Summary

U.S. cities are investing billions of dollars to upgrade aging water infrastructure. It's not just about fixing leaky pipes: the convergence of Internet-connected sensors, big data and artificial intelligence means tomorrow's water systems won't be like those that came before. Learn how cities are using smart water infrastructure to respond to rising demand, tighter environmental regulations and risks posed by climate change. Panelists will discuss how smart water technology can help cities cope with problems like flooding and sewer overflow. They will also assess the political and technical obstacles to creating cities and watersheds that are resilient and responsive to human needs.
