Developer Service Enquiries

One of the main uses for network models, is to perform developer service enquiries.  Water companies use models to understand the impact of potential new developments on the existing water infrastructure.  Where a development is likely to negatively affect the existing customers on a network, measures can be taken to upgrade the network to cope with the increase in demand.  This allows the water company to carefully manage growth on their network, working with local councils to steer planning, and ensuring any improvement costs are shared with the developer.
