Issues of Unaccounted for Water in the Urban Water Sector

Abstract

Mismanagement of precious potable water is glaring in urban water utilities throughout the globe. As a result, the most alarming issue is the increasing share of unaccounted for water, and more so in the developing countries. This has major implications both on cost and resource availability for the supplier as well as the consumer. It is observed that the main influencing factors for unaccounted for water are per capita GDP, literacy, technology and institutional structure for water distribution.
