Operators of water or wastewater utilities are required to provide reliable and affordable services, while complying with in increasing number of government regulations and ensuring the sustainability of their operations.
Water utilities require more efficient methods of engineering, optimization of energy supply, and contextualized compliance monitoring as they seek to expand availability of water to the general population at an affordable price.
AVEVA’s extensive and innovative software capabilities facilitate companies to perform their work better, faster, less expensively, and greener, putting them on the fast track to operational excellence.

Challenges for drinking water operations include managing a large network of geographically distributed assets, providing reliable monitoring and control of pump stations, dealing with aging infrastructure, managing operational and energy costs, and providing field personnel with information when they need it, wherever they are, and on whatever device they have at their disposal.
Reliability of service, avoiding sewage overflows, managing aging and failing infrastructure, reliable control and monitoring of distributed assets, minimizing energy usage, and regulatory compliance are typical challenges for wastewater networks.
Complying with ever-evolving regulatory standards, dealing with aging infrastructure, and managing operating costs – including labour, energy, and chemicals – are challenges water operations face in the pursuit to deliver reliable, affordable, high quality water and services in a secure and sustainable way.
Protecting the environment, complying with regulatory standards, avoiding sewage overflows and penalties, and providing a reliable, inexpensive service that produces clean water that’s safe to dispose or reclaim are some of the core challenges facing wastewater treatment operations.
Some of the common challenges in water network management include maintaining existing (usually ageing) infrastructure, expanding asset lifecycles, securing water supply in terms of quantity and quality, dealing with severe weather events (droughts and flooding), meeting stringent regulatory compliance needs, energy and carbon efficiency, and increasing workforce productivity and effectiveness. In addition, the need to continually raise the bar of customer service quality is driving smarter behaviour forecasting that enables operators to better understand the impact of planned (proactive) and unplanned (reactive) events through real-time network, and be warned of critical situations in the network so that immediate actions to prevent or mitigate service disruptions can be taken with enough lead time.
