Making every drop count
A leaking pipe that drips at the rate of one drop per second ends up wasting 1600 Liter of water a year at one place of the pipes/taps/plumbing fixtures.
A quantity that could mean:
Three years of drinking water for an average person in a developing nation.
We tackled the problem at its root with our
Smart metering solution
It is well-known that leakage and unaccounted consumption are the major contributors to water wastage.
Our plan was to eliminate water wastage on our campuses, and take a step towards becoming water-sustainable.
With our smart meters, we can monitor water flow in real time and identify the problems that cause leakages.
Water meter installed in our Bangalore campus. The smart meter monitors the flow rate of water in real time and records daily averages.
We have installed close to 1000 no smart water meters in all Infosys campus till date.
The central command center helps in monitoring and analyzing data sent by the smart water meters in real time.
Water consumption and flow dashboards help in identifying deviations from the average recorded by the smart meters and alert us to potential problems such as leakages and deposits.
These meters do more than recording flow-rates
What makes them smart?
The meters are installed in the water pipes at the distribution and consumption points. They record the flow rate in real time.
Any change in the rate of flow or water consumption pattern is communicated real-time to our central monitoring system, thus allowing for early diagnosis and optimization.
This helps us identify problems like salt deposits or cracks in pipes, and correct them immediately.
Across our campuses in India, installing smart meters has helped us plug water wastage. Per capita consumption has dropped by almost 64% compared to 2008 levels.
