How do you compare the performance of water systems across the world?

Academics and water business professionals spend a lot of time discussing differences in approaches to water management. The discussions are the foundation for new ways to treat, convey or store water. The discussion may compare water systems across nations. Water systems may deliver different functions, e.g. potable vs non-potable water supply. And often water systems are under different regulation schemes.

We find, that most of these comparisons use a basic set of performance indicators such as cost or energy use per m3, flow capacities, population served, and more. However, we hypothesize that the comparisons are missing a whole suite of performance differences that may help to understand the diversity and potential of water systems.

The aim of this study is to develop a comprehensive set of performance indicators for water provision and compare selected water supply systems in California and Northern Europe. Analysis of the data will provide unprecedented insights on the efficiency of urban water systems.

This project will develop upon the existing Key Performance Indicators for water supplies in Denmark (See publication DANVA Water in Figures) and assess the current state of drinking water supply in Denmark and California. Notably, we are looking to include data on water quality and energy consumption to the assessment of the water systems.
