LIVE DATE: 02/26/20

Today, water utilities are being asked to do more with less as they face challenges around ageing infrastructure, budget constraints, water scarcity, and the need to operate and maintain efficiently. However, technology is disrupting the industry with the prevalence of cheaper smart sensors / devices, Internet of Things, wireless connectivity, and software that can integrate and make sense of all these data sources and silos. Water utilities are embarking on this digital transformation journey, but what does this all mean for utilities and how do they take advantage of these technologies and massive amounts of data?

This presentation will focus on leading water and wastewater utilities who have embraced and leveraged these digital technologies by creating a data strategy and using real-time data to:
• drive smarter decisions to reduce opex and capex
• increase asset life
• meet environmental compliance
• reduce risk.

Operational intelligence success stories will be discussed, including:
• White House Utility District has reduced leaks by $900,000 and deferred $20 million in capex,
• San Francisco PUC has used condition based maintenance to save $400,000 / year,
• Vitens in the Netherlands can detect a leak in 2 minutes,
• Veolia Water has reduced their energy by 6%,
• United Utilities uses machine learning to predict their water demand 24 hours ahead and forecast combined sewer overflows 6 hours into the future with 98% and 97% accuracy respectively
