Data is everywhere, even the water sector has collected reams of data for decades. It has been only within the last few years that agencies, utilities, consultants and vendors woken up to unlock the hidden potential of data resources to manage maintenance and predict water flow. The move to leverage digital information in the water sector has been drastic with systems, to pair it with historic datasets and additional sensor data for creating customized digital dashboards and applications for water agencies. Historical information from data coming from water resources can be layered on real-time information for the workforce to take operational decisions on analytics which older workers over the years have relied on their gut to make.
