Earth Day 2013: Sensus, water utilities conserve water through smart water networks
On Earth Day 2013, Sensus partnered with water utilities worldwide to conserve water through leak detection and smart water networks.
RALEIGH, NC, April 23, 2013 -- On Earth Day yesterday, Sensus, a utility infrastructure company, committed to continue partnering with water utilities worldwide to conserve water through leak detection and smart water networks. Recent research commissioned by Sensus found that utilities lose an estimated $9.6 billion each year due to leaked water.
A smart water network is an integrated set of products, solutions and systems that enables utilities to remotely and continuously monitor and diagnose problems, prioritize and manage maintenance issues and use data to optimize all aspects of water distribution network performance.
As Earth Day was observed, Sensus, with 3,300 employees dedicated to the conservation and wise use of resources, urged the water industry to implement smart water networks on a global scale.
"Water scarcity is not a legacy we want to leave for future generations," said Sensus President and CEO Peter Mainz. "If we continue to leverage technology, in the form of smart water networks, we will preserve this vital resource for future generations."
