    Next Generation Mag Meter: A Tool For Leak Detection

    Water — our most precious resource — is depleted globally by multiple activities. Common uses include drinking water, fire protection, agricultural/irrigation, manufacturing, food processing, etc. As our global population continues to increase, so does the need for fresh water supply. As a dynamic resource with many universal commitments, it is not surprising, with so many different global variables, that water scarcity is becoming a concern for both developed and developing countries. By Michelle Pawlowicz, marketing specialist, McCrometer
