Cellular IoT A more intelligent way to combat water pollution

Wastewater overflows and sewerage spills are two of the most common types of water pollution worldwide. And both are extremely bad news. 

Contamination of the freshwater supply harms not only humans but all lifeforms. And seawater contamination harms vital marine ecosystems. 

Freshwater and marine ecosystems are already struggling to cope with toxic run-offs from multiple polluting sources such as unrecycled urban waste, pesticides, fertilizers, animal slurry from farming, and oil spills, to name but a few. These are all rich in nasty water pollutants such as phosphates, nitrates, aluminum, chlorine, ammonia, mercury, and lead.

These ecosystems certainly don’t need any extra pollution from wastewater and sewerage spills legally under the control of wastewater utilities worldwide. Yet aging wastewater and sewerage networks, growing urban populations, and the increasing frequency of heavy rainfall due to global warming are doing nothing to improve the problem. 

It really is becoming one of many vitally important environmental concerns that the world needs to address for the sake of public health today and future generations tomorrow. And it has understandably become an extremely hot topic and political issue for younger people.
