    Big Data in water systems is an interesting topic. There is a lot of data recorded by SCADA and billing systems in the operations of water systems. I’d be interested to hear more about how this data is being used to analyze system performance, the tools available for analysis, and where Big Data in water is going.

    Thanks for the show.
