Global Water Stress: Not An Insurmountable Task
Global water stress is so serious that it is causing economic down turns, resulting in public discontent and causing an increase in opportunistic diseases. But at Water Offsets we consider that addressing it is not an insurmountable task. We have developed a matrix of innovative measures such as water neutrality, integrated infrastructure, and nature based solutions (green roofs/corridors) could be used to deliver water resilience from Latin and North America, to Europe, the United Kingdom, Asia and Africa.
Our ecosystem covers policy advice, technical design, and innovative technologies based on GIS design, mapping and monitoring systems. Including green infrastructure (city landscape, green roofs) and interactive water interventions tools. Using these tools we are delivering some of Europe's first water neutral communities with more than 3,000 homes, eco tourism sites and commercial endeavours already designed. Below is a summary of bespoke water infrastructure design blueprint for delivering water neutral developments.
The 5 I's Ultimate Water Blueprint
Traditional water supply systems are continuously overwhelmed by population growth, significant pipe leaks, ever growing infrastructure costs, river pollution incidents, droughts and flooding. Resulting in acute water shortages, perennial water stress and poor sanitation.
We are challenging this narrative, with an innovative systems approach to the provision of water supply to affected communities, cities and regions through our 5 I's Ultimate Water Blueprint.
For All Major Home Appliances
Consideration is made of the existing
hydrological (rivers, lakes, etc) and hydrogeological (springs, aquifers) features that affect water supply, water collection and transmission.
A detailed analysis of the landscape features and characteristics. Landscape cover and characteristics have a strong influence on the quality and quantum of water that is received by each catchment.
Including that which is available for use for public supply.
An analysis of the physical characteristics of the location using geospatial mapping and satellite imagery to capture topography, landforms, vegetative cover and runoff characteristics.
Steep topography can lead to rapid inundation during heavy rainfall periods. But can also provide an invaluable source of abundant amount of water that could be used for aquifer recharge or filling of strategic public supply dams.
We are delivering water resilient cities and communities with partners
and clients in many sectors around the world.
