Mobile mapping saving billions of litres of water

GIS delivers real-time data visibility

When the Northern Territory Power and Water Corporation (PWC) identified that 15 per cent of Darwin’s water consumption was lost through leaks, it implemented a highly efficient water sustainability solution through GIS mapping.

The challenge was to check 30,000 residential water meters for leaks, recording, updating and monitoring data throughout the maintenance lifecycle.

Through the Living Water Smart efficiency project, PWC aimed to save over 4 billion litres of water over four years through effective water management.

Developing powerful mobile mapping tools helped PWC see data in real time to identify leaks and monitor maintenance.

Find out how mobile GIS technology helped PWC:

  • Detect and repair almost 3,000 leaks
  • Save up to 1 billion litres of water per year
  • Automate data integration to save $200,000 in personnel costs
  • Implement water conservation to reduce bills by 2 million dollars per year
  • Strengthen inter-agency and stakeholder relationships
