Clean water networks

We have a long history of excellence in modelling all stages of the water treatment process, from ground water and source works to network modelling and distribution. Detailed knowledge of the way the network operates, gained through modelling, is essential to the efficient use of assets. We also have experience in planning for non-infrastructure assets, incorporating deterioration and reliability modelling techniques.

With over 80 years’ experience covering every aspect of water management, we have demonstrated the skills needed to deliver sustainable solutions.

Network modelling can be used at all stages of the asset cycle as it offers water utility companies with key information to make key business decisions. As a planning tool, it is used at different levels of detail as the basis for master plans and strategic studies for feasibility studies and for local extension or reinforcement of a distribution system. As a design tool, it is used for the sizing of mains and the location of reservoirs and pumping stations. As an operational tool, it can be used to identify constraints in the system and poor operational practices - in real time, to monitor and control system operations.

We have assisted many clients in building and modelling the water supply network of its systems. Our experience spans the entire regime from planning to design to addressing operational constraints.

Our approach to projects undertaken is to work closely with client staff to ensure full knowledge sharing. In a two way process, this enhances our understanding of the system required and improves utilisation of the final model.

Our involvement in projects has assisted the client in identifying optimal solutions that range from resolving capacity constraints in existing systems, to assessing the impact of network extensions as well as in the design of new systems.

We have followed client mandates to deliver their requested objectives for:

  • Supporting the client through assessing the potential impact of new developments on the water network
  • Modelling pipeline and pump systems to meet the specified demand design horizon
  • Investigating options for supplying water to a new water treatment works;
  • Modelling the increase in raw pumping and delivery capacity to meet the future deployable output
  • Modelling pipeline duplication and cross connections to ensure security of supply to enable shutdown and cleansing of new and existing mains
  • Impact assessment of climate change on water supply
