Creating the world’s most liveable city.
Auckland wants to be the world’s most liveable city, but unpredictable wastewater overflows are polluting its beaches. Swimmers don’t know where it’s clean and safe to go into the sea. We used our tools to see the unseen.
Collaborating with local partners, we pinpointed 10 invaluable data streams to measure the performance of Auckland’s wastewater infrastructure.
Allowing us to predict the water quality across 84 different beaches.
We present this information back to the public in real-time. Now we help 350,000 people know when it's safe to swim, and Auckland gets a step closer to becoming the world’s most liveable city.
Our tools show you more
Moata allows us to interrogate exactly how Auckland’s infrastructure is affected by real-world variables. From this we can provide advanced scenario planning, helping to manage risk and maximise the impact of future investment to improve social, economic and environmental health.
These created one billion data points which are analysed every single day.
How do you stop a city’s sewage system from flooding?
Increasing demands on our sewage and water systems are putting people at risk. When extreme weather combines with overuse, the systems can flood, releasing wastewater into public spaces.
Through a variety of specially installed sensors, our tools model the water and sewage infrastructure of a city 24/7.
Our expertise helps us understand where to place the right sensors to get the best results.
Combining these results with real-time data from external sources enables us to see the unseen. This helps our clients make better decisions, discover new efficiencies and pinpoint flooding incidents before they happen – the results are transformational.
