On the 4th of December the world will celebrate the inaugural World Water Loss Day. Initiated by Gutermann and the IWA Water Loss Specialist Group, both IWA and AWWA have endorsed it. So on the 4th of December 2019 organisations, utilities, vendors and water executives around the world will be discussing, show-casing and presenting their achievements or solutions to fight water loss. The WWLD will be celebrated at North America Water Loss NAWL in Nashville USA (4-5 Dec) and at the IWA World Development Congress in Sri Lanka (1-5 Dec).
Globally water losses from drinking water supply networks amount to 346,000,000,000 liters per day!
If these water losses were reduced by only 30%, 800 million people could be supplied with already treated water!
The Water Loss Specialist Group of the International Water Association (IWA) has very recently established the World Water Loss Day to raise awareness!
