Currently, drinking water quality is checked by random manual sampling followed by lab tests

Labour intensive

Takes long time from sampling to results

Environmentally unfriendly

Too little information on water networks performance

There is a lack of online monitoring and integrated data analytics for microbial water quality management

People at the risk of disease and death

Significant increase in water utilities operational costs and regulatory penalties

Public’s declining trust in the tap water

Water networks vulnerable to cyber-physical attacks
