To have a management system gathering all the environmental parameters and the specific conditions of EMASESA.
EMASESA, the Seville water supply and sanitation company, started its activity on the 23rd October 1974 when it was established by the Council of Seville as a municipal company, the company’s name changed to Metropolitan on 8th May 2007.
It manages the direct supply of drinking water in Seville and the towns of Camas, Dos Hermanas, Alcalá de Guadaíra, Mairena de Alcor, San Juan de Aznalfarache, Coria del Río, La Puebla del Río, Alcalá del Río, La Rinconada, El Garrobo y El Ronquillo. It also supplies raw water, untreated, to 26 towns located in the Seville area of Aljarafe and to Guillena-Las Pajanosas.
It is also responsible for the public service of sewage system and purification in Seville, Alcalá de Guadaíra, Camas, La Rinconada, San Juan de Aznalfarache, Coria del Río, La Puebla del Río, Alcalá del Río, Mairena del Alcor, Dos Hermanas and El Ronquillo.
Spain suffers a cyclical alternation of dry and wet periods, during the last 50 years, its consequences had special incidence in Andalusia, mainly in the Mediterranean area. The last significant drought registered began in 2005 (until 2008) and forced the adoption of restrictive measures.
There are numerous drought indicators for applications, but few management systems of future demand adapted to the particular situation of each supply system.
Given the repercussion and consequences of these situations, both in ecosystems and life quality of people, EMASESA has for its water management a Water Security Plan and a Drought Plan in accordance with its water management. A correct application of these plans requires a constant revision and update depending on the environmental variations
produced by the climate change, and the specific circumstances of each supply.
DataThe challenge has the following sample datasets available for download
To have a management system gathering all the environmental parameters and the specific conditions of EMASESA, geographical situation of the population supplied, geographical situation of the supply dams, climatology and rainfall, consumption of customers and volume of operations, etc.
This management system will support the Water Security Plan and Drought Plan in its application by providing updated information about the supply situation and allowing this way an anticipated decision making. Likewise, it will allow the implementation of a Water Footprint management system.
