Increasing water supply thru NRW
In the late 1990s, the city of Bangkok was losing about 40 percent of water production. To reduce the losses and meet demand from a growing population, the Metropolitan Waterworks Authority (MWA) hired contractors to reduce non-revenue water (NRW) under performance-based contracts (PBCs), increasing the water supply to the city’s six million inhabitants. This case study showcases this project.
