Huge amounts of money and time are being invested in reducing leakage in distribution networks worldwide. By comparison very little money or time is being spent looking at how we can measure and improve water quality. Why? This latest BreakOuts will explore if water quality measurement in distribution networks, as well as at the household level, needs to be given more emphasis and if so how do we do it?
