Water network operators are expected to efficiently manage drinking water distribution but lack necessary visibility into their systems to make data-informed decisions. These challenges present a host of real-time and long-term risks to internal operations and spending, the environment, and the utility’s relationship and reputation in the community. To optimize network hydraulics, operators don’t just need access to data — they need the resources and guidance to unlock and activate its value.
THE PATH TO OPTIMIZED WATER NETWORK PERFORMANCE
Through a combination of algorithms and machine learning, Network Real-Time Decision Support uses hydroinformatics to calibrate and optimize your existing hydraulic model. This enables the creation of a network digital twin which can visualize operating conditions, even in areas where there are no sensors, helping your utility uncover critical insights and realize the most transformative outcomes. With this information, operators can manage and correct drinking water distribution in real-time, with a clear understanding of water age, pressure and plant mix, through a single application that combines multiple data sources for maximum visibility.
MANAGE WATER PRESSURE
Use predicted pressure throughout the network, beyond sensing locations, to reduce high- and low-pressure issues.
MANAGE WATER AGE
Ensure water quality is delivered by monitoring and managing water age throughout the network.
DETERMINE PLANT SOURCES
For multiple treatment plant utilities, ensure corrective actions are taken at the correct plant when water quality issues occur.
WHY CHOOSE NETWORK REAL-TIME DECISION SUPPORT
Most digital solutions aren’t designed to support operators in making data-informed decisions based on live, dynamic conditions. Network Real-Time Decision Support is a real-time monitoring solution that reveals critical insights from your water network through the integration of sensor data, hydraulic modeling, GIS data, SCADA, and more into a single platform designed to support operators.
Xylem's hydroinformatics team makes it all possible. Working in close partnership with your utility, they bring together engineering, decision science and water expertise to calibrate and optimize your existing hydraulic model, enabling Network Real-Time Decision Support to provide operators with actionable guidance on which they can act.
- Ensure regulatory compliance - Comply with local and federal requirements by monitoring water quality and pressure.
- Increase customer satisfaction - Provide better transparency and service by reducing water main breaks and public health advisories.
- Reduce time to resolve issues - Identify and address issues more quickly; confirm results of corrective actions taken in a timely manner.
OPTIMIZING WATER NETWORK PERFORMANCE LEADS TO TRANSFORMATIVE OUTCOMES
The journey to becoming a utility of the future starts with leading-edge solutions that help unlock your system’s capabilities. Only Xylem can unite technology, expertise and global water leadership in a single partnership.
Xylem’s approach is to optimize your system based on continuously updated network data. Xylem’s Decision Intelligence then enables operators to leverage their system’s unique data sets, providing real-time and historical operational insights. Operators are able to quickly and more accurately determine the root cause of network issues, and validate the impact of their actions.
