2018 WaterAid Gala Dinner Night Raises Over £3000!

The WaterAid Gala Dinner Night at the Global Leakage Summit 2018 raised a fantastic £3,33.10 for charity.

WaterAid would like to thank those who generously donated prizes, bid in the auction and played 'heads or tails' on the night.  Your generosity helped to make this possible and will transform lives through clean water to drink and decent toilets.

This total raised was made up of:

·         Auction: £2,945

·         Heads or tails: £388.10 and €20

Since WaterAid was set up by the water industry in 1981 we have seen huge progress in terms of access to basic services and 9 out of 10 people around the world now have access to clean water.

With the continued support of the Global Leakage Summit, they are working to achieve their vision of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene for everyone, everywhere by 2030.


The World-Leading Forum for Leakage Management...

...Now In Its 11th Edition And Established As A Brand Leader - For Water Company Practitioners To Exchange Information on Topical Case Studies And Learn About Best Practice Technologies For Assessing, Monitoring And Reducing Leakage In Their Networks


  • Public Interest Commitment (PIC) goals - a keynote presentation from 3 UK water company CEOs to explain the steps to deliver on their commitment to reduce leakage
  • Innovation, collaboration and cooperation.  Innovation is not just technology, but innovative concepts and practices - how will the 'heat-map' of company research help the industry to achieve zero leakage?
  • Integrating network data to localise leaks in fixed and mobile networks. 2018-19 saw the largest roll out of in-situ acoustic loggers in the UK water industry - how have these have helped to meet leakage targets?
  • Managing global challenges - water scarcity, drought and natural disasters, and now Covid-19.  How is the global water industry coping?
  • Managing leakage using machine learning, big data analysis and hydraulic simulation - using ever smarter algorithm technologies to analyse the mass of data coming in from all over the network, and to detect abnormal patterns outside the normal operating range
  • The rise in automation and AI will cause 75 million jobs to be lost by 2022, but 133 million new jobs will be created (WEF 2018). What effect will this have on the water industry workforce? Will the new technologies be in the hands of Gen Z?
  • Smart network infrastructure management - using big data analytics to link pipe replacement to failure rate.  How to maintain a desired level of service at a lowest asset life cycle cost?
  • How can smart networks improve performance in other areas to meet Outcome Delivery Incentives (ODIs) as well as reducing leakage and Per Capita Consumption (PCC)?
  • Bringing pipe repair into the digital age. What are the options for minimal disruption or non-intrusive pipe repairs?
