Southern Water trials smart sensors in pipelines

General - ©Southern Testing smart sensors

Southern Water is trialing the use of smart sensors to monitor water quality in its pipelines from reservoirs to customers taps in Rownhams, Hampshire. A network of around 100 sensors will be used to monitor the levels of PH and chlorine as well as establishing why discolouration occurs.

It is hoped the continuous monitoring devices will enable the utility to track the millions litres of water moving through the pipes. Alongside water quality parameters the devices will also be able to determine the location of leaks before they happen in order to minimise disruption.
