This paper is presented in three distinct stages. Firstly, an overview of what precisely UFW is, in particular the leakage element, and how it occurs. Secondly, a case study will be presented for Jaipur, the capital city of the State of Rajasthan in India. Finally, an indication will be provided of the lessons that have been learnt from this and how they are being applied to the city of Calcutta, where a project for improvements in the management of the water distribution system is being carried out.
