Smart water conservation for utilities in regions with severe drought.
Periods of severe drought are increasing in numerous US states and throughout entire regions.
This illustrates the urgent need for water conservation measures to avoid costly investments in additional infrastructure.
Utilities can implement drought contingency plans to restrict irrigation to specific days and time windows, but customers may ignore them or may not be aware of them. Detection and follow-up on these restrictions are in many cases very manual and labor-intensive tasks, too, making the process even more challenging to utilities with already busy staff.
Water conservation made smart and simple
Highlights of our solution
- Wrong-day irrigation detection: detect violators automatically when you receive new smart meter data, and send the appropriate communications to your customers.
- A customer portal enabling your utility to engage with and inform your customers using actionable insights, an alert manager, and tips and tricks on how to save water.
- A back office portal enabling you to manage any time series data source (smart meters, DMA flow meters, market pricing, weather data), analyze detailed consumption and production (end consumer and grid), and report on compliance with water conservation legislation.
- A design built on our Utility Data Hub technology. The flexibility of the Data Hub enables the simple addition of new use cases to our solution.
“Water scarcity is an existential threat to all of us. We’re proud of the work we’ve done with our partner Itineris to combat wasteful irrigation practices that lead to depleted aquifers and higher water prices for our customers.”
