uptick in sector spending is driven by compounding challenges facing municipalities: maintaining and expanding water infrastructure, water distribution system leaks, rising energy costs, rate affordability for customers, and emerging water contaminants. As water utilities face mounting pressure to “do more with less,” smart water technologies are an important part of the solution set that need to be scaled up.
This month’s One Water Webinar will spotlight innovations that are being deployed at various points in the water systems to solve our most pressing water infrastructure challenges and the enabling condition that support the implementation of these new solutions. This webinar will feature a panel of One Water innovators who will discuss their experiences with smart metering, revenue and billing, leakage detection, customer engagement, network management and more.
