UK launches £4m fund to run fibre optic cables through water pipes
The project could bring fibre broadband to remote areas while monitoring pipes for water leaks.
About a fifth of water put into public supply every day is lost via leaks and it is hoped that sensors could help deliver water companies’ commitment to reduce water loss by half.
Aquilar believes this is a great idea to save water – especially as 20% of all water leaks out before it even reaches homes.
