Short description: Approximately 15% of the local population of the municipality uses water from water catchments. The maintenance needs to be upgraded in the direction of digitalization, optimization and automation in the regulation and notification of the status of water catchments, to ensure drinking water safety.
Market potential: The problem is comparable to other suburban or rural municipalities, which don’t have a fully integrated water supply system, so the product could be duplicated, capitalized or reused.
Timing: Anytime. Current maintenance of such catchments includes: annual maintenance, weekly maintenance, and manual monitoring & chlorine application.
Desired result: In any case, it is primarily about the reliability and security of the water supply regulation, due to the optimization and introduction of new technologies for monitoring and notifications. On the other hand, it would also to optimize the cost burden due to the reduction of the lease of monitoring.
Information on challenge owner: City/municipality.
