Water Transmission & Distribution

Share on:

Aging infrastructure across many utility areas is causing increasing stress on an already limited capacity system. Using modelling tools, we can strategically plan how to efficiently maintain supply to customers to reduce upgrades and programme pipe upgrades to cause least disruption.

We share a strong commitment to working in partnership with you. That way, you can fully understand how your water systems work. Our engineers, scientists and ecologists address sustainability, water loss reduction and water efficiency improvements.

Services:

  • Sustainably managing water resources and integrating urban water management – to enable your customers to get most benefit by reduced capital outlays and reduced rate increases
  • Undertaking network planning – to help implement and expand reticulation networks effectively
  • Drought response planning – so that  you are prepared for crucial planning, management and sustainable use of water in times of stress
  • Using an impressive set of analytical and water pipeline design tools – to deliver thousands of kilometres of pipelines (100 mm to over 3000 mm in diameter) in myriad terrains and pressure conditions to ensure optimum sizing and materials for the correct situation
  • Designing and delivering pump stations with flows from 1 to over 40,000 litres per second and lifts of more than 1000 m and challenging complexity, through advanced electrical and mechanical technology
  • Helping clients to reduce capital expenditure – by optimising storage in varying sizes, shapes and construction materials (concrete, steel, membranes), including ground level storage, elevated towers, standpipe storage and turkey’s nest storage
  • Providing water hammer analysis – to reduce potential wear and tear to pipelines that can result in leaks/major bursts and disruption to customers
  • Designing water intakes, including still-water dam intakes, run-of-river intakes in mountain streams and river-bed intakes – to enable compliance with abstraction licences
  • Providing groundwater solutions, including all groundwater abstraction problems, yield assessments, bore development and borehole pumping and treatment
  • Rehabilitating/replacing existing water mains, through trenchless technology group solutions for efficient management of these assets
  • Providing project management services to enable clients to more effectively manage their water businesses
