Canal Improvements

Overview

Over the past three financial years, the NIC has steadily improved the recovery of water (volume of water invoiced vs the volume produced) to 70%.  In order to increase and maintain this recovery rate and achieve a target rate of 75%, continuous canal improvement is required to reduce water loss from derelict structures.  Therefore, a strategy was developed to rehabilitate 2.5 km of canals in two regions, during the 2019/20 financial year
