Many water systems face significant challenges in the treatment and delivery of water. Aging pipes that leak, rising demand for water, and outdated monitoring systems all contribute to the struggles utility managers face – particularly in times of drought. In the United States alone, it is estimated that 7 billion gallons of clean drinking water are lost each day due to infrastructure leaks.
New technologies, including smart meters and advanced communications networks, enable water utilities to overcome some of these challenges, helping to create a smarter water grid. The new equipment generates valuable data that leads to improved efficiencies and enables customers to better manage their use of water – increasingly important goals in an era of water scarcity.
Featuring senior research analyst Neil Strother, along with Doug McCall, marketing director at Sensus, and Hobert “H” Warren, division manager at Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, this webinar explores the key drivers of smart water systems and examines the latest solutions. The webinar also explains how Albuquerque Water created an award-winning system that integrates advanced technology to help manage increased data volumes, improve customer service, and drive overall efficiency.
