Early Leak Detection Efforts Already Yield Significant Savings

A large municipal water utility in the southwest operates multiple facilities that provide more than 170 MGD of drinking water to residents and businesses. The utility, which spans 100 square miles, is prone to leaky pipes because parts of its distribution system have been in place for nearly a century. Also known as non-revenue water, or NRW, these leaks significantly drive up the cost of production.

As part of a broader water conservation program, the utility launched an early-leak-detection effort to get a better handle on the problem. This included the placement of Trimble wireless leak solutions — supplied by Aquarius Spectrum Ltd. under an exclusive U.S. distribution agreement — at the water entry point of a district metered area, also known as a DMA.
