More than 2.1 billion people still lack access to safely managed drinking water and about 40% of the global population face water scarcity. Despite how valuable this resource is, water can sometimes lead to maintenance problems in housing societies. Be it receiving contaminated or unclean water, experiencing a shortage of water, or dealing with unforeseen leaks and wastage, housing societies are facing a lot of challenges in the cover of water scarcity in metro cities. Water is one of the most undervalued but overused commodities while being a necessity for people. Let’s find out how and where are we going wrong while dealing with this major water crises.
Water management has become extremely crucial in India solely due to its scarcity and high cost. Depending on the society’s size, water tankers cost anywhere between a few rupees to 40 lakhs a year. Increasing cost of water tankers and maintenance charges are encouraging residential complexes to adopt smart infrastructure management solutions like the Planet Smart City’s SIM app, that saves on the costs associated with manpower, electricity and water consumption and undetected leakages in the system.
In a country like India where the battle for energy and water is never ending, AIoT enabled solutions stand as a boon, especially for housing societies that are looking to digitize, automate, and sustainably manage their water and energy consumption.
