Water is perhaps one of the most precious natural resources for all living beings and with rapid urbanization, the resource is becoming scarce quickly. For organizations and systems that operate in the water industry, the dependency on Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are higher as these billion gallons of untreated sewage contaminate oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams.

Building infrastructure will take time and cost huge and hence other solutions are urgently needed. Technological advances offer another way to tackle the problem. Smart Water Monitoring Platforms have ultra-low-power sensor nodes designed for use in rugged environments and deployment in hard-to-access locations. They detect damages in the water supply infrastructure and potential risks to public health or environmental damage in real-time.

We love Kando’s technology because it goes beyond identifying the systems of a problem, in this case, water pollution, and identifies exactly where the source of the problem is – Elemental CEO Dawn Lippert.

“Most importantly, Kando finds these problems in real-time, which allows communities impacted by industrial or agricultural pollution to take action.”

The requirement for innovative solutions to enable more efficient use of available water resources, to improve drinking water quality, and improve water resource planning is growing each year. This, in turn, is leading the global water sector to be worth 1 trillion USD per year by 2025.

IoT enables precise control over water resources data and contamination of sewage water, thus allowing an efficient and optimized management of water companies. Lowering pollution levels also helps water reuse projects to operate safely and efficiently. Smart water management systems can make a fast and significant improvement especially in urban areas and in agriculture to the cost and reliability of water supplies.

The IoT technology for wastewater management has now been implemented in four states of the U.S., four European countries, Israel and Australia with success stories flowing in, according to Goldfarb. The technology has reduced the cost of treating pollution by 40% and plans to continue growing in the U.S. and E.U.
