Management of water losses in drinking water supply system
WATERLOSS is a project that is being implemented within the framework of the MED Operational Programme. The partnership consists of organizations from
WATERLOSS follows the EU Water Framework Directive to develop an integrated and sustainable water management policy, and to implement appropriate measures ensuring the conservation of water resources of sufficient quality. The project focuses on the integration of water loss reduction principles in the management plans of drinking water authorities, with particular attention to MED countries where water scarcity and low quality have become major issues during the last years. WATERLOSS will assist regional actors to face the emerging issues of water management and shortage that came up recently as a result of long droughts in many Mediterranean territories.
