Kuching Water Board manages the largest potable water network in Kuching,
Malaysia, ensuring the quality and supply for a population of 736,000. The
firm proactively seeks and adapts advanced infrastructure technology. In
this instance, it used Bentley Water to create a single source of information
concerning the water network assets.
In addition to using Bentley Water and WaterGEMS, Kuching Water Board
enhanced its ability to leverage the software by providing several days
of focused training. The software has enabled the company to work more
collaboratively and with confidence that network assets provide reliable and
prompt information for decision making.
