Drones for wastewater treatment facilities are providing robust insights that reduce costs, increase operational efficiency, and bolster the delivery of clean water.
Clean water is a fundamental necessity, and treatment facilities face daily challenges that inhibit its safe and healthy production. Energy consumption, costs of overhead, and infrastructure failures are just a few issues treatment facilities contend with to ensure clean water is accessible to their municipalities.
Drones offer a new opportunity for wastewater plants to streamline and protect the delivery of clean water. With drones, plant managers can collect previously unknown, in-depth data through aerial photos and videos. This drone information lends itself to efficient and inexpensive site inspections, the ability to leverage technologies like 3D mapping and photogrammetry, increased worker safety, and more.
