Developing a water management plan for the city of Olomouc

Urban water infrastructure development using software reconstruction modelling

Olomouc is a city in Moravia, in the east of the Czech Republic. It is the sixth largest city in the state and has a population of about 102,000. The city of Olomouc has been constantly examining new methods to improve the way things are run. To support the city’s development plan, the municipality of Olomouc—which is responsible for its water network—needed to look for means to enhance the water management system. As the city’s trusted advisor in water infrastructure planning, we were approached to help prepare an overview of Olomouc’s current and future water supply stages, sewer networks and open channel networks.
