Water Conservation and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef

Today we’re traveling to Australia, where the government is aiming to tackle its distribution pipe leaks, a country-wide goal that is intended to not only boost water conservation but also save one of the world’s most important natural wonders: the Great Barrier Reef. For those unaware, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world.

Part of the solution to address these goals involves the use of Itron’s water solution, which will save Australia millions of gallons of water by modernizing Australia’s distribution system across the entirety of Queensland using Itron’s cutting-edge IoT network and more than 50,000 ultrasonic water meters. With the embedded technology in these meters, Australia will be able to view and closely monitor the water’s quality and distribution from the source to its final destination. These sensors can communicate with each other to provide an alert the moment a leak is detected. Water companies no longer need to deal with the high costs of manually inspecting several miles of pipe.

McCrometer’s McMag 2000 and McMag 3000 Are More Than Meets the Eye

The McCrometer® McMag 2000 and McMag 3000 may have similar names and a small number change, but the differences between the two electromagnetic (mag) meters go much deeper. For example, the Mc®Mag 3000’s sensor is identical to the FPI’s, except it has more electrodes, and the line is more invasive. The tilted sensor positioning, however, … Continued
