Communities around the world are facing a growing storm. Complex challenges including water scarcity, changing demographics, extreme weather patterns, and aging or overly stressed infrastructure are colliding to threaten critical water, energy, transport, enterprise and health networks. The water industry is in the eye of the storm.
By 2025, more than 1.8 billion people worldwide will be living in areas of water scarcity, where more than two thirds of the world’s population will face water-stressed conditions.
Against this backdrop, water and wastewater managers are dealing with acute infrastructure challenges, including pipe leaks, main breaks, sewage overflows, storm water overflows, energy-intensive operations, and inefficient decision-making and asset management.
