WaterAnalytics: Improving efficiency of water distribution networks

Water scarcity is an increasingly frequent and widespread phenomenon in the European Union and affects at least 10% of the European population. Around 10-40% of Europe’s available water is being wasted because of leakages in the supply system or lack of water-saving technologies. In Cyprus, 20-30% of water is lost due to leakages, which corresponds …
