The water industry faces significant challenges to maintain secure and reliable service provision in the context of climate change, ageing infrastructure, urban growth, irrigation demand and with investment capacity constrained by user affordability. Traditional urban water, sewer and drainage networks are essentially separate ‘dumb networks’, to operate in a pre-set mode, requiring manual intervention to change the mode of operation. Networks are also typically lazy civil assets designed for the extreme worst case events and 99.9% of the time the capacity is under utilised.
At the same time the community is confronted by these challenges, the world is experiencing an explosion in technological innovation that presents an opportunity to transform ‘dumb’ separate networks into ‘Intelligent Networks’ to cater for the more complex integrated networks required for Cities of the Future.
This webinar highlights some of the exciting innovations that are emerging as solutions to these challenges.
