Critical Valve Strategy

Strategic valves play a key role in the operability and resilience of the water network. From planned operational and capital maintenance, to reactive repair and network management, reliable valve operation is essential.

We have recently produced a critical valve strategy and implementation plan for one of Australia’s leading water authorities, providing them with an integrated risk-based approach to managing some of their most important assets. This strategy will allow the client to fully understand asset risk; from service impact to damage impact and cost of failure, they can now prioritise preventive maintenance and renewal in an effective and sustainable manner. A full case study will follow shortly.
