Forecasting your city’s water main pipes most vulnerable to breakage, 5x more effective than the traditional approach.
Each day, approximately 850 water main breaks occur in North America, for a total repair cost of over $3 billion per year.
Aging Infrastructures are reaching its end of life. Inadequate replacement plans and a general lack of concern of the rehabilitation of the water mains, are impacting citizens and their communities. Water infrastructre rehabilitation costs are expected to increase in the coming decades as water networks deteriorate, and each unexpected pipe failure comes with a high economic and environmental impact.
Our InteliPipes solution leverages AI in order to identify your city’s most vulnerable segments of watermain pipes.
We work in collaboration with city managers to help them transition towards a more cost-effective smart city. InteliPipes allows municipal decision-makers to optimize replacement activities, and to better estimate the long-term budgetary needs for the maintenance of the water distribution network.
