US utility, SJWD Water District has signed a three-year subscription with Geospatial AI provider, Rezatec, for its Dam Monitoring product.
SJWD Water District is a public water utility located in Spartanburg County, South Carolina serving a rapidly growing population of approximately 70,000. Currently, one of SJWD’s biggest challenges is responding to this increasing population. In the past five years, they have experienced, on average, a 4.5% annual customer growth rate.
Urbanisation is seeing more people living downstream of a dam than ever before. This represents a significant increase in the consequences of failure and the potential for catastrophic risk.
“Of all the assets SJWD owns and maintains, our dams have the highest potential for large impacts to our customers and downstream neighbours if not properly operated and maintained. SJWD decided to use Rezatec’s Dam Monitoring technology because of its ability to combine satellite data with AI analysis, to provide SJWD with a clearer picture of the changes that occur over time with our dams. Our goal is to use this technology to stay ahead of any changes that could impact the integrity of one of our dams” commented Billy Cothran, Chief Executive Officer at SJWD.
