Xylem recently offered a white paper on decision intelligence at WEFTEC in Chicago. The paper presents six strategies to transform the economics of utility water management.

Titled “Harness the Power of Decision Intelligence,” the paper spotlights the strategies of reducing non-revenue water, proactive asset management, ensuring water quality from source to tap, advancing water equity, managing urban watersheds and mastering the data deluge.

Together, these solutions provide a roadmap for unlocking the value of water information to make world-class water and wastewater services available everywhere, according to the company. The paper contains examples of cases where decision intelligence helped customers deliver measurable gains including:

  • Over 1 billion gallons of apparent water loss (over $4 million in historical revenue loss) revealed in Newport Beach, California, using modeling and advanced data analytics.
  • An estimated $38 million in capital project work saved and combined sewer overflow volume reduced by 247 million gallons in Cincinnati, Ohio, using assessment technologies, real-time monitoring, data analytics and system modeling.
  • An estimated $42 million saved and pipe failures reduced by over 73% in the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) managed area of Maryland, using advanced evaluation, inspection and continuous monitoring techniques.
