Water supply, Borehole, Protected Springs, and Shallow Well Drilling

Water supply, Borehole, Protected Springs, and Shallow Well Drilling

Water supply comprises of water harvesting, treatment and distribution for such uses as domestic consumption, animal use, industrial use and for irrigation-delivery of additional required water for proper plant growth, at all times

We focus on achieving both water and energy efficiency by undertaking optimal design of systems using proven design principles and criteria with the aid of technological packages suited for the purpose at hand. In the same spirit, our implementation plans focus on delivering quality workmanship

We offer and implement a diversity of technical solutions in water supply, including but not limited to:

  • Undertaking feasibility study, design and construction of gravity flow schemes
  • Design and installation of solar powered water supply systems
  • Construction and rehabilitation of protected springs 
  • Drilling of boreholes, shallow wells, and production wells 
  • Undertaking of hydrogeological surveys  
  • Rehabilitation and decontamination of shallow wells 
  • Supply of water testing kits 
  • Water quality testing and monitoring 
  • Supply of both surface and submersible water pumps 
  • Active leakage detection on distribution pipes, water audits, and NRW/water loss management 
  • Installation and maintenance of water property and water quality instrumentation 
  • Water infrastructure rehabilitation and optimal replacement 
  • Installation of reservoir tanks and various types of tank stands    

Hydro Concepts (U) Ltd is active in designing and implementation of water supply systems, undertaking specialized aspects of water supply of water loss control and management where we undertake:

Water Meter Management
  • Meter selection, testing, and auditing
  • Installation and management of prepaid meters
  • Sub-metering in case of multiple users on one master meter  i.e. for rentals and plazas including development and management of their billing systems
Asset Management

Our technical experts carefully study your water supply system with regards to water supply pressures, distribution pipe specifications, water quality and all system components, and guide you on the right infrastructure to use, with an overall aim of driving operational efficiency. We thus provide you with project lifecycle solutions to maximize asset values, from feasibility studies through to decommissioning. This enables you optimize operations and maximize plant asset values throughout the lifecycle of the facilities

Pressure Management Systems

In water supply systems experiencing high pressures, we undertake the process of identification of high pressure zones, size, install and offer sustainable pressure management solutions aimed at ensuring reduction in occurrence of bursts, reduction in flow rates of leakages and aversion of new leakages and bursts from occurring

Smart Underground Leakage Detection (NRW Equipment)

We have high precision instruments that can be used to detect and locate leakages on underground water transmission pipes. Our smart water leak detectors are highly accurate and sensitive, and as such suited for water leak surveying on plastic pipes. Our equipment digitally locates the leaks on underground pipes, thus enabling utilities reduce on NRW. These systems can detect leaks in pipes buried up to a depth of 1 metre, and are highly sensitive, reliable, accurate, and fast

Non Revenue Water (NRW) and Water Loss Management

Water is a fundamental human need, for “water is life.” To ensure that access to safe clean water is brought close to the people, governments and other actors invest in water supply systems (abstraction, treatment, pumping and distribution). These systems’ primary objective is to deliver all the water pumped into the distribution network to the end-user (consumer)

However, it is important to note, like in all systems, there are losses along the pumping-storage-distribution networks. Specifically for water supply systems, the collective name given to these losses is known as Non-Revenue Water

Non-Revenue Water (NRW) is defined as the difference in quantities of water pumped or introduced into the water distribution systems (case of gravity sources) with the sum of all the water registered by all consumer water meters supplied by that water supply system or all the water billed for that particular month

NRW is in other words that quantity of water from which economic benefit is not derived

Under our NRW and water loss management solutions, we offer multipronged solutions to address these shortcomings. We deploy high-end NRW equipment and water leak detectors, to accurately detect leaks on any underground water transmission pipes, thus enabling utilities keep leakage volumes to levels that are acceptable and economically viable (Affordable losses)

We offer technical consultancy aimed to address network losses, leakage detection, network leakage monitoring, billing abnormalities, and water meter management. We offer a complete water loss management plan that involves 4 stages. Firstly, we undertake thorough water audits to ascertain the nature of non-revenue water loss. Secondly, we undertake active location and repair of leaks on water mains and primary distribution pipes. Thirdly, we offer technical advisory on pressure management (based on determination of key locations in the water distribution system that are subject to excessive applied pressure and hence subject to potentially higher levels of leakage, hence advise on installation of pressure reducing valves at such points). Finally, our water audit reports inform infrastructure management such as replacement of water mains, and pumping stations, if very prone to breaks and leaks, and in case such replacement enables cost effective performance of the entire system

Water safety plans

As a mandatory requirement by the WHO, water systems meant for communities, health centres, schools MUST incorporate water safety plans. As such, all sections of the water supply plant from water abstraction, treatment, distribution, to the consumer, MUST be critically analyzed to foresee likely risks that may compromise the quality of water at each point. These are then graded in terms of magnitude and likelihood of occurrence, and respective mitigation measures that can be implemented to maintain the quality of water, and monitoring guidelines

In order to guarantee sustainability of the quality of water, it is important to draw up a water safety plan, strictly monitor its implementation, routinely review and update it

A water safety plan entails compilation of a robust assessment of the likely risks that can compromise the microbial, chemical and physical quality of water, resultantly likely to cause public health concerns from catchment to the consumer chain

Because water supply systems vary greatly from each other in terms of characteristics such as catchment source, types and condition of assets, size, among other aspects, it is important that a specific water safety plan is prepared for each water supply system

We offer technical support to clients in development of tailor made water safety plans, to guarantee the sustainability of the quality of water. We enable you to identify, prioritize risks, and ensure appropriate control measures are in place to reduce these risks to an acceptable level

Energy efficiency in water supply systems where we undertake

We undertake energy audits and offer advisory services
