It sounds simple. Send water from its source to where it is needed. Realistically however, water conveyance involves sending specific quantities of raw water via water “highways” (pipelines, canals, levees) to water treatment and filtration facilities and pumping stations before entering finished water distribution systems. EETS has twenty five years of experience in water conveyance and pumping facilities and has worked on numerous projects.
