Addressing Metering Infrastructure with LoRaWAN

In the U.S., a water main breaks every two minutes, leaking enough water each day to fill 9,000 swimming pools, according to recent ASCE data. As critical infrastructure continues to age like it has in the water industry, utilities and municipalities must find practical solutions to rebuild and augment these systems with modern materials and technologies. In fact, the renewal and replacement of aging water and wastewater infrastructure has been the top challenge facing water utilities in the United States for the last seven years, according to the American Water Works Association (AWWA) State of the Water Industry Report. An example of innovation directly addressing today’s aging water infrastructure is the use of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) such as LoRaWAN and low-cost sensors to support new advanced metering infrastructure (AMI).
