Conservation of water is the careful, mindful use and safety of the water. It requires both the quantity and the quality of the water used. Water is an essential fuel for the survival of all living.
As the human population is growing, there has been a real demand for water resources. The lack of maintenance of traditional water sources such as rivers and dams, the uncaring and ill-treatment of groundwater, and the inaccurate preservation of surface water implementations have made the problem even more serious.
This problem appears to have not yet been addressed in the coming years, and thus, future generations are going to struggle. The Following Graphic shows how much water is being wasted.
Saving water, time, and money through water conservation can be beneficial for Utilities and their customers, not just in the summer, but throughout the year. It is defined as the “beneficial reduction in water use, waste and loss” and is proven to be the most economical and environmentally protective management tool for meeting water supply challenges.

Energy Saved is Energy Created
Util360 uses its AWS powered Digital Utility Platform for Scalability and processing to develop a comprehensive approach to regulate energy and water usage. We Strive to reduce water leakage and operating costs while reducing consumption by up to 50 percent. Here are some ways in which our Platform is helping to achieve conservation goals.
Educate Customers on the Need for Conservation
Util360’s Water Reports generated through AWS’s Cloud ML Processing to offer Customized message delivery over mobile, email, and print and can be tailored to the specific reduction targets or irrigation schedules instituted by the Utility.
Reduce Water Usage by an Average of 5%
- Communicating Goals
Individual household reduction goals are dynamically through Util360’s Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning calculations and then delivered to residents through easy to understand visual communication.
- Tracking and Reporting Compliance
The Util360’s Analytics Dashboard provides a special drought module which provides charts on overall conservation trends as well as detailed household performance reports and visibility into which customer segments are complying with reduction goals.
Detect and Alert residents to Possible Leaks
- Advanced Metering Infrastructure and Non-AMI Leak Detection
Util360’s Subscription reports are sent directly to your inbox which detail likely leaks due to the persistent increase in consumption, regardless of consumption read frequency. We rank leaks by severity and also offer a simple view of resolved and outstanding Leaks.
- Leak Resolution
The Util360’s Platform delivers irregular water-use alerts directly to the homeowners over SMS or email. This provides for faster leak Resolution, reduced water loss, improved property protection, and better customer relations.
Detect and Notify Irrigation Violators
- Irrigation Analytics
For water suppliers with AMI, Util360 can detect irrigation Patterns from interval consumption data and deliver a report of likely violators, thus improving compliance and reducing enforcement costs.
- Violation Reports
Both AMI and non-AMI water suppliers are offered reports on possible compliance on the part of residential customers. Irrigation Violation reports allow utilities to target specific customer segments with Compliance messaging before resorting to more stringent Penalties.
Need for Water Conservation
Despite the reliance on fresh water by humans and their commercial operations, clean water supplies are becoming harder to find. The impact of climate change, droughts, increasing agricultural needs, pollution, and population growth on freshwater supplies is widespread.
It is crucial that we all make smart choices in order to save water, Utilizing modern technologies and Systems to spread awareness and encourage water conservation.
Power of Technology to Conserve Water and Energy
As an organization, Utilities need to communicate and engage with their customers more than ever before in a connected world.
Today, utility customers expect their providers to provide them with information not only increasing their knowledge about the risks associated with wasting water, but also providing them with personalized recommendations for managing their own water consumption.
Util360 with the power of AWS is helping Utilities to seamlessly interact with consumers on their favorite devices and easily send information that helps them track and manage their water usage through notifications, alerts, and self-service portals. Visit Util360 to Learn more.
