Costa Rica's public water and sewerage utility AyA, which serves capital San José, is in charge of handling and overseeing all aspects regarding potable water services, and solid waste, wastewater and rainwater collection and disposal in urban areas; promoting the preservation of water basins and the environment; controlling water pollution; and enforcing the country's general potable water legislation. In 2015, AyA lined up financing for a program to improve services in the greater metropolitan area of capital San José. The program, dubbed RANC-EE, aims to reduce levels of non-revenue water (NRW) and improve efficiency of water services, as a means of contributing to sustainable water practices in the capital area. RANC-EE also considers measures to improve energy efficiency via the optimization of pumping stations within the network.
