New Delhi: Speaking at the valedictory session of virtual ‘Global Water Management Conclave,’ conservation: John Leeuwenburg, Global Product Manager & Commercial Director, Water Office, Real World Systems, Netherlands said that ‘there are a whole lot of assets for water supply and the asset management is an integral part of water conservation. Assets are necessary for drainage and storm water network.’ The first edition of this virtual conclave was organised recently by APAC News Network in association with Union Ministry of Jal Shakti in which Embassy of Netherlands was also a Country Partner.

Talking about the challenges, he said ‘one of the reasons why water projects fail is due to lack of data and trying to include every aspect instead of focusing on select few and doing an efficient work. We help in addressing the challenge of data gap by collecting data from different sources and put it into a single source to make a robust database. Without data, we cannot go to the next innovative step.’

‘The groundwater database includes information on acquisition, management, validation, analysis and reporting. There are tools and mechanisms to facilitate a good decision making process. A standard data model has been developed which allows everyone to use those standards and mechanisms. We also do groundwater quality analysis at different areas so that the water purification methods can be customised accordingly,’ said John.

He further added, ‘data quality and data quantity are a pre-requisite. Managing groundwater is key to water conservation efforts. Groundwater should be made visible. We should work towards resiliency and sustainability.’
