Water shortage caused by the intensification of the impacts of climate change, population growth, and accelerated urbanization require immediate action on development of technologies for effective management of water supply and consumption. In addition, aging water infrastructure leads to water loss and increase in non-revenue water. Smart water grid technologies are a promising solution for resolving a growing number of critical global water challenges. The adoption of technologies such as sensors, data analytics, and smart meters in water distribution networks will allow to control water losses and its inefficient use, thus ensuring financial savings. The study focuses on the advantages of adopting smart water grid technologies, integration of information and communication technologies and meters, devices and processes. The study also provides information about latest achievements in the development of water monitoring and control, leakage detection and prevention technologies, as well as smart water metering integrated with ICT.
