Big Data and the future of water management


The ubiquitous growth of data provides value in almost every domain of society and the water domain is not an exception. From preventing man‐made disasters like overflowing rivers containing toxic waste, to natural flooding, to raising public awareness in water conservation and minimizing the impacts of drought in arid regions. Finally, simply saving costs by improving the reliability of a city’s public water works has tremendous value. All of these goals are possible with the effective use of Big Data technologies. This article will show what big data can do, not only by a short analysis of Big Data in the water utilities, but also by illustrating the value of big data with real-life examples in the US.
