Logisticon builds surface water pilot for Dunea

Dunea is looking for new drinking water sources because their current system, consisting of two river water sources (Maas and Lek) with 80 km of pipelines towards the dunes, is becoming increasingly vulnerable. Pollution is lurking and prolonged dry periods mean there is little river water available for drinking water purposes. Besides, the long pipelines have to be removed increasingly to accommodate other plans, which makes them temporarily unavailable.

Dunea is looking for a mix of sources and techniques that will guarantee the supply of good and reliable drinking water under all kinds of circumstances. One of the possible solutions is the preparation of drinking water from the Valkenburgse Meer. This lake is fed with water from the Old Rhine. The quality of the water meets the requirements set by Dunea for a possible new drinking water source. A big advantage is that the Valkenburgse Meer is only 5 km away from the Berkheide infiltration area so the water cycle can be shortened. Before the decision can be made to actually use this Lake for the supply of drinking water, further research is needed regarding the quality and treatment of this water.

Logisticon was awarded a contract to realize a pilot installation for these purposes. During approximately 4 years research will be done with a pilot installation at the Valkenburgse Meer. The contract concerns the design, the construction and the maintenance of this pilot during its duration. After this period Logisticon will also be involved in the dismantling and removal of the pilot installation.
