  1. On December 4, 2019 – World Water Loss Day – organised by Aquabench, German Benchmarking Utilities met at Hessen Wasser in Germany for a Workshop with Joerg Koelbl about Water Losses in Transmission Systems – what a perfect date for such event! #worldwaterlossday

  2. Air Selangor has established our own specialist teams to actively detect leaks in our distribution system. These teams consist of 116 Leak Inspectors and 54 Leak Specialists. For the past 3 years since we carried out in-house NRW reduction programs, their achievement has helped us positively to reduce our NRW from 32.20% in 2016 to 28.70% in 2019.
    On the 7th October 2019, Air Selangor has taken another step by launching the campaign ‘Leak Finder Air Selangor’. In this campaign, all Air Selangor staff are encouraged to report any suspicious leak found during their daily walk around activities. To report the leak found, staffs has to call our Customer Service and provide a few specific information i.e. type of leaks and detail location. The objective of the campaign is to leverage on our 4000 plus staff count to help on sustainable NRW reduction efforts.
    In conjunction with the World Water Loss Day on the 4th December 2019, Air Selangor has taken further initiatives to raise awareness on the campaign.
    There are 3 main initiatives run by Air Selangor to support the World Water Loss Day as follows:
    1. The Roadshow – simultaneous presentation and engagement activities on ‘Leak Finder Air Selangor’ at Head Quarters and the 10 regions office on 4th Dec 2019.

    2. The WhatsApp and Email blast to all staff consisting message of ‘Leak Finder Air Selangor’ in order to encourage all staff to forward that message to their close family and friends to report any leak/burst and suspicious illegal connection to themselves. In short, all staff will be an Air Selangor agent to their family and friends. The WhatsApp blast also includes a catchy video illustrating a responsible public that upon encountering a leak suddenly realized that he has a friend in Air Selangor whom he can actually forward the leak info to.

    3. Encouraging all staff to join a Yammer group called NRW Leak Alert where the group members shared some interesting video, photos, write-up and related information such as types of leak, photos and videos of actual leak found via manual and advance leak detection equipment, guideline to report a leak and other continuous awareness material posting.

  9. Celebrating World Water Loss Day!

    The North Carolina Division of Water Infrastructure, in partnership with N.C. State University’s Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) and Cavanaugh, recently held a summit, “Advancing Water Loss Control and Improving System Viability: A Summit for NC’s Water Utilities” on November 13, 2019. This summit brought together participants from local and state governments, water associations, water utilities, private consulting, and academia to learn about water auditing through the lens of a pilot program as well as national-level efforts. The summit featured deep dives into data from the program to provide context for how the AWWA M36 methodology can directly benefit North Carolina’s utilities.

  10. El Grupo Especializado de Pérdidas de Agua (GEPA) de la Asociación Internacional del Agua (IWA, por sus siglas en inglés), está promoviendo el día de las pérdidas de agua a celebrarse el próximo 4 de diciembre, que además de la IWA tiene el respaldo de la AWWA. Es por esto que quisiera solicitar su ayuda para que las personas e instituciones del sector del agua de su país también se adhiera a esta iniciativa.
    El GEPA para esta ocasión ha creado un sitio web https://www.worldwaterlossday.org en el cual se espera cargar fotos, artículos o blogs de las actividades realizadas durante este día provenientes de cualquier persona o entidad vinculada con esta problemática. El material resultante lo pueden hacer llegar al del presidente del GEPA shamilton@hydrotec.co para cargar en la página web. Cualquier inquietud que tengan no duden en contactarnos.

    1. There will be two specific launch activities – one at the AWWA North Amercian Water Loss Conference and the other at the IWA Water and Development Congress. But you are most welcome to do your own with your friends!
