The Paradox of Intelligent Water Systems
Wednesday, September 20, 2017: 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM
A water utility connecting the oldest of the old infrastructure to the newest of the new technology faces significant challenges, yet generates extreme benefits. Water and wastewater systems provide the backbone of civilization sustaining life itself in the largest, to the smallest of communities. Water utilities may be cautious to take up new technology because the budgets are tight and the cost of failure is high. Implementing an intelligent water system digitally transforms your understanding of managing a very physical system.
This presentation will provide executives a high-level roadmap to getting started with some of the industry’s latest technology. The good news is that it can be implemented in phases without breaking the budget. Individual successes will generate community trust, increasing their line of sight in all that you do from the source water to their faucet and down the sink.
