CSA Architects and Engineers, San Juan, Puerto Rico
This project was commissioned by CSA Architects & Engineers in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The project team did research on the problems with Puerto Rico's water distribution system as well as on the computerized hydraulic model that the joint venture of CSA and CH2M Hill developed as part of an aqueduct plan for northern Puerto Rico. The team then did a cost/benefit analysis of updating and maintaining the model as a tool for the water utility to use in the future to improve their operations and customer service. We concluded that if the water utility adopts the model, its impact would result in a five-year savings of $144 million due to the reduction of unaccounted for water and labor costs.
