Improving Efficiency and Sustainability through Effective Non-Revenue Water (NRW) Reduction

As populations grow and urbanisation increases, the demand for water rises, increasing the need for sustainable, pressurised water supplies. Unfortunately, a significant portion of available water resources is lost due to leakage, inefficiency, over-abstraction, and changing weather patterns.

By working with Crowder Consulting to reduce leakage and NRW, you will be able to optimise the water network and benefit from:

  • Resource conservation: Preserve precious water resources by minimising losses through leakage and inefficiency.
  • Energy efficiency: Reducing non-revenue water lowers the energy consumption required for water treatment and distribution.
  • Economic savings: Water utilities can substantially reduce operational costs by curbing non-revenue water, translating into lower water bills for consumers.
  • Enhanced sustainability: NRW reduction contributes to sustainable water management, aligning with environmental and conservation goals
  • Improved service: By reducing non-revenue water, network operators ensure consistent, pressurised water supply, meeting the increasing demands of growing populations and urbanisation.
