The Critical Role of Flowd Smart Water Metering Solutions in Australia Amidst El Niño

El Nino, the climatic phenomenon characterised by warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, has once again reared its head in Australia.

As we grapple with the potential consequences of this weather pattern, it’s imperative to recognise the critical role that FLOWD Smart Water Metering can play in mitigating the challenges and implications posed by El Niño in Australia.

El Nino is notorious for disrupting weather patterns worldwide, and Australia is no exception. When El Niño takes hold, it often brings:


Prolonged Droughts

El Niño tends to suppress rainfall in many parts of Australia, leading to extended periods of drought. Reduced precipitation can have devastating effects on water availability for agriculture, households, and industries.


Higher Temperatures

El Niño is associated with higher temperatures, exacerbating evaporation rates and intensifying the stress on water resources.


Increased Risk of Bushfires

The combination of drought and elevated temperatures during El Niño events increases the risk of bushfires, which further deplete water supplies and pose a significant threat to communities.
