Water leakage, water contamination, inability to detect water quality are some of the problems affecting the existing drinking water infrastructures. Unmanaged wastewater can be a source of pollution, a hazard for the health of human populations and the environment alike. The majority of wastewater infrastructures results in massive run-off and flooding of cities in case of extreme rainfall events. One of the ways to address these problems is by creating smart water utilities, equipping them of smart distributed sensing systems, integrated with advanced information systems. The integration of the diverse networked sensors involved in the water utilities management is not straightforward. The objective of this research work has been to develop a OGC SWE (Sensor Web Enablement) architecture across different applications in the smart water utilities domain, capable of integrating the various networks of in-situ sensors and processing sensor observations into decision support systems, realizing sensor related services and data delivery. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
