Flanders tackles water challenges with Internet of water

Apr 23, 2020
Internet of Water Flanders is a research and innovation project to develop and deploy a system to digitally monitor, in real-time, water quality indicators across Flanders.

A network of 2500 new low-cost sensors are being installed at selected locations across Flanders. These sensors are placed in different water types: surface water, groundwater and waste water.

The permanently monitored, real-time data will allow authorities, water managers and other involved actors to take immediate and appropriate measures if necessary.

The continuous real-time data flows generated by Internet of Water Flanders complement the measuring networks of the Flemish Environment Agency (VMM), that are based on laboratory analyses of grab samples and data from multi-parameter probes.

This fine-grained measurement network and forecasting system can also be scaled-up for deployment in other regions of the world.

Water, air and the environment. These are the three domains in which VMM is active.
