The extent of leaking infrastructure is directly proportional to the operating pressures within the network. The higher the pressures the greater the leaks. Advanced pressured management incorporates the creation of smaller measured DMA’s (District Metered Areas) and the constant monitoring and adjusting the operational pressures in an effort to reduce leaks, enhance the lifespan of the pipe network and associated infrastructure and ensure pressures at the critical point within the DMA is maintained in terms of the Client Charter of the MLC.
Advanced Pressure Management is by no means a simple task and herein lies our expertise and professionalism. UFP have spearheaded APM projects for the Department Water Affairs and City of Cape Town.
