# Calculating Water Loss in the Distribution System

Published on by John Wilkinson, Effluent treatment manager in Academic

What are the best methods to calculate/estimate the water loss in the water distribution network?

How can I calculate the Linear Water Losses Index (LWLI)? I need the formula for a community water distribution system of 10000 households.
