Network water quality management
The number and frequency of discolouration incidents is just one measure of water quality performance. Identifying which of the multiple variables are impacting water quality – pipe materials, flow, hydraulic conditions, sedimentation, or water chemistry, among others – can be complex.
By understanding and analysing these factors holistically across the network, water utilities can take proactive measures to safeguard and improve water quality and ensure customer satisfaction.
