Spot External Risks Around Water Assets and Increase Their Distribution Efficiency

Spottitt’s satellite-derived and AI-powered monitoring technology allows water network operators to quickly detect and respond to water leaks and other hazard issues, reducing material and financial waste and minimising the impact on customers.  

Water network operators are responsible for ensuring safe and clean water delivery to homes, businesses, and communities. Maintaining a reliable and efficient water supply system is crucial for public health and safety. Water pipeline risk assessment and remote water monitoring systems are essential tools that help water utilities ensure the integrity of the water supply system.

Water pipeline risk assessment involves identifying and assessing potential risks that can compromise the safety and quality of the water supply. These risks can range from pipeline corrosion to violating encroachments to natural disasters. A comprehensive risk assessment can help water pipeline operators prioritise maintenance and repair activities, reduce downtime, and prevent costly incidents.

Our innovative tool helps water infrastructure operators survey their critical assets remotely, in near real-time and in a cost-effective manner.

One of Our Water Utility Clients

sa water company

Client’s Project Request: 

How can we identify underground water leaks in a timely manner to generate automated workflows to assess damage and impacts to customers and water loss?

 

Solution:

Asset management, inspection and failure detection from space

Description:

Spotttitt was working with SA Water in trialling Earth Observation (EO) satellites to help the utility improve its management and monitoring of more than 27,000 kilometres of water main across South Australia.

Satellite imagery collected and geospatial analytics delivered aimed to identify changes in vegetation over time near SA Water infrastructure – particularly in regional and remote areas – potentially indicating an ongoing pipe leak that may have otherwise gone unnoticed for an extended period of time.

The satellites can also monitor vegetation growth to enable a better understanding of any bushfire risk on SA Water land, to then plan subsequent mitigation work, ensuring the safety and protection of the assets and surrounding community.
