This involves the division of an entire water network into homogeneous districts, and therefore into smaller areas.

The principle is closely associated with the phrase “DIVIDE ET IMPERA”, i.e. divide the problem into smaller problems to manage them more easily.

What does the division of networks into districts consist of?

It consists of dividing the network into several areas in as uniform a manner as possible.

The purpose is to improve the management and maintenance of a water network or gas or other utility network.


The division of water networks into districts in the case of an aqueduct

The division into districts can be carried out on an existing or new aqueduct or complex of works used for the transfer of large quantities of water.


The purposes of division of a water network into districts 

The division into districts can be very useful in the case of utilities, since it makes it possible to:

  • identify and delimit areas with different piezometric levels
  • define measurement points for better detection of leaks 
  • facilitate determination of the water balance of the network
  • increase the amount of water metered to users
  • isolate portions of the network in case of breakages

The division of an aqueduct into districts is the most innovative and effective way to ensure total control over the water network and also guarantees constant monitoring in real time.


Aquaworks: the ideal tool for the water distribution network

Aquaworks is Fast's water distribution network management software. It has a collaborative architecture and its technology allows it to:

  • continuously monitor networks
  • be integrated into other systems (GIS, call centre, intervention team, SCADA, modelling/simulation, analytics)
  • provide high quality graphics
  • be installed and used anywhere
