Water Distribution Reimagined
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, virtually every industry has been working to deal with the ongoing crisis while preparing for the true long-term impact. While this is certainly the case in the water utility sector, there is a “glass is half-full” perspective.
If you work in the water industry, you will likely know that technology has been a major theme in recent years, particularly on the water distribution side. There are magazine articles, webinars and presentations at conferences all focused around digital technology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc. Network communication and real time data about a water utility’s distribution system are no doubt transforming the field. Technologies are also becoming more affordable, and therefore more adoptable, for cash-strapped and notoriously risk-averse water utilities.
There has been a lot of talk this year about how technology will play a role in moving on from the coronavirus pandemic, while also helping to prepare the industry for the next crisis. In this exclusive, complimentary eBook from Water Finance & Management and Mueller, we examine some of the major advancements in water tech – from leak detection to pressure and quality monitoring – and how they are being adopted and applied by utilities right now, and how they can help the industry to continue to reimagine water distribution.
