Hong Kong water conservation boosted by new meters
Hong Kong has limited water reserves and relies primarily on Dongjiang in Guangdong, in Southern China, for its water supply. At the same time, however, it has one of the world's highest levels of water consumption, per capita, in the world.
"We are already successfully helping water providers in Macao, Singapore, Vietnam and the Philippines better manage limited water supplies, and now, with our technology, the Hong Kong water department will achieve its conservation and consumer awareness goals," said Marcel Regnier, Itron president and COO, Water.
With supply and storage constraints, a highly populated service territory, and increasing water demand, Hong Kong WSD needs to address these challenges by closely monitoring and managing its water resources.
