The Connected Water Utility
The water industry faces serious challenges of aging infrastructure, budget constraints, water resilience, and the need to operate and maintain efficiently with fewer resources. With the prevalence of cheaper smart sensors / devices, Internet of Things, better connectivity, and software, many utilities are embarking on the digital transformation journey. However, what does this all mean for utilities and how do they take advantage of these technologies and massive amounts of data?

This keynote will focus on leading water and wastewater utilities who have embraced and leveraged these digital technologies by creating a data strategy and using their real-time data to drive smarter decisions to reduce opex and capex, increase asset life, meet environmental compliance, etc... while reducing risk.
10:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Digital Transformation in Water Production
California Water Service produces over 5 billion gallons of water per year.  Our challenge is keeping track of each gallon - its source, cost and location.
PI AF is a perfect architecture for our digital transformation. With just 20 or so AF Templates, we configured calculations for our 1000+ pumps automatically and we aggregate volumes of data from all our pumps into a handful of meaningful production numbers! People now discuss business issues rather than production mechanics.


11:35 AM - 11:55 AM
