According to the WATER INDUSTRY REPORT 2017 by consultants at Black & Veatch, water industry professionals need to make better use of data technologies. “Water and wastewater systems are increasingly outfitted with data-producing instruments, but that information is too often siloed, or buried and out of sight like much of the infrastructure itself. What if water industry leaders actively embraced not just collecting data from their assets, but uniting the data with information from adjacent yet dependent systems? What if we enabled operators to rapidly process intelligent sensor data at the device level and take immediate action if warranted?” said the report. I could not agree more.
