The Water Services Corporation is pleased to announce that it has successfully piloted a technology that identifies water loses including thefts. This has so far been done in two specific water zones and the results are very encouraging. The Corporation can now trace perpetrators remotely and systematically.

 

So far, water theft prevention was a very laborious task that involved extensive investigations and human resources.

 

The project involves the use of new technologies on the ground that feed remote algorithms that are capable of pinpointing perpetrators.

 

A particular case has been identified through this system involved an individual who was stealing around 35% of the total water fed into a specific Gozitan village. Evidence is being formalized and all such cases will be forwarded to the police for further action at their end.

 

Over the next months, the technology used for this pilot will continue to be spread across Malta and Gozo.
