The water- and subsoil- related expertise of NUS and Deltares covers a broad area. This enables us to do research, provide training and carry out specialist consultancy.
Water in urban areas is often sourced from man-made reservoirs or intensive managed water bodies. Besides providing potable water, reservoirs, lakes, canals and rivers provide several other functions, such as recreation opportunities and water storage for flood control. Different functions have different, often conflicting, requirements regarding water quality and quantity.
