Filling the water flowmeter inaccuracy gap
As the fluid of life, water is needed and used by every single person on the planet, but with the growing impacts of climate change being felt across the worldwide water sector, action is required now to reduce demand, increase supply, and apply the principles of a circular economy to the way water is managed and shared.
Meeting the expected future demands on fresh water resources will require a dramatic change in the way the world thinks about fresh water and how it is measured. Metering is essential for measuring water usage and managing water supplies.
Most water meters around the world are small and primarily used to record domestic water consumption, but larger meters, while smaller in number, measure an equivalent volume of water and are key to managing both resource and demand. Using larger meters allows us to quantify how much water is being abstracted from underground aquifers, rivers, and other water bodies to provide clean water supplies to our cities.
Both small and large meters are, therefore, essential for effective, economic and sustainable water management. However, unlike...
