Google is trying to save water through a new water-saving technology that uses sensors to detect leaks in irrigation systems. This technology could help the company save about 500,000 gallons of water per year. In addition to this, Google is also trying to develop water-saving innovations for other products, like toilets. This new technology could help them reduce the amount of water they use in the washrooms. Hopefully, these innovations will save water in our lives and the world’s.
Currently, Google uses a lot of water to keep their data centers cool and to process YouTube videos and search queries. As climate change causes droughts throughout the world, Google is trying to conserve water and help surrounding communities. The company has begun funding the removal of water-hungry invasive plants in areas with high water demands. The company has also begun to install water-saving technology on toilets in low-income housing.
While Google has not disclosed specifics of its water consumption, it has promised to work towards becoming carbon-neutral by 2030. It has also pledged to help other tech companies reduce their consumption. And it’s working to do its part, as the company is funding several water-stewardship analytics tools. OpenET, for example, provides data on water evaporation trends, while BlueConduit helps identify hazardous water infrastructure.
