Northern Ireland Water Service Case Study

Customer Name:Northern Ireland Water Service


The Problem

Northern Ireland Water provides water and sewerage services to 1.8million people daily across Northern Ireland. In order to deliver their service they require a huge system of pipes, pumping stations, water treatment works and reservoirs. NI Water operates 26,700km of water mains and 15,200km of sewers all of which were maintained via paper records and maps.

NI Water required skilled personnel who could assist NI Water on the implementation and completion of a series of GIS related projects.

What We Did

Mallon Technology contracted a team of highly experienced staff to work under the instruction of NI Water’s staff to ensure that a series of projects were completed quickly and efficiently. Projects included:

  • The provision of Mallon Technology's skilled GIS staff for the purpose of capturing the water and sewer network data onto NI Water's GIS system from historical archives
  • Updating and amending the existing digital network and addition of new developments and assets to the existing network
  • Assessing and correcting anomalies and snags in digital records and site surveys
  • The provision of skilled GIS personnel to the Major Incident Planning Team for the preparation of contingency plans for major incidents, modelling GIS techniques to illustrate the importance of information and how information on priority customers and affected areas in a major incident could be gathered quickly
