Water Resource Supply Projections

EkoSource is currently working with GeoTerraImage (GTI) to generate an application which uses satellite information to generate water resource projections. The service currently can estimate water resources surface areas across the SADC region. These are currently being converted into water volume estimates and will further be developed to provide an estimate of reliability of supply up to 12 months ahead.

Water ordering, water use and water balance online calculator

In most irrigation schemes and water user associations it is possible to save water by ensuring that the releases in a system meets the water requirements or water orders of specific water users. This prevents substantial operational wastage. EkoSource have developed a system which enables the capturing of water orders, water use and then doing water balances. This is the first step in setting up more effective water release calculations which EkoSource has implemented in a number of areas across South Africa. This system also performs water balances enabling the identification of areas where water losses are occurring and identifying and rectifying problems efficiently.
