Robots protecting vital resources

Robots may protect drinking water from terror attacks

From the article: The title of the article is a little misleading -- the robots would detect problems rather than protect the water. But it is easy to imagine another set of robotic sentries encircling a lake to prevent anyone from entering the watershed.

One thing that this sort of system would help with is industrial pollution. For example, if a sewage pipeline breaks and starts dumping raw sewage into a watershed, or a factory starts dumping chemicals into a waterway, a system like this would detect the problem immediately.
