Smart Water Management Solutions for Smart Cities
Today, smart water systems are being deployed as part of city infrastructures as they allow the collection, treatment, distribution and recycling of water. The integration of smart water management is a vital element of making a city ‘smarter’. Smart water solutions improve efficiency and provide real-time insights through better measuring, collecting and analysis. Water management and water monitoring has to be emphasized as it is essential for both social and economic development.
The prevalence of smart city water management is on the rise as cities and water utilities are increasingly faced with water challenges such as leakage, theft and changes in the climate. Smart water meters and other IoT sensors can help identify these sources of non-revenue water loss in a matter of days rather than taking months or in some cases years as was previously the case.
