Pastoralists rely on satellites to search for water

With the advancement of climate change, many countries suffer frequent and longer drought conditions.  Yet, technology and relevant tools are able to make a difference. For example, in the article linked below, from UN Environment , nomadic herders in Sahel rely on satellite imaging, together with, necessary partnerships, to make positive changes in the search for water.

Smart Water Management

Water is a necessary resource and can often be described as life itself, since without water persons will not be able to survive. Yet, while such a resource is needed and is mainly provided by water management utilities, such organizations can employ technology and smart techniques to ensure smooth operations, which overall can lead to lower operational costs.

In a recent article published by Daniel P. Duffy, on 11 September, 2018, he highlights the basis of smart water management, such as Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) technologies and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) systems, and highlights what this entails and some relevant suppliers of the technology.

Listening for Leaks

We all know how awful non-revenue water loss is, with customers and the utility experiencing little benefits from water lost through leaks, since it is a precious commodity needed by customers, as well as, the service which the utility is charged to provide.

In the article highlighted below, published by Lori Lovely on February 21, 2018, under the topic of  water in Forester Daily News, as well as, in the Water Efficiency magazine, by Forester Media, one gets detailed information on acoustic leak detection.

Acoustic Leak Detection-
The latest developments to assist in listening for leaks

Leaks are money, states Eric Stacey, product manager for advanced leak detection solutions at Echologics. Money not just down the drain, but right out the drain! Lost water involves costs for treatment and conveyance that never result in revenue, and further expense is incurred in leak detection and pipeline repair.
