With the participation of more than 7.000 students from schools in Sabadell, EDUCASSA is an educational program to educate and raise awareness of the importance of water (quality, consumption, etc.) that targets three age segments, covering the whole of compulsory basic education. From 3 to 5 years the water cycle is explained through stories and games, between 6 and 9 years they will know how the municipal water is managed and 10 to 14 years they visit a waste water treatment plant, which aims to understand the process used to depurate the water.

Abbey Meadows is an area of open land between the River Soar and the Grand Union Canal. A ditch running through the area was susceptible to flooding, often rendering sports pitches unusable. Flooding of the ditch also impacted on surface water quality: flooded water drained onto the busy A6 road, carrying pollution into the storm drains which discharge into the River Soar. LCC widened the ditch to create 1,000m3 of flood storage capacity, protecting playing fields, preventing traffic disruption and improving the quality of storm drain water.

The present trend in Jerusalem's municipal water utilities is active management of the system, including managing water pressure, water quality, water flow – this by the implementation of a growing number of sensors and very advanced analysis systems. Located in a semi-arid climate, the issue of conservation is of major importance to Hagihon – The Jerusalem Regional Water Utility. Hagihon has achieved global recognition as an early adopter of innovative technologies, especially in the area of decreasing NRW ("non-revenue water" or "water Loss").
