Water & wastewater asset management

Mouchel works for the majority of the water and wastewater companies in the UK and has provided asset management services since their privatisation in 1989. Our industry leading capability puts clients in the driving seat when it comes to making complex investment decisions.

We combine in-depth understanding of regulatory and business requirements with the latest modelling and analytical skills to understand our clients’ needs and provide effective solutions. The breadth of our asset management capability is reflected in our status as an Endorsed Assessor for PAS 55 – the British Standards Institution for the optimal management of physical assets.

We have delivered many UK research projects through our long-standing involvement with UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR), including reports on 21st century sewerage and distribution systems and, most recently, the use of real-time system control on sewerage networks for ‘smarter operations’.

Our services span the whole water cycle incorporating built infrastructure and the wider water environment – encompassing water resources, water quality and flooding – and include:

Mouchel has helped to make asset management integral to the operation of modern water companies and we are proud to be a trusted partner with companies such as Severn Trent Water, where we have contributed to a step-change in managing sewerage assets, and South West Water, where our innovative approach to managing discolouration risk in drinking water has become ‘business as usual’.
