In 2010 a cooperation started between the Foundation Water is our World , Aquario water management BV (Sneek, the Netherlands) and Vitens-Evides International (Zwolle, the Netherlands) in order to help the municipal drinking water and sanitation company Apa-Canal located in Drochia, Moldova. Main objective is to improve the drinking water supply situation and the sanitation situation of the inhabitants of the town Drochia (approx. 18,000 inhabitants) in the North of Moldova. The water company Apa-Canal maintains an old Soviet Russian drinking water and sanitation infrastructure. The Non Revenue Water (NRW) (amount of produced water not paid for) is approx. 67%. In 2013 the drinking water supply was back to 14/7 service (last three years the service was 6 hours/day). The loss of drinking water is significant reduced. The old sewerage system is now preventively maintained for the first time in 40 years.
