Sustainability, cost efficiency, safety and asset longevity are the key considerations influencing the design, delivery and maintenance of bulk water infrastructure and dams. Water, perhaps more than any other resource, is increasingly under the public eye. Bulk water supply is fundamental to virtually all human development activity, from urban and rural human settlement through mining, industrial and agricultural development. Nam Theun 2 Hydroelectric Project Laos Changing global attitudes regarding climate change and urbanisation have resulted in social and political influences that affect the way bulk water infrastructure and dams are planned and maintained. Increasingly, asset longevity is also a key issue, with the lifespan of dams and related infrastructure more commonly being increased through improved maintenance practices and extensive rehabilitation and upgrading works.
