Data collection and monitoring

Providing reliable information for management and planning

Today, municipalities and water utilities are facing many challenges. They have to cope with the impacts of rapid urbanisation, climate change and aging infrastructure. With increased pressure on water systems, various issues arise such as sewage overflows, rain-related inflow and infiltration, water leakage and decreasing treatment capacity. Addressing these issues requires having accurate information on the systems. This allows for complete understanding and tackling of the problem. On aging infrastructure, the information available is generally unreliable or outdated. This makes planning and management very difficult. It is therefore crucial to upgrade and properly calibrate the data collection and monitoring system. With dependable and accurate information, you'll be able to make informed decisions on how to best address the challenges you face.


  • Coping with the impacts of rapid urbanisation, climate change and aging infrastructure
  • Dealing with inaccurate or outdated information and lack of proper planning tools
  • Alleviating increased energy consumption and treatment costs
  • Coping with decreased system capacity
  • Meeting stricter environmental regulations
