SITUATION T he project aims to provide accurate real - time water usage data to enable more precise billing and reduce the risks of water leakage on physical sites. The data received will allow Severn Trent Water's systems to assess water consumption within the network and provide a realistic picture of how much water is put into the network to serve customers. From the customer side, it will allow them to be notified about the out of the ordinary consumption size and potentially save costs by better understanding their usage levels.
