Water Networks: Reduce environmental impact - short term and long term

How can the UK water industry meet changing customer demands and improve environmental performance whilst maintaining an aging infrastructure? Location information is critical.

Reduce environmental impact

Long term reductions in environmental impact require a deep, network level view of cause and effect.  Short term reductions in environmental impact require the capacity for effective, rapid response.  Geographic information and tools help deliver both.

Control the risks

From sewage overflow to the risks of flooding and the dangers of pollution, GIS allows the multiple sources of catchment information to be managed and interpreted in relation to each other and the network.

Effective Incident response
Ensure faster incident response by integrating all relevant information in a common operational picture for all agencies involved.  By bringing together the problem area (flooding, leakage, customers affected, property, infrastructure affected) together with response (field crews, water bowsers, emergency services) the right decisions come faster.

Build for the future
Spatial intelligence arms you with the foresight to locate facilities and manage maintenance so the environmental impact and risk of natural disasters is minimised.
