"The Secrets of Their Success"

MWRA's demand management efforts have been featured in the January/February issue of Water Efficiency, a national journal for conservation professionals.

The Water Efficiency cover story highlights MWRA's program to aggressively reduce water waste and consumption system-wide.

MWRA's demand management initiatives include continuous leak detection and pipeline rehabilitation efforts, community support programs and public education about household water efficiency.

The demand management program has been in place since MWRA was created in 1985 and continues today with excellent results.

MWRA's overall demand for water has been reduced from 336 million gallons per day (average) in 1987 to approximately 212 million gallons per day in 2007/2008 -- despite population changes and recent housing booms.
