Water Utility Research Report
The water sector is, and always will be, about people. Creating solutions that address affordability and improve resilience for U.S. water utilities requires a unique relationship between technology and the people using it.
Change can be difficult. But evolution, even in increments, is impactful and has proven to be worthwhile for utilities that are embarking on the journey.
The purpose of this research is to demonstrate that Intelligent Water can improve quality of life. The report, created in collaboration with Bluefield Research, explains why we focused the research on affordability and resilience and demonstrates how people can address these challenges in intelligent and sustainable ways.
Consumers and utilities alike are straining to maximize their budgets, while resilience shocks and stressors put the sector’s aging infrastructure at risk.
Operations and maintenance spending is on the rise, but capital spending is trending downward. Only 21 percent of utilities feel they are currently able to fully cover costs and services.
Advanced asset management tools, including those powered by AI and predictive analytics, can inform the best decisions for overall maintenance approach, rehabilitation or replacement interventions.
Intelligent Water’s digital solutions hold great potential that the workforce can maximize. With collective intelligence, the two groups combine to unlock significant value that would be inaccessible to either group on its own.
