Future-Proof Water Infrastructures

Operational and strategic management of water supply and distribution systems

Participants of the IWA World Water Congress in Tokyo about the importance of working on future-proof water infrastructures.

Since water networks are among the infrastructures that are critical to the well-being and welfare of our societies, water utilities make great efforts to ensure their proper functioning. The introduction of sensors and ICT solutions in recent years greatly assists the utilities in this task, but it also adds new risks for the provision of water services.

Cost-effective and secure water supply increasingly calls for integrated tools that simulate a combination of physical and cyber domains.

The Future-Proof Water Infrastructures Community of Practice is dedicated to sharing new scientific and practical developments in the design and operation of the cyber-physical water infrastructure. Implementations in several reference projects are available for members of the Watershare platform.
