We involved in bulk treated and raw water transfer schemes. Such schemes have been evaluated considering capital and operating costs, benefits, environmental constraints as well as operational, regional and political factors. Water supply projects undertaken vary widely and include;
    • Studies, designs and construction supervision.
    • Support to multi-disciplinary water sector projects with a typical emphasis on environmental improvements.
    • Operational studies.
    • Investment planning.
    • Training and technological transfer.
    • Project management.
    • Post-project technical audits.
    • Research, and
    • Environmental and impact assessments, base-line studies.

Know how to safely manage potential contaminants to protect water quality and learn how to conserve water with implementation of new technologies, increased efficiency of current water use, and adoption of cropping systems more tolerant of drought or limited water conditions.

To minimize the impact of insect and disease problems the importance of landscape diversity should be emphasized.
