Water supply from source to tap

We are developing an integrated approach to water resource management, advanced water treatment and water supply systems to deliver drinking water in a robust and sustainable manner that complies with modern standards.

Water supply is one of the most important elements for health and well-being. Also, economic prosperity is dependent on the availability of high quality drinking water, as it is used in many manufacturing processes. High quality water supply is only possible with good quality and protected resources, reliable and robust treatment systems and well maintained distribution networks with minimal influence on water quality.

Our research explores:

  • demand forecasting
  • water supply network design
  • leakage reduction and prevention

We are also developing tools for evaluating the resilience and sustainability of the water supply network in the face of climate change.
