Smart Water

Smart water is an emerging and growing market in the water and wastewater industry. It relates to the application of data analytics to water and wastewater use through localized sensors. First gathered by automated meter reading (AMR) or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), the data can then be processed with artificial intelligence or machine learning for deeper inferences on water use.
