09:30 – 11:00: Session 5: “WATER LOSS MANAGEMENT & INTERMITTENT SUPPLY” Chair: Jurica Kovac, IWA WLSG, Aqua Libera, HR


Leakage management is a key activity for each water utility. This session will introduce the basics of IWA best practice methodology for efficient leakage management and some Italian and international successful case studies to stimulate water utilities to also achieve similar results. In addition, as intermittent water supply (IWS) is still a major problem in some parts of Italy, 'Best practice' recommendations will be presented for Improving the Level of Service in case of IWS including: infrastructure renewal, Pressure management to improve IWS regimes, Training and capacity building programs as well as Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for each supply regime.

11:30 – 13:00: Session 6: "LEAKAGE CONTROL AND MONITORING & ASSET MANAGEMENT” Chair: Stuart Trow, IWA WLSG, UK


To maintain a low level of leakage is fundamental to build and operate a pressure, flow and leakage monitoring system and to develop a sustainable asset management strategy. This session will present best practices and case studies in leakage control and monitoring as well as tools for pressure management, leakage monitoring and asset management.
