Global Water Intelligence established the Global Water Awards in 2006 to recognize significant achievements in the international water industry. The awards span several categories and reward those initiatives in the water, wastewater and desalination sectors that move the industry forward through improved operating performance, innovative technology adoption, and sustainable financial models.

Layermark’s Event Management System (EMS) enables organizations to tackle the issue of severe weather conditions and ageing infrastructure.

EMS moves from siloed response to an integrated response model providing real-time information across all business units. Flood and water watch dashboards enable organizations to gather real-time data about the rising water levels and allow them to select crews to dispatch. EMS can be integrated into various work management systems and geospatial solutions such as Maximo, Everbridge, ArcGIS, GeoTab, Cityworks and SAP using the LayerExchange platform.

DC Water provides water and wastewater services to more than 700,000 residents and 21.3 million annual visitors with a total service area of 725 square miles. In 2021, DC Water began working together with Layermark to develop an event management system (EMS). This project is a shining example of utility climate resilience at its best. In addition, it enables DC waters to take a proactive approach allowing them to utilize all its available data to more quickly pinpoint problems, generate automatic alerts, optimize event response, minimize customer impacts and reduce recovery times.
