Empower Your Teams To Extract Real Value From Smarter Water Systems
For those entrusted with the responsibility of supplying vital water and wastewater services to their communities, it is both the worst and the best of times. It is the worst of times because water challenges are intensifying, stressing infrastructure that is already badly in need of renewal. Around the world, the water system’s vital signs, including leakage, main breaks, and wastewater overflows, reflect a system in urgent need of investment. Yet we cannot simply spend our way out of these challenges, regardless of how they are financed, without intensifying the burden on struggling ratepayers.
The good news is that there is an emerging consensus around a better way. Advances in digital technologies are enabling better system hygiene, more efficient monitoring and diagnostics, more targeted investments, and a transition to a “primary care” model for system management. These solutions are poised to make this the best of times for utility managers who want to make a lasting difference in the lives of the communities they serve.
This new approach is called “Decision Intelligence.”
