Water is a vital part of life, wherever you are in the world. It’s a natural resource that sometimes we do take for granted.

The issue of climate change is a hot topic of conversation and with our ever-changing environment, we should take a step back and contemplate how we can all do our bit to support the environment we live in. 

Less than 3 percent of the water on Earth is fresh, meaning the majority is chemically treated before we can consume it. If we want to help the environment and decrease our carbon emissions, it means we need to decrease our usage, so less water needs to be treated.

This means we can save time and money on chemical treatment on the amount of water that has to be treated, or that uses energy unnecessarily. It may also mean there is less need for additional reservoirs. Less chemicals used in the treatment of water and wastewater means there is less energy and materials used in the process.

Making the Smarta Switch

By changing both day-to-day processes within businesses and habits around the household, there can be benefits for both our banks and the environment. So, not only can our carbon footprint be decreased, but costs can be reduced by implementing water-saving devices and technology that detects areas for efficiency improvement. The more efficient you are with your water, the lower your bills are, and the overall energy consumption decreases, thus reducing carbon emissions which contributes to the global climate change issue.

 

At Smarta, weuse SUMS (Smarta Utilities Monitoring Systems), our own Automated Meter Reading (AMR) technology, so we can use real-time data to track usage as often as every 15 minutes. This is ideal for helping us spot gradual and sudden changes which indicate changes in consumption profiles.

We care about the environment and want to make sure we look after it aswell as all our customers. With high quality service and  our experienced and knowledgeable team , you can be sure your water management and long-term sustainability goals are in safe hands.
