Severe droughts are becoming more frequent in various US states and regions, including the City of Georgetown (CoG) in Texas, which provides water services to around 80,000 citizens.
During the dry season (April-September), the city imposes restrictions on garden watering. Historically, detection of unauthorised usage and follow-up on these restrictions were often manual and labour-intensive.
By utilising the custom algorithms we developed, the city was able to transition to automatic detection of unauthorised usage. This enabled them to engage customers proactively and in a more timely manner.
