Damian Crawford, head of smart networks & leakage at Stantec, discusses how becoming data-rich and knowledge-smart can help the industry meet AMP7 leakage targets

The UK water industry is at a crossroads. Never before has it been under such political and regulatory scrutiny, leaving water companies with two clear options going forward: either carry out damage limitation or embrace the challenges and innovate.

Ofwat has set very challenging expectations, as most of the industry is required to reduce leakage by 15% or more by 2025. If this challenge was not enough, Ofwat has made it clear following PR19 draft determination, that the industry must achieve its leakage targets for little-to-no extra money or face significant penalties.

The industry needs to think differently; to think smarter with the focus being on network asset health, customer side leakage management and smart water networks says Stantec’s head of smart networks & leakage Damian Crawford.

In this WWT Magazine article, Damian discusses how becoming data-rich and knowledge-smart can help the industry meet AMP7 leakage targets.
