Project Double Green
Small changes. Huge results.


WATER SYSTEM HYDRAULIC MODEL

CWL has contracted SSR Engineers to assist us in constructing a hydraulic model of our water system. The model will allow us to simulate major fire flows and demands from new development, which will help us to proactively and economically plan system improvements. We have been supplying information about our system to SSR over the last couple of months, and SSR confirmed in late November that the project is on schedule. The model should be completed in 2015.
