Apps that predict bathing water quality, sensors that detect potential floodplains when it rains: Digital tools enable a more efficient and sustainable water management in times of climate change. In the European joint project Digital-Water.City (DWC) the Kompetenzzentrum Wasser Berlin (KWB) is exploring the eligible tools and how they work. In Paris, Sofia, Copenhagen, Milan and Berlin researchers will work on digital technologies to push smart city water management. KWB, the initiator and coordinator of the project, presented the project on 5 September 2019 at CityLAB Berlin.
