California Water Loss Control Collaborative

CA-NV AWWA is leading a broad group of stakeholders that came together in 2015 to combat water loss in California.  The California Water Loss Control Collaborative includes utility personnel, industry organizations, non-profits as well as state entities.

The Collaborative includes:

  • CA-NV AWWA Water Loss Control Committee – share best practices, non-revenue water challenges and successes, discuss technology innovations, and participate in planning conference technical sessions and specialty workshops. Coordinates with the AWWA Water Loss Control Committee
  • California Water Loss Collaborative Steering Committee – overarching coordination and program implementation between Collaborative activities
  • Water Audit Validator (WAV) Certificate Program - Water Audit Validators examine water loss audit inputs prior to audit submission to the California Department of Water Resources (per SB555).
  • Partnership for Saving Water Program – a water loss control peer-to-peer bench marking and recognition program. To be developed in 2018.
