Where’s your water going? And how do you find out?

As much as 26% of city and agricultural water is lost to leaking infrastructure. Replacing everything is not a viable option, but using IoT devices to scale monitoring systems and gathering insights from the field can identify where to focus investment and maintenance.

Hear how IoT innovators Jesse Teat and Hugh Blake-Manson are using IoT solutions at scale to take the guesswork out of water management.

In this webinar, Jesse outlines how Tussock Innovation’s Waterwatch IoT systems are deployed at scale to improve management and monitoring across all sectors of the water industry - reducing stress on budgets, networks, and people.

Hugh also explains why it’s important to have a clear focus on water management goals as well as "fit for purpose" IoT technology, and the insights required to achieve this.
