The Acoustic Science Experts
Helping water resources go further – and water systems work smarter.
Growing cities and expanding industries depend on water utilities and system operators to fulfill today’s increasing water demands, yet efficiently manage water resources to meet the needs of future generations. Unpredictable climate changes combined with aging water distribution infrastructure are the biggest threats to sustainable water management. With billions of gallons -- and billions of dollars -- lost to water pipe leaks and breaks every year, utilities are searching for cost-effective and user friendly technologies to better manage their water systems.
