You're not wrong, it can seem a little weird that a provider is handing out devices to help with treatment. But that isn't what we're saying they need help with. In fact, they're pretty great at treating water.
Where we want to help is in measuring the effectiveness of their treatment and optimizing operations to maintain the pipe infrastructure. This part is really really hard, because if you haven't noticed, those pipes are underground and difficult to see. So we strive to be an early indicator of data to help with this effort.
To do this, everyone within the service area receives a wifi enabled device with sensors to monitor and report water quality data.
