Snippet of Interview:
Q. About you – what is your role and current activities?
Trying to make people aware of problems relating to perception of leakage management (use of inappropriate and misleading performance indicators (paper). Disseminating latest international advances in understanding and predicting the many benefits of smart pressure management in distribution systems, including reduction in burst frequency and extension of residual infrastructure life.
Q - Tell us about the conference and your participation
The Smart Water Systems conference covers a wide range of strategies and techniques, but some of the performance indicators used to monitor progress in NRW and leakage management are not only far from ’smart’, they actually fail to identify success. The paper 'Best Practice International approaches to monitoring improvements in NRW and Leakage management' will address this issue. The fundamental role of smart pressure management, as the foundation for efficiently managed distribution systems, is it still not widely recognised, and a Workshop on 30th April will outline the latest practical methods to identify situations where pressure management is reducing bursts and extending infrastructure life, with international case studies.
