Water Distribution Systems
The creation of a water distribution system or water network model is an established way to assess the performance of water systems and identify where improvements might be needed.
The important factors in measuring whether a water distribution system is working well for its customers are: water quality, water pressure and the incidence of interruptions to supply.
The Waterco team has considerable experience in water network modelling, as it has evolved from the original non-graphical methods to the current ‘all mains models.’
Efficient and accurate water network models are only possible if the base data used to build them is of high quality, and so the accuracy of the monitoring equipment is a critical factor as is the verification of the model using field measured data. The availability of the data and its quality can also have considerable bearing on timescales and therefore cost.
