The East Bay’s water conservation campaign

IoT applications promise to make conservation campaigns even easier and more effective by tracking progress and offering—or even automating—new ways to conserve. Simply giving consumers more insight into when or where they use water and how they compare to neighbors can encourage conservation, as the Municipal Water Department in East Bay (California) recently demonstrated. Partnering with WaterSmart, the department saved 5 percent in water consumption by giving 10,000 customers access to a Web portal that showed how each stacked up against families of comparable size, as well as by providing ideas for improving water conservation.
