Water management is an industry that makes use of various technologies such as drones and wireless internet technologies to evaluate water resources. These innovations help transfer data surrounding the water’s quantity and quality. This data often helps in dangerous situations such as floods and other natural disasters by transferring the necessary information to government officials before it’s too late. There is also new technology that detects pipeline leaks to avoid drinking water becoming contaminated or hydrants bursting open.
- Smart technology that makes use of sensors, drones and wireless internet, has inherent capabilities that make it useful for enhancing water security.
- Such technology can, for example, transfer real-time information to government agencies in the event of a water emergency.
