Linking Supply with Demand in Water Distribution Systems

Linking Supply with Demand in Water Distribution Systems

You've built your water supply capacity ... now you need to store it and get it to your customers when they need it. Burns & McDonnell has been designing water distribution systems across the country for more than 100 years.

You've gone to great lengths to develop water sources and treat the water to high quality. Now you need to deliver it.

But it's not a simple proposition. Dealing with system growth due to evolving development plans while replacing old or inadequate water mains can make achieving the goal of a cost-effective solution a complex and difficult task.

Water Distribution That Grows with the Community

Burns & McDonnell can help you evaluate your distribution system, determine its strengths and weaknesses and predict when and where additional pipeline, storage and pump station capacity is required to minimize rate impacts. We can also address hydraulic and water quality problems, improve pressures and fire flow, and make sure your system can meet peak hour demands. Your solution will be integrated into your distribution system model.

Burns & McDonnell also provides implementation assistance through permitting, design, construction, startup and operations.
