The City of Raytown has signed Kansas City-based startup NEER, an intelligent real time water management platform, to comprehensively manage the city’s sewer and stormwater systems. The NEER platform will provide a model and assess the risk condition of the sewer mains and storm sewer collection system.
“The health and safety of our citizens is of utmost importance to us, and by utilizing NEER’s platform to manage our city’s sewer systems in real time, we will better be able to predict issues, manage resources and maintain a high standard of health and safety for residents,” says Jose Leon, Director of Public Works of Raytown.
There is an estimated $10 billion spent annually worldwide on reactive repairs, and $50 billion annually on routine maintenance. By using this state-of-the-art technology to manage systems, the City of Raytown hopes to reduce the amount being spent on system maintenance and repair. The reduction of overall cost of the repair maintenance of the sanitary sewer and storm sewer system will provide future savings for citizens.
“We have seen, over the past several months, that sewer systems play a significant role in maintaining health and safety, as well as a large impact on the city budget. We are excited to do our part, by bringing technology and providing efficient service for the citizens of Raytown, to create long term quality results” says Leon.
