Revolutionize Operations through Digital Transformation in the Water Sector (Part 1)

Ting Lu1, Barry Liner2, Fidan Karimova3, Reese Johnson4

Intelligent water systems (IWS) or smart water technologies have the promise to revolutionize operations at water and wastewater utilities. As the digital evolution continues in the water sector, there are challenges (like workforce skills, knowledge transfer, and cybersecurity) and opportunities (including predictive maintenance, optimization of operations and capital planning, and water quality protection).

30 minute introduction – IWS state of the industry in North America, covering definition of the types of IWS technologies (Artificial Intelligence, sensor networks, visualization, etc.), challenges, and opportunities.

30 minute case studies:

Clean Water Services: presentation on Digital transformation journey with integrating people, policy and technology together, and digital solution examples.

Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati: using IoTs and cloud based solutions to monitor and optimize the entire watershed with over 500,000 data points per day to minimize overflows and drive over $100 million of capital expenditures every year.

City of Houston: smart water framework and the pathway to get to smart utility for asset management, process optimization and utility management over the entire metro Houston area.

30 minutes panel discussion:

An interactive panel discussion with top utility leaders and technology providers together to discuss industrial trends, barriers on adopting smart technologies, and ways to get start on the digital journey.

List of potential technologies for the panel discussion:

- EMAGIN: Provide an operational intelligence platform, HARVI, which supports real-time decision making when controlling critical processes.

- Pluto AI: Provide an intelligence platform for water and wastewater plants to reduce energy consumption, predict process performance, and minimize operating costs.

- NJB Soft: Provide a Sampling and Monitoring System (SAMS) software where water quality data is automatically uploaded and stored for easy tracking and trending.
