Abstract: In a context of an increasing water scarcity, urbanization processes must adapt to the additional costs of network's extension to provide an access to this resource. The aim of this paper is to identify determinants of waste induced by water distribution system in Nantes Métropole. An applied environmental benchmark based on the network length and the number of subscribers allows us to measure the impact of network density and management structure on water leaks. The comparative study of efficiency between municipalities shows that low-density networks and management by the public sector are less efficient, and subject to more water loss during its delivery.
