Water consumption survey on a national level
Sofiyska Voda“ AD launches a long-term research project together with the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy. The project aims at measuring the actual water consumption in residential and public buildings within the MoS area. The main reason for this project is that the acting norms in this field are more than 40 years old, as for this period the way of life and the people’s habits have changed drastically– not only in Sofia, but globally as well. The exact data for water consumption will help for the correct designing, planning and operation of WSS systems.
The consumption survey is connected with multiple readings only of the revenue/common water meters, without the individual ones. The readings will be taken with electronic recording devices - loggers. Each reading will be at least 1 week long. The devices at many sites will be read several times during the period of the project. The data will be received in digital format, so that they can be analyzed and summarized.
