Title: When Water Hits the Road: Use IoT for Safety! 

Description: Stormwater doesn’t just affect residents, buildings, and roadways – it can have significant consequences on the environment. Untreated stormwater, which feeds into sewer systems and ditches, often carries debris, sediment, bacteria and chemicals that make their way into nearby streams, rivers, and lakes. This subsequently degrades water quality and harms aquatic life. With analytically driven work, SAS is able to make objective, unemotional decisions that are backed by facts and data. It may be impossible to solve flooding, but data can be used to improve quality of life for Maryland communities. SAS will share their work and findings with other counties and the State of Maryland by demonstrating how communities can use analytics and IoT to better prepare for and respond to flooding.
