Water System Master Planning
The development, expansion, upgrading, and operation of modern public water supply systems is a very complex and expensive endeavor.
Maintaining customer satisfaction and regulatory compliance, combined with escalating capital and operating costs, calls for detailed planning and scheduling efforts. One of the most critical tools for properly managing public water systems and anticipating costs is a Water System Master Plan. Environmental Partners has assisted numerous communities in developing effective Water System Master Plans, providing a comprehensive assessment of their water system(s) and a road map for the future. Common components include: supply and demand assessments; distribution system evaluations; storage assessments; regulatory compliance reviews; evaluation of guidelines and policies; and the development of a capital improvement plan.
Once a strategic implementation plan for the capital improvements is established, communities have an effective basis for cost planning, managing water rates, and addressing water system deficiencies.
