Prediction of discolouration
in distribution systems (PODDS)

For over 100 years water companies have been providing customers with clean, clear and safe to drink water. Yet, discolouration and other water quality issues can occur due to organic and non-organic material accumulating on pipe walls.

PODDS is an innovative approach which uses hydraulics to safely manage pipe performance and remove accumulated discolouration material.
