In December 2017, we implemented a Smart Water Network in Adelaide CBD. We installed flow pressure and acoustic leakage sensors that provided near real-time information about what is occurring in the water network. This information helped us to detect and prioritise crews to fix faults, such as leaks, before they escalate and cause public disruption.
The Smart Water Network has since expanded across metro and regional South Australia, including smart wastewater technology installations, to improve the supply networks in each selected location.
The smart technology we have installed in the Adelaide CBD has enabled us to identify and proactively fix leaks before they impact customers. Our new insights into the network have seen us repair faults while the city sleeps and reduce water service interruptions and commuter delays.
Our smart water network is expanding. We are leading the way with the implementation of smart technology throughout South Australia. This technology is tailored to the specific needs of the selected locations to improve the water network within these areas and the experience for our customers.
Since the implementation of the Smart Water Network in Adelaide CBD, we've expanded our Smart Water Network into North Adelaide, Athelstone, Port Lincoln and Penneshaw. We've also rolled out our Smart Wastewater Network into Stonyfell and Gawler.
Smart infrastructure to date has included the installation of flow meters, pressure reducing valves, acoustic loggers, and H2S sensors.
SA Water will engage with the local community to keep them informed of the project’s progress during the installation process.
