Taking a look at the various accomplishments the country has made, you’ll notice a strong history of major infrastructure breakthroughs that have resulted in prosperous, national advantages. From as early as the introduction of the railroad, these milestones have lead to many competitive advantages.
One major example of infrastructure breakthroughs focuses on what is arguably the country’s most vital resource: water. Drought conditions across the United States are increasingly impacting cities. In fact, the American Water Works Association indicates that the 230,000+ water line breaks each year in the country have resulted in costs of more than $2 billion annually for public water utilities. It is imperative to have a system in place to address non-revenue water loss.
North Miami Beach has been actively deploying smart water infrastructure technology during the past few years. Its ROI numbers present a strong image of how essential it is to have such an infrastructure in place. According to Itron, North Miami Beach’s utility has already identified and repaired more than 20 leaks, resulting in over 20 million gallons of water saved and savings of more than $35,000.
