English Abstract

Different official parties related to water sector estimate the Gaza water system efficiency, but in the calculation steps remarked absence of a comprehensive water balance structure as International Water Association recommended, many terms not touched like unbilled authorized consumption and physical and commercial losses. Until cooperation between water sector regulator council and Gaza municipality led to building a water balance but many of its components are estimated. Increasing the water system efficiency is directly related to decreasing nonrevenue water, NRW volume is significant enough in order to start a comprehensive assessment and management of the water system of Gaza city. The water balance top-down approach established by International Water Association is suitable for Gaza water distribution system, the followed methodology starts by reviewing related literatures, then illustrate definitions and make calculation of non-revenue water terms, the data includes system input volume, billed authorized, un-billed authorized, physical loses and commercial loses It was found that the NRW is about 33.5% of the system input volume and the water losses is 30.8%, this results reflect the gab of the historical calculation and estimation of Gaza system efficiency. It is recommended to make a regular monitoring of the water balance component and the percentage of NRW also execute the sustainable management plan, to ensure the permanent decreasing of loses and increasing the system efficiency until reaching the break point between investment and losses cost.
