Smart City – Internet of Water -Water Conservation Narrative
On a region-wide basis, the Rio Grande (M) Region does not have enough water supplies to meet demands through 2070, with the vast majority of deficits occurring in the irrigation category. Water Systems throughout are seeking out ways to use their big data warehouses to find optimizations, operational efficiencies and correlations to improve their overall performance. Machine learning is put in a few words, a mathematical approach to encoding software algorithms to learn models from data. These models can lead to pattern recognition, determine inferences and generate predictive forecasts to conserve water efficiently.
The Rio Grande Valley (Region M) is running out of water .
On a region-wide basis the Rio Grande (M) Regions does not have enough water supplies to meet demands through 2070, with the vast majority of deficits occurring in the irrigation category.
In the event of drought, Region M is projected to have a total water supply need of 717,000 acre-feet in 2020, increasing to 797,00 acre-feet by 2070.
