According to, that means that in the world, 2½ times the population of the United States is lacking access to clean water. The loss of water through leaking supply pipes accounts for up to half of treated potable water vanishing before it can be consumed. This loss is called Non-Revenue Water (NRW). That is to say that the water that leaks out of the supply pipes prior to getting meter is water for which no revenue can be generated.
