Global Water Technologies is developing "smart water" solutions to reduce the amount of drinking water lost by utilities through aging infrastructure, leaking pipes and hundreds of daily water main breaks.
This significant problem not only wastes the precious drinking water, but also causes public health and safety issues, disruption of other business activities due to water loss and closed roads and results in poor customer service.
Smart water tools include sensors + software that measure water distribution and identify hidden and growing leaks before water mains fail. Smart meter upgrades allow real-time monitoring of usage patterns and our SaaS platform engages customers with better data and provides incentives for greater water efficiency.
Increasing water scarcity and higher prices means utilities need to reduce water loss, improve customer service and develop sustainable practices — new water technologies to improve drinking water distribution can help that business case.
