Morocco, Initiates Plan to Drastically Reduce Drinking Water Leaks

By Faridat Salifu

Fès, Morocco, is embarking on a proactive journey to bolster its drinking water distribution network, aiming to curtail leaks by an impressive 80% before the end of 2026.

Under the banner of the “Integrated Program to Enhance the Efficiency of the Drinking Water Distribution Network in Fès,” the Régie Autonome de Distribution d’Eau et d’Électricité de Fès (RADEEF) has unveiled a multifaceted strategy.

This strategy encompasses meticulous macro-metering verification, advanced leak detection and repair methodologies, as well as comprehensive network rehabilitation efforts.

This initiative is particularly significant against the backdrop of Fès grappling with challenges stemming from drought conditions, underscoring the critical importance of ensuring access to potable water for its 1.1 million residents.

Fès boasts a distribution network spanning 2,900 kilometers, segmented into 64 hydraulic sectors, each outfitted with precise flow meters to facilitate efficient management.

By optimizing the distribution network, Radeef not only endeavors to guarantee a dependable water supply but also anticipates substantial savings in water production resources, encompassing energy and infrastructure expenditures.

Before the commencement of these enhancements, a thorough diagnostic assessment will be undertaken to identify and rectify any existing issues exacerbated by the prevailing drought circumstances.
