Flow metering in a smarter water industry

March 6

Overview: The water industry has been challenged to make further significant cuts in leakage and consumption in the next 10 years. Technology, in the form of smarter and more data driven systems, is expected to play a major role in helping meet these targets. Flow is likely to remain one of the most fundamental and important parameters for understanding and managing networks from source to tap. So how will the demands on flow measurement and metering change? Will it, for example, be for better accuracy, low flow sensitivity, data availability or assurance of data quality? How will the flow measurement and metering systems being developed and installed now meet those needs? This seminar will look at the demands on flow measurement and metering in tomorrow’s networks and the solutions being developed and implemented to meet those challenges.
