Water is the city’s most prized resource and its smart management is one of the main challenges faced by Smart Cities.

Based on our cities’ inefficient water management and treatment system, up to 50% of the water entering the system is lost through leaks in water infrastructures. On the one hand, cities have drinking water supply networks which have deteriorated, with low rates of renewal with more efficient materials and, on the other, there are waste water treatment plants that have not progressively changed their dimensions as the city’s population increases.

Not only does this inefficiency lead to significant environmental impacts in the city, it also impacts municipal budgets, as isolated solutions are provided in turn, as well as producing access and supply problems or bad smells due to lack of proper purification.
