New Guidance Addresses Water Losses in Public Systems

EPA document shares information on flexible tools and techniques to help systems tailor a program to meet water loss prevention needs and maintain infrastructure.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is releasing the "Control and Mitigation of Drinking Water Losses in Distribution Systems" guidance document. This guidance provides information on flexible tools and techniques that may help the public water system (PWS) tailor a program to meet its water loss prevention needs and maintain its infrastructure to deliver clean, safe drinking water to customers.

A successful water loss prevention program will help the PWS balance use of its resources to address the financial and personnel demands of economic restrictions, water availability, population and climate changes, regulatory requirements, operational costs, and public and environmental stewardship.

Interested parties may download electronic versions of the guidance document at EPA's website.

Hard copies (Document No. EPA 816-R-10-019) are available by contacting the Water Resource Center at 202.566.1729 or the National Service Center for Environmental Publication at 1.800.490.9198.
