Russell Island Water Age Assessment

Redland Water

Redland, Queensland

Scope of Services
The 2014 Redland City Council (RCC) Drinking Water Quality Management Plan (DWQMP) identified a number of non-utilised water supply mains on Russell Island. These mains can create a public health risk if brought into service. Engeny was commissioned to:

  • develop a new hydraulic network model for the RCC system
  • undertake a detailed water age assessment of the Russell Island reticulation network and identify the areas with high water age
  • use the outcomes of the water age assessment to inform mitigation actions and develop risk management recommendations.
