Smart Water: Remote Sensing
Smart Water: Remote Sensing

Automated metering systems (AMSs) or “smart meters” can provide valuable data for electric and water utilities. Data analytics can be used to improve customer service, boost conservation, monitor the system, and even forecast demand. An ultimate goal might be to eventually monitor everything from streetlight intensity to fire hydrants.

  • Article: Need Water Quality Assurance? UV254 Can Help
    Article: Need Water Quality Assurance? UV254 Can Help Superior water quality — it is why we treat our waters. All around the world we are continuously striving to improve the safety of our drinking water to protect public health. However, how are we assuring the success of our efforts? UV254 testing provides valuable assurance about your water quality by detecting organic matter in water. This is something that turbidity can’t do. Just because you have low turbidity does not mean that you will have low organics. By Real Tech Inc.
