Can Smart Water Technologies Quench the Thirst of our Modern Cities?”
Like real estate, managing water is all about location. In drought stricken areas, the focus is on conservation. In areas where water is more abundant, there are challenges in managing storm water and pipe corrosion.
Pipeline corrosion can affect water quality, cause leaks and damage plumbing and equipment. Pipes are the costliest part of the infrastructure to fix, particularly in the northeast, due to our aging infrastructure. Pipes are a sunk cost, and the per unit of water will continue to rise, unless optimization measures are put in place.
