Bulk water

Getting water to where it needs to be

There’s a lot that goes into getting water from where it is, to the places where it needs to be.

Bulk water supply infrastructure, which includes dams, weirs, canals, pipelines and pump stations, are used for everyday and emergency situations, and include potable and non-potable delivery systems that ultimately help ensure a safe and reliable water supply to the intended users.

At Aurecon, we have over 80 years’ experience in developing bulk infrastructure systems for water, wastewater, irrigation, hydropower, and stormwater management. Our global capabilities in bulk water infrastructure design are complemented by our strengths in dam engineering, water resources management, water and wastewater treatment, and infrastructure advisory services.
