Many urban water and wastewater systems in the North East Water service area were initially constructed in the early to mid 20th Century. Since that time periods of rapid development have occurred in different towns meaning the existing systems have been augmented to meet demand.
Many of these systems now serviced by water and wastewater infrastructure towards or beyond its design life. The systems have been augmented with additions beyond the original system intent over time. A significant number of the regions rural urban areas are now experiencing unprecedented residential development on the outskirts of the townships. The aging infrastructure will not have the capacity or residual asset life to support further augmentation.
North East Water requires support beyond its own capability / capacity to systematically review, define, justify, design and implement a programme of engineering works:
· Identify condition and age of critical infrastructure
· Model system capacity , then identify options to augment the existing system or build new critical infrastructure to service the regions centres in the short, medium and long term (50 year outlook).
· Contribute to the development of a prioritised programme of works to service each town into the future based upon a 5–10–25 and 50 year outlook (approximately 2072).
· Develop Preliminary Designs of System Components to support investment decisions.
