398573 - Smart Water Grid: Current Status and Lessons Learned

Monday, June 4

Location: Lakeshore A

There are increasing water challenges focusing on quantity, quality, and energy. Climate change such as longer drought periods and a higher risk of flooding has affected the availability of freshwater resources. Global demand for water continues to increase dramatically due to population growth and economic development. Aging water infrastructure results in pipe leakage, loss of water, and inefficient energy use. Water regulatory agencies are mandating stricter environmental standards.
Smart Water Grid (SWG) is a proposal to address the challenges of the sustainable water management. This allows high reliability, diversification of water sources, low energy consumption, and cost reduction. There are a lot of innovative technologies that enable SWG: water treatment using multi-source water; multi-water loop; intelligent and integrated water resource management; smart water meter; advanced metering infrastructure; real-time collaboration platform; and smart water simulation.
This paper is intended to provide an overview of SWG and introduce the main technologies for SWG. Current status and future prospects are discussed, including a brief introduction to the SWG Research program in Korea. Lessons learned from the SWG research program are also discussed.
