How technology is helping to improve water management
Water is considered to be one of the most essential resources on Earth, and yet it is also one of the most undervalued. Therefore, the importance of water as a resource needs to be taken into consideration with attention given towards how it is sourced, treated, and distributed.
By integrating IoT with the water management process, operators can be warned faster of potential process issues, detect leaks more easily and improve distribution.
Watch our Spark Spotlight webinar where Nish Dogra, Smart Network Lead of Watercare Services Limited, shares learnings of how IoT smart solutions are improving water management to boost efficient use of this precious resource.
Nish is joined by Gerhard Loots, CEO of Kallipr, who gives insights into how the IoT devices are configured, installed and deployed at scale across water infrastructure.
This webinar was recorded on Wednesday 22 March 2023.
