Network Water Quality Management

Providing analysis, advice and solutions to help water utilities identify and act upon factors impacting water quality in the network.

One of the primary objectives for water utilities is to ensure the water distributed to customers is of the highest quality. Water treated in the UK is generally of exceptionally high quality, but ageing water distribution networks can often be the cause of issues that can affect water quality arriving at the consumer’s tap.

One of the ways that water quality performance is measured is by the number and frequency of discolouration contacts. Identifying the factors impacting water quality can sometimes be complex and can involve multiple variable causes including pipe materials, flow, hydraulic conditions, sedimentation and water chemistry.
