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.
Research within the water supply from source to tap research theme of the Water Innovation and Research Centre (WIRC) @ Bath 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.
