Waterwatch© is a software-based service developed for municipal water departments and water utilities. It provides residential customers with accurate, individualized information on how water is used in their homes.
The service uses a copyright-protected computer program to analyze consumption patterns and quantify the amount of water consumed by each end-use. The program “engine” builds a statistically valid model that is derived from wateruse databases, compiled by Pencilbrook, and from survey data provided by the customer.
Waterwatch© was developed by conservation program consultant, Mick Fiato. Mike Lints, Sc.D. created the engineering model, mathematical algorithms and computer code. Ron Northcutt built the web applications, and maintains the web platform and IT environment.
