  • The water sector has experienced greater penetration of information technology in network management practices in the past few years. Most countries in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region have taken key steps to build new treatment capacity, reduce water losses, improve revenue collection, deploy advanced technologies and rehabilitate old pipelines.
  • Quite a few water utilities have launched projects deploying advanced flow and pressure management systems, leak detection devices, and asset management systems. Supervisory control and data acquisition systems, geographic information systems, satellite surveillance and remote sensors, etc. are also being deployed across the APAC region for monitoring consumption levels, as well as distribution and treatment systems.
  • There is also increased emphasis on building smart water supply infrastructure with uninterrupted water supply, centralised operation and control, and recycling and reuse of wastewater. Smart water meter deployment has also increased significantly as an effective means of cutting down non-revenue water.
  • Countries such as Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Japan, Australia, India and Sri Lankahave engaged private entities to improve water supply management. This has resulted in some noteworthy improvements in operational performance, such as reduction in water losses, expansion of the customer base and improvement in billing and revenue collection mechanisms.
  • Going forward, as most governments across the APAC region strive to improve infrastructure facilities to meet the increasing demand for water, better technologies and processes are likely to be developed. There has to be an acceleration in the process of adding capacity and improving efficiency through the adoption of new technology and best practices. Moreover, a pragmatic approach is necessary for rationalising user charges. Greater private sector participationin O&M of assets will be fundamental. There also needs to be greater emphasis on recycling wastewater.
  • The mission of this conference is to examine the state of water network management in the APAC region with a focus on strategies and solutions for minimising NRW and improving service delivery. The conference will also discuss noteworthy initiatives/best practices, highlight upcoming opportunities, as well as showcase the latest technologies.
