Urban water

Urbanisation – the challenge of the century

By 2015, the world is expected to have an urban population of nearly 4 billion – a sizeable challenge for urban water management. Infrastructure networks are expanding as we speak. Moreover, the impacts of climate change are inescapably dramatic in densely populated urban areas. Consequently, it has become crucial to manage water environments efficiently within cities – today and in the future. With our generalised and customised Integrated Urban Water Management solutions and software, we make this possible for you.

THE CHALLENGES

  • Meeting the increased demand for drinking water
  • Alleviating the greater threats to water quality
  • Increasing efficiency and reliability in water distribution
  • Reducing waste of energy and resources in treatment plant operations
  • Improving storm water and wastewater networks
  • Coping with higher flooding risks and greater adverse effects
  • Adapting to the impacts of climate change on urban waters
