Our CEO Jesse recently met with Heather Wright from The Download to talk about how Waterwatch can help protect our water quality and citizens. Here are a few quotes from The Download article.

“But our system handles things like the early warning call-outs that alert the companies looking after infrastructure for a council [regarding] the state of the pumping stations, manholes or sumps they are monitoring,”
“If IoT wasn’t a thing, we wouldn’t be able to do that. Even five years ago, you couldn’t have provided a council with devices you could install in a sewerage system that can operate for more than 10 years on a battery for the price we can now.”
