‘A water supply company derives its right to exist from the trust the client puts in it’
For more than a century having a drinking water connection stands for health. The central treatment and distribution of drinking water continues to be the solution for various illnesses, as well as the most environment-friendly solution. Water supply companies derive their right to exist from the client’s trust in that supply. This asks for creative, technological solutions for designing an intelligent and future-proof water infrastructure, in which the water quality and continuity of supply are being maintained.

Drinking water infrastructure is capital intensive and has a long technical lifetime. Its design therefore requires insight into future developments such as urbanisation, client behaviour, water consumption, and climate change.
