Tracking Clean Water

charity: water Remote Water Project Sensors

SPECIAL MENTION: Charity: water has funded more than 44,000 water projects in 28 countries, but the nonprofit says just building clean water infrastructure isn’t enough. So charity: water developed groundbreaking sensor technology to analyze water flows in real-time. If the sensors—which are connected to the cloud—detect an issue, a technician can be sent to make repairs right away so clean water can be restored as quickly as possible. 7,354 sensors—which will safeguard the water of an estimated 1.4 million people—have been deployed to the field. —Amy Gunia
