NET - WAT

Thematic objective: B.4 Environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation
Priority: Priority B.4.1 Support sustainable initiatives aimed at finding innovative and technological solutions to increase water efficiency and encourage use of non-conventional water supply
Brief description of the project: Network for an efficient use of the water as public good. The development of advanced tools for the analysis of water distribution networks is the key element for its efficient and sustainable management. The progressive deterioration and the adoption of inadequate management strategies,due to hydraulic analyzes not consistent with the real functioning of systems, put at risk the economic and social value of today's infrastructure. The project addresses this issues.
Main objectives – issues to be addressed: The NET-WAT project is part of this scenario by addressing four main themes: 1. Experimental study of background water losses in relation to possible influencing factors; 2. Non-invasive maintenance of distribution systems; 3. development of an advanced network simulation model that allows the representation of backdrop water losses 4. Spreading a culture on the use of water as public good, which everyone should not waste
Expected results: Improvement of the functioning of the water distribution networks as key factor for water efficient and sustainable management
