Shanghai Urban Environment Project, China

We provided technical support to Shanghai Water Authority for the third phase of the Shanghai Urban Environment Project, which aims to improve the city's water supply quality and levels. The World Bank funded project seeks to grow China’s economy in a sustainable way.

Shanghai’s main source of water is from the Huangpu River, which runs through a number of administrative provinces before reaching the city. The Shanghai Water Authority measures water quality and identifies contamination in the river before it enters the water system via a city-wide monitoring network and control centre.

Mott MacDonald provided technical expertise to develop a thorough study of the Shanghai water sector. This involved assessing and developing the authority’s water demand management regulations, promoting a public education and awareness programme, studying water lost before it reaches the customer, demanding profile management and enhancing a water reclamation programme to make productive use of wastewater.

We also carried out a water supply risk assessment to improve water provision security. This included a water resources strategic planning study, a vulnerability assessment for water utility companies and emergency planning training for water utility staff. This project will make a remarkable contribution to Shanghai’s water operation.

We worked on the first two phases of the project which involved the initial set-up of the central water control centre. We then proposed the policy, measures and suggestions required for the sustainable development of Shanghai’s water resource utilisation.
