Imagine a network that delivers near-real-time data and can be used to monitor and prioritize problems and challenges – creating a more sustainable future for your community. For water utilities, addressing problems as they arise is becoming a thing of the past. 

In a recent article published in the AWWA Journal, I cover how this sustainable future is becoming a reality. Specifically, how utilities can move from reactive to proactive management by prioritizing integration, data collection, monitoring, analytics and controls in their infrastructure.

As utilities gain better clarity on their systems, reactive repairs change into proactive maintenance, reducing costs dramatically.

In the article, you will learn:

  • Tools and approaches to address some of the challenges facing the water industry
  • How utility intelligence supports long‐term financial and sustainability goals
  • Case studies from two utilities that use smart utility networks to address their challenges and set their communities on paths to a more water‐secure future

By combining intelligent measurement tools with the right communication network and advanced analytics capabilities, utilities can have a proactive approach to utility management and better customer service.

No matter where your utility is on the journey of creating a smart utility network to achieve true utility intelligence, they can always plan and take the next step today.

The full article, Utility Intelligence Builds a More Sustainable Water Cycle, can be found in the December 2020 issue of the AWWA Journal on pages 68-75.
