WSS – Water Supply and Sanitation

Drought, climate change, population growth, urban-industrial development and aging water assets impact the availability of the essential resource: “WATER”. Water supply and sanitation projects are an integral part of a nation’s infrastructure and strongly influence many aspects of planning and development.

We provide all the necessary engineering services relating to the development and operation of these water assets, having a broad proficiency in hydraulic engineering.

We consider water implications across the entire development cycle, providing a complete perspective to enable efficient and effective designs. We identify issues in the early stages to optimize usage, spatial and master planning, delivering sustainable long-term solutions for communities.

Water resource use and availability in the Fucino plateau (Abruzzo,Italy)

The Fucino catchment (862 km²) is located to the east of Rome and is an important agricultural area for horticulture, cereals and fodder crops. The area has supported highly productive agricultural systems based on an abstraction of surface water and groundwater from public and private wells and a large system of irrigation and drainage canals. Over the last 20 years [...]

Preliminary study and project proposal for a lasting management plan for protection against floods and environmental rehabilitation of Dakar city

In the last decades, the intensive urbanisation of Dakar City, has determined several problems related with water resources management. In particular the hydraulic risk of the peri-urban areas called “le banlieux” has notably increased with catastrophic effects. In fact, since the 2005, the area has been subject to many floods that have caused serious damages and economic losses. In this [...]
