Satellite leak detection is a hot topic at AWWA ACE 2019
Two independent engineering consulting firms presented the results of projects comparing the Utilis satellite-based method for leak detection to other methods at the American Water Works Association’s ACE 2019 annual conference. The presentations were conducted by Tori Yokoyama from Hazen and Sawyer, and Leita Bennet of GHD. Both independently showed that Utilis far outperformed historical methods of detection.
“Satellite leak detection is a new technology that has the potential to not only identify leaks but to assist water organizations with capital improvement planning. This technology is new to our business and [the presentation will show] the demonstrated success of using the technology to get ahead of leak detection, identify leak-prone areas, and assist in prioritization of capital improvement actions,” stated Bennet in the presentation’s published abstract.
Additionally at ACE 2019, James Perry (Utilis V.P. of Business Development) presented “Demystifying Satellite-Based Leak Detection,” and was interviewed live by Water Talk, a podcast by Water Online which can be found at https://www.wateronline.com/
