Research Project: The Future of Hydraulic Water Network Design to Manage Discolouration Risk

The overall project aim of this project (called Moving Material) is to improve understanding of particle behaviour that can help determine the likelihood of sedimentation in DWDS, thus allowing proactive management to decrease the risk of localised drinking water discolouration events. This research plans to investigate links between field data, laboratory studies, and modelling to improve understanding of sedimentation within DWDS. Finally, using improved insight of sedimentation, investigation of different distribution system hydraulic intervention strategies are planned to review potential pro-active management approaches to reduce discolouration risks to consumers.
