Water Resources Zero-based Review

River and mountains

Project Highlights

This Zero-Based Review is investigating 3 opportunities:

  1. Service levels for Wastewater - determining how to optimize capital investment through a greater understanding of the appropriate levels of service to deliver for Wastewater.
  2. Review of capital delivery - how to ensure efficient and effective delivery of capital projects.
  3. Data management and analytics - what data management tool and techniques and analytics should be developed and used to support decision-making in the other two areas.

Scottish Water International (SWI) was the successful proponent and is currently developing business cases and recommendations for efficiency and effectiveness improvements. A presentation of results is expected in early Summer 2016.
