IBM Launches Smarter Cities Program

Crews have begun installing "smart water" meters at homes in Dubuque, Iowa, reports kcrg.com.

The meters will give the city's government and citizens the digital tools to measure, monitor and alter the way they use water. The smart water meters include special low-flow sensing technology from a local manufacturer, A.Y. McDonald, that will help the public works department and residences reduce water use and detect leaks. An estimated 30 percent of households use water unnecessarily because of undetected leakage in faucets and toilets.

"They will be able to see on a more daily basis and eventually more frequent than that, what's going on in their house so they can find the leaks and manage their water use better," said Cory Burbach, City of Dubuque.
