Water-safety plans for piped supplies with limited data – a case study from India
Problems arise implementing WSPs in many towns where data on the piped network is limited. Risk mapping can be a useful tool to overcome this and identify points where risk is particularly high. It uses local engineers' knowledge to assess physical hazards and the vulnerability of the pipework and uses proxies for the susceptibility of the population to disease.
