Intermittent Water Supply (IWS) is estimated to affect over a billion people globally. In areas with IWS, pipes are regularly drained and left without pressure between supply cycles, causing contamination, a consequent worsening of water quality and associated health risks.
The COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the importance of a reliable and 24/7 continuous water supply for public health. However, many utilities and regions of the World are challenged to achieve this.
This webinar will provide clarity on the water quality implications of IWS as well as explaining the importance of aiming for continuous 24/7 water supply, while recognising that this cannot be achieved overnight. It will provide real life examples of improving intermittent supply and transitioning towards continuous supply, with experiences taken from India and Sri Lanka.
Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of water networks.
