    IBM Israel Helps California Cut Down Water Usage:clap2:

    California has already announced its intention of cutting down water usage by a good 20 percent by 2020 to ensure that it makes a turn towards the green. They hope to get this done by turning towards cutting edge technology that will help them with both reduction of wastage and recycling of waste water. But that is a task easier said than done considering the fact that parts of California like Sonoma County's Valley of the Moon already are facing with a bit of water crisis. That is exactly where IBM Israel has stepped in to help out.

    If you were wondering, right off the bat, what IBM Israel are doing in California and why IBM in US is not handling the issue it is because the IBM team from the Middle East is one of the very best in the world when it comes to water management. With Israel having to constantly deal with droughts since its very formation, the region has adopted and developed some of the best water management technologies on the planet today. Getting back to California though, the new integrated system put in place in Valley of the Moon by IBM Israel will provide the state with all the necessary statistics on water usage along with an analysis and best possible solutions.

    The technology uses automatic leak detection systems and water management plans that help the local administrators in understanding and distributing water resources in a smart and sensible fashion. This is currently the test phase of the process and within six months others parts of UA will also see similar ventures. IBM Israel believes that when it comes to analyzing data and water technologies they are among the very best on offer and it would be only hard to argue. If California reaches its goals, then that claim would only be substantiated further.

    How does one "waste" water exactly?

    If I pour a thousand gallons of water into the ground, the water still exists and is still part of the water cycle and will eventually make it back into the drinking supply.

    It's not like it will disappear never to be seen again

    Well take into account California is a state that gives free college to illegals and fucks its own citizens, so fucking up the water isn't a surprise.
