Context

ACF Type: textarea

Poor water quality and infrastructure management have a direct impact on quality of life. New technologies can help municipalities, but they face major obstacles: lack of time, budget, and expertise in artificial intelligence can hinder them from innovating sustainably, even if the necessary data is available.CANN Forecast provides preventative solutions to two water-related crises. Their technology detects harmful levels of E.coli concentration in urban watersheds, and identifies sources of contamination and at-risk pipes before they break. This helps municipalities prevent water contamination and reduce water waste as well as the associated rehabilitation costs to these crises.
