AquaCiTY: Smart Regulations

AquaCiTY facilitates the development, monitoring and enforcement of regulations that promote water efficiency, conservation, and resilience, such as building codes, building regulations, specifications, design standards that require water-efficient fixtures and water recycling practices.

AquaCiTY: Water Pricing

AquaCiTY facilitates implementing water pricing mechanisms that reflect the true cost of water and encourage conservation while ensuring equitable access to essential water services.

AquaCiTY: ESG and Water Neutrality

AquaCiTY helps facilitate the setting, monitoring, and delivery of ESG targets. It also helps deliver water neutrality, water offsetting, and water positive initiatives. Having this information readily available and consumable in smart cities is critical to delivering water resilience, demonstrating how environmental standards are being met and the corporate commitment to water and the environment. 

 AquaCiTY: Spatial GIS  Water Management 

 

AquaCiTY is GIS-based spatial software that allows for spatial analysis and visualisation of water-related data in the context of land use, infrastructure, and environmental factors. It enables users to assess the impacts of town planning, land use changes on water resources and plan infrastructure developments accordingly, fostering collaboration among various stakeholders (municipal & water services) and sectors.

AquaCiTY: Specification Design

AquaCiTY facilitates the design, specification use of algorithms to meet specific water efficiency and/or recycling targets. It monitors how the specified design standard is implemented and achieved in water supply, wastewater treatment, greywater recycling and reuse. Providing prompts for better utility and maximising greywater recycling and re-use.

 

AquaCiTY: Resource Recovery and Reuse

 

Implementing technologies for wastewater treatment and reuse, such as advanced purification techniques and decentralised treatment systems, to recover valuable resources like nutrients and energy from wastewater.

AquaCiTY: Closed-Loop Systems

 

Designing water infrastructure and processes with circular principles in mind, such as capturing and reusing stormwater, recycling greywater for non-potable uses, and promoting water-efficient industrial processes to minimise waterwaste.

AquaCiTY: Circular Business Models

 

Encouraging businesses to adopt circular business models that prioritise resource efficiency, waste reduction and incentivising practices like product redesign, remanufacturing, and material recycling to minimise water footprint and environmental impact.
