Main Presenter: Richard Taylor, Principal Engineer – Water, Thomas Civil and Environmental Consultants
Richard works predominantly in the area of water loss management, around New Zealand and the Pacific. He has completed num
erous water balances (and associated review of data, processes etc), a number of water loss strategies, and is directly involved in the network sectorisation of two water supplies (22,000 connections and 54,000 connections).
He has strong water supply operational and planning experience due to his 22 years at the former Waitakere City Council in Auckland where he was responsible for the water supply network and directly involved with the sectorisation of the network (70,000 connections) including pressure management. Non-Revenue Water was reduced from 25% to 11%, and levels of real water losses were reduced to world class standards (ILI of 1.0).
He led national water loss intitatives such as the Benchloss NZ and NZ Water Loss Guideline projects, and was responsible for organizing three successful national water loss conferences (in conjunction with WaterNZ) in February 2006, 2008 and 2010. He has attended five International Water Association water loss conferences since 2007 and has strong connections with a number of international water loss experts.
