Regional Water Conservation Program

?In the year 2000 the SWP, covering a service area of 1.3 million people, implemented a program promoting a per capita reduction in water use by 1% per year for ten years. Implementation of the program consisted of various measures including but not limited to: low flush and low flow home utilities, and rebates to [...]

Water Loss Management Program

The aim of the WLMP was to support smaller Local Water Utilities (LWUs) in their efforts to reduce leakage from their drinking water distribution systems. The batching of projects under WLMP also allowed eligibility with federal government funding criteria. Specialist knowledge and equipment were provided to LWUs in order to help identify, develop and implement [...]

Reducing Water Losses in a Large Distribution Network

There is real pressure on the city to reduce and stabilize demand. To resolve the matter a number of measures were taken, these include: the replacement of water mains across the city, pressure management aimed at reducing night time pressures, active and passive leakage controls, continuous monitoring of reservoirs and towers, and other infrastructure upgrades. [...]

Water Demand Management Strategy

Key to managing demand has been facilitating behavioral change in water use and consumption. The campaign to manage demand in Singapore is known as the “3P approach” and encourages everyone (People, Public, Private) to take ownership of water resource management. Also central to this approach is the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme, which [...]

Water Demand Management Scheme

The action taken took the form of a comprehensive water demand management program with six goals in mind: reduce the high percentage of non-revenue water, reduce high static water pressures, reduce average daily demand, increase total revenue, provide constant and efficient service to consumers, and conserve water that was becoming increasingly scarce. At a project [...]

Reducing Business Risk through Municipal Leakage Reduction

The intervention to improve conditions involves a public-private partnership between several key players (industry, local government and funding agencies), and their attempt to reduce water risks, stress and costs, while increasing water supply to the municipality. This requires a high of buy-in from stakeholders, education and capacity building, repairs and reinvestment of audited ring-fenced savings [...]

Water Authority Conservation Program

The security of supply is dependent upon reducing per capita demand, in particular those arising from landscape irrigation and evaporative cooling which make up 60% of the total demand. Subsequently, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) instituted a number of aggressive water conservation programs from 2000 onwards that included monetary incentives, education and regulatory policies. [...]

Pressure Management in Municipalities

To tackle the problem, a pressure management system was installed to control the pressure of the incoming bulk water, allowing for a reduction of supplied water to Sebokeng and Evaton during off-peak periods with a consequent reduction in leakage. The project was constructed using labor-based methods and a high level of stakeholder consultation to ensure [...]

Leakage Reduction in Primary Schools

The significance of the project is in its simplicity and cost-effectiveness, if only because it can be easily replicated at thousands of other schools and public buildings leading to huge water savings. More significantly, much of the “wasted” water that was targeted by this type of project would otherwise be lost to evaporation and evapotranspiration [...]

Leakage Reduction in a City

In 2008 a joint venture of Acwa Power and Suez Environment were awarded a seven-year water services management contract, under which a number of measures have been implemented to reduce unaccounted for water. The project was divided into two pilot stages, the first targeting the implementation of Pressure Regulating Valves in 16 district zones, and [...]
