Service providers across water, electricity, gas and lighting continue to adopt smart technologies to provide greater value for their customers while helping create a more sustainable future.
A combination of culprits has water utilities spending more than necessary for production while failing to collect all the revenue that should be flowing in. Implementing solutions to water loss in a specific order is critical for municipalities to effectively get a handle on the problem. This systematic approach addresses issues in their order of impact and return on investment with simple, low-cost measures at the start that boost revenue.
Fluctuations in pressure are the best indicator that a problem is brewing in a water distribution system, so monitoring pressure at strategic points can provide valuable insight about potential leaks. However, this isn’t as easy as it sounds. The good news is that technology is available to gather pressure data that can be used to enhance service and improve asset management without a large capital investment by utilities.
Addressing past due accounts traditionally means sending out a crew to turn off the water and then sending them back to restore service when the bill is paid. This can create a less-than-ideal situation by generating significant labor costs while having a potentially negative impact on vulnerable populations. Fortunately, there is a newer method available to address revenue capture while providing enhanced customer service by avoiding a turnoff.
Most utilities understand they have a nonrevenue water problem, but few know how to deal with it correctly. Start by learning more about how the issue affects your utility and what options are available.
For municipal water systems, the endless demand to maintain water quality can be challenging. Anytime the quality or pressure drops far enough to necessitate a boil notice, the costs to inform residents and get the problem under control can be extensive. It can also create a public relations nightmare. Newer solutions provide a cost-effective way to build an entire smart utility network to more proactively manage water quality and generate greater ROI.
