Digitalisation in water management

Digitalisation in water management

30 April 9:00 - 13:00


in English

The growing demand for clean drinking water and the associated increase in water shortages are more and more encouraging municipalities, authorities, environmental agencies and water utilities to be the best and most careful owners of their water resources.

Reducing unbilled water loss, in time detection of pipeline leaks and cracks, real-time monitoring of distribution network pressure and condition, intelligent monitoring of surface water - These key topics are of interest for water professionals, and inspire them to introduce smart solutions, new technologies, which haven’t been used in the water industry sofar.
