Water Demand Management
IMPLEMENTING WATER DEMAND MANAGEMENT and WATER CONSERVATION
The first and essential step in implementing Water Demand Management or Water Conservation is reliable measurements. Water measurement is N&Z’s core business.
Water Measurement is the Priority – Because You Can Only Manage What You Can Measure
PRIORITY MEASUREMENTS for WATER DEMAND MANAGEMENT and WATER CONSERVATION:
- Water flow: water sources; throughout the distribution network at various levels; waste water; water treatment plants.
- Water losses.
- Non-metered water.
- Identifying faulty measuring.
- Levels of water resources such as rivers, dams, lakes, boreholes and reservoirs.
- Water quality measurement, especially pH, conductivity, turbidity, chlorine and ammonia.
N&Z SUPPLIES STANDARD MEASUREMENT SOLUTIONS for IMPLEMENTING WATER DEMAND MANAGEMENT and WATER CONSERVATION:
- Automatic Flow Meter Reading using battery powered flow meters, or Smart loggers attached to existing mechanical or other meters.
- WaMSS Scada system processes flow measurements and provides the following information for your reporting, management and planning requirements:
- Flow totals
- Flow trends
- Line pressure
- Water loss reports
- IWA Water Balance
- Reservoir Level trends
This information is supplied to you by emailed reports, on your Android cell phone or by case-by-case analysis.
- Metering of open channels and partially filled pipes.
- Insertion flow meters for quick installations without stopping the water flow and emptying the pipe.
- Clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters for permanent installations, flow surveys and for checking the accuracy of existing flow meters.
- Examining flow trends enables you to identify areas of high water loss.
- Examining flow trends enables you to identify pipe bursts.
- Water quality measurement, including pH, conductivity, turbidity, chlorine and ammonia
N&Z can assist your implementation program.
Water Conservation and Water Demand Management are challenging but essential operations. In our country we simply have to use water efficiently, distribute it efficiently and minimise the loss or waste of water through efficient and effective control of the supply, the infrastructure and demand for water.
