Utility Services Associates’ professional staff works closely with other industry professionals and manufacturers, creating new technology and developing new procedures and methods, to better serve the water industry.
Non revenue water (NRW) is water that has been produced and is “lost” before it reaches the customer. Losses can be real losses (through leaks, sometimes also referred to as physical losses) or apparent losses (for example through theft or metering inaccuracies). High levels of NRW are detrimental to the financial viability of water utilities, as well to the quality of water itself.
The International Water Association (IWA) has developed a detailed methodology to assess the various components of NRW. Accordingly NRW has the following components:
Unbilled authorized consumption
Apparent losses (water theft and metering inaccuracies)
Real losses (from transmission mains, storage facilities, distribution mains or service connections)
