NON-REVENUE WATER PROGRAMS

COURSE IN NON-REVENUE WATER PROGRAMS FOR PLANNERS AND DECISION MAKERS IN WATER UTILITIES, CITIES AND COMPANIES

Purpose:

Water loss in the water distribution networks is of great concern for cities and utilities almost all over the world. When you calculate the physical loss of water using the Infrastructure Leakage Index (ILI), you will find that in Denmark actual loss is typically less than 1%. In many other countries in Europe the same figure is often well over 4% and even higher in the rest of the world. Also when it comes to the apparent loss you will find Denmark in the top 3 in the world.

Program objectives

By attending this training course in Denmark you will get vital information about NRW reduction programs and get live-demonstrations of how we have come this far by visits to water utilities in the country.

Who should attend
  • Three groups of staff need to pay attention to reduction on NRW to secure sustainable solutions:

    • CEO’s and top level management in order prioritize and channel funding towards investments in NRW-reduction
    • Planners and middle level management, who recommend interventions, decisions and actual solutions
    • Staff at operations and maintenance level, who identify leakages, carry out reparations and are responsible for daily maintenance of pumps, pipes and networks

    This course is targeting planners and middle level management and will ensure that they are able to assess the situation and identify key challenges and recommend the solutions that are sustainable for utilities, communities and the environment.

    Courses targeting other staff categories are also offered by us and our partners. Contact us if you are interested in this.
