Can the Internet of things solve environmental crises? | GreenBiz

“I recently met with a water utility company providing water and wastewater services for a major metropolitan area in the United States. We discussed their comprehensive approach to ensuring a clean water supply for the city, starting with source protection, water treatment and the distribution system.Think of their challenge: Regardless of the mix and concentration of pollutants or microbes present in the source of water (a river), they must ensure that they deliver a consistent supply and quality of water leaving their system for consumers. By the way, since the creation of the utility someĀ 80 years ago, the number of people they serve has quadrupled.

No surprise that they turned to the internet of things (IoT) for help.”
