The traditional approach to water supply and storm water infrastructure focuses on the development of more supply, based on a presumed need for new infrastructure. This includes the construction of new dams, reservoirs, tanks, reticulation systems and major water transfer schemes.
The need has arisen for an alternative approach as supply-sided solutions only postpone the inevitable. ‘Demand Management’ is a more sustainable approach where the outcome is to reduce the need for new supply infrastructure through measures such as:
Conservation-based tariff structures Effective water loss management Re-use of wastewater and creation of awareness
In order to optimize efficient and effective delivery of water to consumers at an affordable cost, accurate information about water distribution and consumption is critical. IMQS has developed software solutions that support the fulfilment of the following functions:
