What will the drinking water supply networks of the future look like? Which technologies will lead the way and how smart are they really? Step into this future at the Smart Water Management Symposium – where the incredible value of sensors and data was unravelled.

At this symposium, the Smart Water for Europe project (SW4EU), co-funded by the EU, presented its results as well as best practices on leak detection, water quality, customer interaction and energy optimization.

The results of the SW4EU project were translated into impactful case studies for smart water supply networks. By combining data and experience from four sites in different circumstances across Europe, the initiative enables forward thinking and knowledge gathering about smart water on an unprecedented scale. An approach that empowers water utilities to be proactive, ensure water quality, enhance leak detection and improve asset management. This provides new insights that could save European water operators an estimated 3 billion euros and global water operators an estimated 10 billion euros a year.
