Optioneering Helps MidCoast Water Transform Gloucester Water Network Into A Reliable, Efficient System

MidCoast Water delivers water and sewerage services to 40,000 households in the Manning, Great Lakes, and Gloucester communities of New South Wales in Australia. It also supplies 8 billion liters of water a year to Karuah in the south, Crowdy Head in the north, and Gloucester in the west.

In 2011, MidCoast Water accepted responsibility for the operation of the aging water and sewer networks in the Gloucester Shire Council area. The Gloucester water distribution network, parts of which date back to 1914, involves three reservoirs and seven booster pumps. Residents experienced water pressure fluctuations as the entire water system relied on booster pumps, which switched on and off based on downstream pressures.
