GWD, Prime­wa­ter launch bat­tle against NRW

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

GUAGUA— In line with the goal of pro­vid­ing qual­ity wa­ter sup­ply and ser­vices to the most num­ber of peo­ple, the ded­i­cated part­ner­ship of the Guagua Wa­ter Dis­trict (GWD) and Prime­Wa­ter In­fra­struc­ture Corp. (Prime­Wa­ter) launched its first ever Grand Walk the Line Ac­tiv­ity ( GWTL) .

It is an in­ten­si­fied bat­tle against Non-Rev­enue Wa­ter (NRW) through the con­duct of a street-by-street leak de­tec­tion to de­tect leak­ages and other forms of wa­ter ser­vices re­lated ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties in the served ar­eas of the part­ner­ship.

NRW is the loss of wa­ter pri­mar­ily due to leak­ages. In­stead of be­ing con­sumed by the con­ces­sion­aires, wa­ter loss be­comes a waste. The GWTL con­ducted by the GWD-Prime­Wa­ter part­ner­ship last Jan­u­ary 19, 2018, from 10:00 PM to 3:00 AM of the next day, and was par­tic­i­pated by 30 em­ploy­ees from both part­ners, as­sessed a to­tal of 126 leaks and 33 other ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties (i.e. bro­ken me­ters, il­le­gal con­nec­tions). Those num­bers amount to a huge vol­ume of wa­ter which were sup­posed to be uti­lized by the con­ces­sion­aires of the part­ner­ship.

The GWTL be­came a great tool for the part­ner­ship to iden­tify ar­eas with leak­ages and ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties, which were im­me­di­ately sub­jected to ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion. This, in turn, will aid in the re­cov­ery of loss wa­ter and will re­sult in an in­creased sup­ply of wa­ter and higher pres­sure to the part­ner­ship’s ser­vice ar­eas.

The GWD com­menced part­ner­ship with Prime­Wa­ter last Novem­ber 2017. As keen pro­po­nents of ro­bust eco­nomic devel­op­ment and growth, the part­ner­ship en­vi­sioned to pro­vide qual­ity and sus­tain­able wa­ter sup­ply and ser­vices to the peo­ple of Guagua, thereby con­tribut­ing to the bet­ter­ment of their qual­ity of life.
