Preventing Water Loss

In the past seventeen years from 2000 to 2017, AWS has built a good long-term water infrastructure within the township, marking it as the centralized system dedicated to supplying domestic water. AWS had 30% water loss in 2000, but now it has reduced to almost 0% water loss. AWS team members are reachable 24 hours by phone and these team members can responsibly work with HDPE External Piping with branded EF fittings & water meter that can make long-term sense unlike PVC, according to the prevalent plumbing standards.
