  • Meter errors - Big deal or Not? What is the impact of meter errors on reducing trunk main leakage?
  • The benefits of community involvement – Australian and New Zealand case studies showing how innovative solutions have helped customers and communities adapt to a water- stressed environment
  • Getting the most out of ‘Smart DMAs’ – next generation network surveys and forecasting models to predict expected bursts
