A collaboration of statewide stakeholders that meets regularly as a guidance group and in specific breakout forums to share successes and lessons learned as utilities embrace non-revenue water (NRW) best practices to deliver safe, high quality water, in a way that is economically efficient.  The statewide Water Loss Control Collaborative produces research, awareness, outreach, and technical assistance in ramping up water loss control and targeted infrastructure reinvestment. A main goal is better management of water resources which will also help the utility’s business model. This is a forum where you can both share information and take information away with you back to your community.
