Abstract

This study provides an overview of the 21st century research trends for water leakage control strategies that focus on pressure management, active leakage control, pipe rehabilitation, asset management and District Metered Area (DMA) design. The biggest contribution comes from the research team in Italy, whilst the most active researcher is based in Greece. Research in this field has gained momentum from 2008 although a couple of studies have been conducted since 2000. Control strategies are receiving attention not only from academia but also from industrial players who are looking for technological advances by collaborating with academic institutions in research and development. The main strategy to reduce water leakage is the pressure management of water distribution systems using optimal settings of a pressure reducing valve installation. Despite available technologies, the commitment from the government, the water operators and the local consumers are the most important criterion for the effective implementation of water-leakage control strategies.
