“We can’t achieve net zero without digital tools, without knowing measuring to manage. Digital Water is an integral part of how we address these challenges.”
Oliver Grievson, Chair of the IWA Digital Water Programme
Water and wastewater utilities must embrace digital solutions
“Digital water is already here” is the clear message after interviewing utility executives and leading experts from around the globe. From big data solutions to advanced management of the distribution network to digital customer engagement programs, nearly all utilities we talked to have begun the digital transformation journey. While the transformation is not always easy, with ageing infrastructure, inadequate investment, changing climate and demographics, digital water is now seen not as an ‘option’ but as an ‘imperative.“
IWA Publishing is pleased to announce that we will accept full submissions from the Digital Water Summit to the following journals: Water Science and Technology and the Journal of Hydroinformatics, any papers that are accepted will be collected in a Virtual Special Issue and also shown on the Digital Water Collection.
