Water modeling is a technique to digitally simulate the water distribution systems used for cities. It helps municipal administrations and engineering firms to understand a range of characteristics of water networks.
Water/wastewater infrastructure is aging rapidly in most cities, and the growing population is only increasing the load on the crumbling water systems. Read about the tried and true 8 "I's" of asset management to see how you can tackle these challenges.
In part 2 of our Covid Impact series, Duncan Allen, Clean Water Hydraulic Modelling Team Leader at Scottish Water discusses how water usage patterns are changing, the steps they are taking to identify early warnings to ensure network resilience and some key findings for other modellers to consider.
