Data Story


UnityWater has been working relentlessly to improve water sustainability.
The data has shown that UnityWater has been consistently providing high quality water for the users.

The pain point we identified lies in the lack of direct linkage between the users and UnityWater.
As an example, UnityWater provide support to monitor and notify the users quarterly if there are any abnormal usage during the period of time. However, a leakage could easily cause over thousands of damage over the period of time, and not to mention the non-monetary damage, such as reputation and waste of natural resources.

By using data from Smart Meter, UnityMizu can build profile for each household and establish a user profile. This will allow UnityWater to notify its user of abnormal usage in the matter of days or hours.

But UnityMizu does not stop there, besides that monitoring usage, we also want to encourage reduced usage. ATO data has shown that Queenslanders are generous with their giving, and UnityMizu and UnityWater want to be behind Queenslanders in giving.
