Water Utilities Urged to Exploit Data, Use Less Guesswork
In the water industry, data is driving the discussion. To understand what this means requires a story about motor oil.

For decades, car manufacturers recommended that vehicles have their engine oil changed at least every 3,000 miles without fail.

But these real-world conditions don't tend to factor into the carmaker's original guidelines.

From Internet of Things to Internet of Water: How Integrated Data Can Help Stop "Day Zero"
In 2018, Cape Town residents stared down "Day Zero," the moment when the water system – jeopardized by the combination of population growth, drought cycles, aging infrastructure and deferred system improvements – was predicted to literally run dry. Fortunately, citizens rallied by heeding the conservation calls, and the skies opened. A historic crisis was averted for its more than 3 million residents. But the lessons lingers on: Government and water industry leaders the world over are reconsidering how climate impacts and deferred maintenance threaten the resilience of our supply.
