The WAND Water Utilities Taxonomy - Next in the Utilities Suite

The next taxonomy in our Utilities Suite is the WAND Water Utilities Taxonomy.

Water utilities provide one of the more important requirements in our daily life - clean, safe, reliable water.  To achieve that, there are many steps and processes involved from the source to the tap. 

In the new WAND Water Utilities Taxonomy there is a foundation of 583 terms and 276 synonyms related to that process - beginning at the water source, moving through the utility infrastructure, and ending with clean, deliverable water. 

This taxonomy also includes terms relating to Water Systems, Water Distribution, and Water Quality, Water Utility Metrics, Water Resource Management, and Maintenance and ConstructionOther top level terms in the taxonomy are Associations and Organizations, Forms, and Standards and Guidelines.
Those terms can be customized to fit the needs of any Water Utility Company.
The WAND Water Utilities Taxonomy is designed to provide terms specific to water utility companies and should be used in conjunction with the WAND Utilities Taxonomy.  Also, watch for our soon-to-be released WAND Wastewater Utilities Taxonomy  in the suite of Utilities Taxonomies.   It will be the perfect companion taxonomy for any company that provides both water and wastewater services to their customers.

For municipalities that also provide gas and electricity to their customers we have the WAND Gas Utilities Taxonomy and the WAND Electric Utilities Taxonomy to round out the Utilities Suite.

As with all WAND Taxonomies, the WAND Water Utilities Taxonomy is available separately or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
