Mali: Mali to decrease non-revenue water and improve water access

Itron, a company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, has signed a contract with the Malian Drinking Water Supply Management Company (SOMAGEP-SA), a water provider to 160,000 customers in Mali in Western Africa, to help the utility improve its water supply, save water and, ultimately, improve water access to more people in the country. SOMAGEP-SA will use Itron’s residential, and commercial and industrial water metering automation and monitoring solutions, including software-as-a-service for analytics and meter data management, to decrease its non-revenue water levels. Water scarcity is a major issue in Mali and SOMAGEP-SA has chosen to collaborate with Itron to start tackling water losses on its water supply network.
