Marketing Text This product fully satisfies the objectives stated at the outset of the project. The initial and basic task of the project was to assess and record current national practices on maintenance of water utility networks. Principles and rules were elicited and exchanged between the partners and a comparative study made. The outcome of this phase was important as it registered the similarities in practices and the advances that have been implemented in some of the countries involved. In addition to the partners in Greece, Italy, Turkey and Cyprus, the consortium was enlarged through the inclusion of a number of contributing partners in other European countries whose participation proved invaluable. Consequently, this report contains also material submitted by these contributing partners who report on maintenance procedures in other regions in Italy, as well as in Finland and the Netherlands.
The content of the current national practices reports included the following:
1. Basic information of the City and the Water Utility Network
2. Water Utility Company Profile
3. Water Consumption
4. Water Quality Issues
5. Current Maintenance Practices
6. Concluding Remarks and Recommendations
An outcome of this intensive cooperation was the development of a curriculum definition on a unified methodology on preventive maintenance of water distribution networks.
Target group Local water utilities, institutions of higher learning, public authorities and interested parties.
