Las Vegas Valley Water District on the Cutting Edge of Aging Water Infrastructure Management and Leak Detection
The Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) leak monitoring project is a water conservation showcase site for The Global City Teams Challenge, a collaborative network of project teams or “action clusters”, working on innovative applications of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies within a smart city / smart community environment. The program is administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Project partners for the LVVWD water conservation project include AT&T, IBM, Mueller Water Products and the Nevada Center of Excellence. The project team selected water sustainability as its theme as the availability of fresh water resources is a problem effecting millions of people around the world. The project team set out to demonstrate that new technology approaches which are available today can help support a more sustainable plant.
