Flood protection & resilience
Our role is to plan, design, manage and engineer communities that thrive – an impossible mission without effective flood protection and resilience. As the climate changes, it is more important than ever that our towns and cities can adapt to extreme weather, such as frequent heavy rainfall.
We help communities predict, prepare for and mitigate flooding, using digital solutions.
The digital tools we develop harness the latest technology such as machine learning to solve the most complex problems.
The vast amount of data we have – on everything from where water flows and how it needs to be treated to what tomorrow’s needs will be – enables us to provide deep insight.
Whether we’re supporting funding and planning decisions, predicting flood levels, measuring the resilience of drainage or assisting with stakeholder engagement, technology plays a key role.
WSP works collaboratively with utilities to implement the least costly, most innovative testing technologies to determine the health of assets and accurately predict their remaining life. WSP acutely understand the benefits and limitations of the numerous condition assessment technologies currently on the market. We strive to learn and adapt to the emerging technologies becoming available to the wide range of water and wastewater pipe materials in service.
Our independence from any one technology provider allows us to review your needs at a detailed level and make recommendations on a fit for purpose solution. Our key focus is to then provide a prudent and efficient asset renewals program based on your accepted risk profile and budget.
WSP provides comprehensive services to ensure the successful management of your water systems, including advisory, detailed analysis, system design and project
management. By using sensors to link data from the field we can help construct accurate hydraulic models, perform online simulations and accurately manage future demands.
