Follow-up Water Loss Training Event Planned for February 2017
A follow-up Water Loss Training Event is planned for 23 and 24 February 2017 in Auckland. It will be similar to the February 2015 event but with the theory and training (basic through to advanced) on the first day. The second day will be more conference-like in format with presentations on the latest water loss technologies and equipment, and from water suppliers sharing their experiences in managing water losses. The training will cover calculating a water balance and performance indicators for real water losses.
With the introduction of the LGA non-financial performance measures, which includes reporting on real water losses, this event should be of interest to all water suppliers. The issues around performance indicators for non-revenue water and real water losses will be discussed and the problems with using percentages, which can result in unforeseen negative outcomes, will be highlighted. Setting appropriate targets is more interesting and complex than what it seems!
There will be a small expo by companies supporting the event. At this stage the following companies are confirmed: Deeco Services Ltd, Cla-Val Pacific Ltd, Arthur D. Riley & Co. Ltd, Detection Services Ltd, Jeff Booth Consulting Ltd and ABB Ltd. The venue will be The Holiday Inn, Mangere.
Richard Taylor, from Thomas Civil and Environmental Consultants, Auckland, is organising this event. Register at https://www.eventbrite.co.nz/e/water-loss-training-days-tickets-28173137613 or search for the event at www.eventbrite.co.nz
