Smart Water Infrastructure



The Water New Zealand Smart Water Infrastructure Special Interest Group (SWIG) brings together water asset managers, operators, vendors, consultants and academics to increase the capacity of the water sector to adopt digital and smart water initiatives and solutions. Digital and Smart Water initiatives and solutions use data to improve water service delivery. Examples include;

  • Automation
  • SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition)
  • Data management
  • Data analysis
  • BIM (Building Information Modelling)
  • AI / Machine learning
  • Statistical models  
  • Real-time models 
  • Digital twins
  • IoT (Internet of Things) / Smart meters

This Group shares collective knowledge and experiences of digital and smart water solutions, collaborates on work towards standards and consistent approaches and identifies key competencies and access to relevant training.
