Water IDEAS 2018 International Conference on Efficient Management of Water Loss, Energy and Demand and on Smart Water Distribution Systems

17-19 October 2018 – H2O, Bologna (Italy)

IWA WaterIDEAS 2018 is held in cooperation and conjunction with H2O Fair in Bologna (18 – 19 October 2018) and follows a series of successful conferences of IWA, including WaterLossEurope Conference in Ferrara in May 2012 and WaterIDEAS in Bologna in 2014 and in 2016.

The Water utilities have old infrastructure to meet water demand, stringent environmental targets and increasing regulatory requirements. At the same time the utilities have to improve their operational efficiency and reduce the volume of non-revenue water.
