The developments in the field of automation, and especially computerization, are going so fast that the water-dominated water sector cannot lag behind. Where water policy normally dictates the pace, now the rapidly innovative ICT technology seems to determine the developments.
The control room has already entered the water sector. In water management, this is already indispensable. But nowadays, water boards and drinking water companies also have control rooms from which things can be controlled and monitored remotely. The current state of affairs is an ever-increasing automation. The future will mainly bring more computerization, as recently appeared at the ICT Group Water Congres 2019. Waterforum was present at the leading Water Congres and published the accompanying article.
