According to a United Nations declaration, the right to clean water has been a human right since July 2010. Contaminated drinking water continues to be the main reason for most illnesses. Although 87 percent of the world's population now has access to clean water, more than one billion people around the world still do not have enough clean water.

The field of drinking water supply is a "commitment to life" for GAUFF Engineering. With decades of practical experience to our name, we plan and implement water supply systems for rural and urban settlement structures and operate entire water supply systems in cities and developing regions around the globe.

Our Services


The drawing up of as-is documents calls for both historical and technical know-how, such as knowledge of earlier styles of building by the former Colonial powers, not to mention a high degree of cultural experience and state-of-the-art equipment that can be used to identify leaks, for instance. We are always happy to apply this expertise in the interest of our customers.


In our project countries, water production in the vast majority of cases means water taken from rivers. We have the experience needed to perform this kind of operation on site and to ensure smooth functioning for decades.


In addition to high-quality treatment, we focus on waterworks operation. Operations must run smoothly at all times and warrant a high level of quality.


Drinking water storage is a key aspect of planning. The storage tanks must be big enough to ensure independent supply for the entire population even over a long period of time.


Greater urban areas usually receive their water from waterworks that are located long distances away. This calls for a high degree of operational reliability, for instance, by monitoring transport pipes. This is a special focus of our projects.


In many countries, water distribution does not automatically mean that every house is connected to the supply grid. In cases like these, public taps can supply up to 2,000 inhabitants. We implement a balanced and future-enabled relationship between household connections and public taps.


Water supply operations are often caught up in the tension that exists between economic success and the necessity to supply the entire population with sufficient fresh drinking water. We can warrant balanced operations and sustainable supply.
