The Future is Now: Smart Water Infrastructure
Date & Time
May 15, 2019 1:00pm – 2:30pm
660 North Capitol Street NW, Washington, DC
Host: Value of Water Campaign, National League of Cities and National Association of Counties
As the US water sector prepares to spend $20 billion over the next decade on capital and operating expenditures, the use of smart water solutions-hardware, software, and analytics-is becoming more popular and necessary. The uptick in sector spending is driven by compounding challenges facing municipalities: maintaining and expanding water infrastructure, water distribution system leaks, rising energy costs, rate affordability for customers, and emerging water contaminants. As local municipalities face mounting pressure to “do more with less,” smart water infrastructure is an important solution that needs to be scaled up.
This interactive event will feature a cross-sector panel of leaders discussing the future of smart water infrastructure solutions-how they can be deployed to solve our most pressing water infrastructure challenges, and the role policymakers can play in making those solutions a reality.
