IDB – Case Study for NRW Reduction and Control (New Providence, Bahamas)

Performance-based contracts can, under conditions delineated in this document, be a very effective, and, ultimately, cost-efficient mechanism for implementing NRW projects.The case of the WSC-Miya PBC in New Providence, Bahamas is a very good illustration of the attributes and benefits of a well designed PBC – 1) baseline study and target/plan adjustment period; 2) a “minimum scope” combined with flexibility for the contractor to adjust specific plans to the evolving situation, to both exceed targets and receive additional performance-based remuneration; 3) rapid NRW reduction, with its technical, financial and political benefits and results; 4) reduced project risk for the utility; 5) a lengthy maintenance phase to promote sustainability of the NRW reductions and 6) overall improvement of technical and financial performance at a competitive price.

Manager’s Non-Revenue Water Handbook

Using some key messages, The Manager’s Non-Revenue Water Handbook leads the utility manager through the stages of addressing NRW—first, understanding and quantifying NRW, and then developing a strategy to address it. This handbook was jointly funded by Ranhill Utilities Berhad and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). AECOM International Development provided assistance.
