Preservation of springs and reduction of water losses

Water is an essential natural resource for life, being indispensable for human, animal and plant survival. However, it is a finite resource that needs to be preserved.

Springs are natural sources of water, such as rivers, lakes, dams and aquifers. They are essential for providing drinking water and maintaining environmental balance.

The preservation of water sources is essential to guarantee the availability of water for future generations. This can be done through actions such as:

Control of deforestation: deforestation contributes to soil erosion, silting of rivers and a reduction in water infiltration into the soil, which reduces the volume of water available in springs.

Combating pollution: Water pollution can cause harm to human and animal health, in addition to harming aquatic life.

Environmental education: environmental education is essential to raise awareness among the population about the importance of preserving natural resources.

Reduce water losses during distribution: When losses resulting from leaks or fraud are reduced, water collection from sources is also reduced.

Today Brazil loses 40% of the water it collects from sources during its distribution. If we reduced just 20% of lost water, there would already be enough water to supply the 35 million Brazilians who today do not have drinking water.

And what can be done to reduce water losses that occur before they even reach homes?

Investing in infrastructure to modernize distribution networks, replace old pipes and apply cutting-edge technology to help detect invisible leaks can help improve actual loss rates.

Reducing water losses is an important measure to ensure the availability of drinking water for the population. Furthermore, it contributes to reducing the operating costs of sanitation companies and preserving water sources.

About Stattus4

A Status4 is a cleantech focused on sanitation and with the mission of applying technology to preserve the essential thing: water.  

With Artificial Intelligence and IoT Sensing, we develop solutions – the Ada System and the 4Fluid – which transform field data into useful information and detect potential leaks in water distribution networks. The information contributes to the digitalization of sanitation processes, being important for making operational and strategic decisions.
