Measure: RedundantAssetsAndInfrastructures


Constructions of redundant infrastructures and assets along the whole water supply chain. Thus the failure of one component can, at least partially, be compensated by the respective redundant asset. The aim is to ensure a constant supply of water with adequate quantity, quality and pressure.


Redundant infrastructures could exist in the water extraction (wells, river extractions, reservoir extractions, spring water), water treatment infrastructures (filtration, adsorption, aeration, sedimentation, softening), water storage (tanks), water distribution (main pipes, distribution pipes, pressure boosting station) or similar infrastructures. Another kind of redundancy implementation that might make sense is the cooperation with other suppliers e.g. with neighbouring municipalities in supply networks.
