    In areas with an abundance of water, leak detection isn’t always made a priority. But every utility should be working to reduce non-revenue water, says Marc Bracken, vice president and general manager of Echologics.

  8. Water Pressure Monitoring: The First Step In Distribution System Intelligence
    7/7/2014

    For water utilities, understanding water pressure in the distribution system is a critical component of managing their community’s water supply. In this interview with Water Online Radio, Paul Gifford, Director of Research and Development for Mueller Company, explains how surprised many customers are when they learn what their water pressure actually is.

  9. Researchers Cross Oceans To Create Cutting-Edge Leak Detection Robot
    6/25/2014

    Two prestigious universities have come together to tackle water loss. King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in Saudi Arabia and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), created an innovative in-pipe leak detection robot, which uses pressure gradients to identify leaks. The detector — which operates autonomously — can sense leaks at any angle around the circumference of the pipe.

  10. Non-Revenue Water Loss Lessens With Better Metering Analytics
    6/24/2014

    Installing or upgrading to an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution may only happen once-in-a-lifetime at a water utility. So it is important to take the time to understand the specific circumstances and outcomes that you wish to hit before making your purchasing decision.
