Stopping water leakages

In an effort to optimize water consumption and to minimize leakages in the Mediterranean region, the EU is deploying smart water meters as part of five pilot projects in Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Italy and Cyprus. These are being implemented within the framework of the Aquaknight initiative, which is part of the “Mediterranean Sea Basin” multilateral cross-border cooperation programme. A first international conference on water leakage, attended by distribution network operators, took place in Alexandria. The EU Neighbourhood Info Centre’s journalist has sent us this report.
This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre available in English, French and Arabic. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
