  2. Cape Breton Gets Tough On NRW And Saves Millions Of Gallons Of Water With The Installation Of Just One Automatic Flushing Unit
    5/3/2018

    The Cape Breton Regional Municipal (CBRM) Water Utility in Nova Scotia supplies potable water to a population of 81,000, which is distributed over 478 miles (770 km) of pipeline. To do this, they operate, maintain and manage 5 water treatment plants, 6 pumping stations, 11 water storage tanks, 8 sources of supply, 2,900 fire hydrants, 28,700 water meters and thousands of valves.

  3. Big Data Problem Solved With Magnetic Flow Meter Technology
    10/25/2018

    SUEZ operates regulated water systems in eight states, and provides contract services to over five million people. SUEZ operates several water systems in the suburbs of New York City including SUEZ New Rochelle and SUEZ Westchester in Westchester County, New York.

  4. Sniffing For Leaks: Gas Leak Detection Saves A Colorado Utility Thousands
    3/27/2018

    A small water district in Breckenridge, CO, was experiencing notably high water loss from November of 2015 through April of 2016. The apparent discrepancies in usage versus production led the utility to seek out the source(s) of the water loss.

  5. CT2211 Leak Detection System Datasheet
    6/3/2015

    The European Commission’s Aerosol Dispensers Directive (ADD) legislation (UN ADR 2013, 75/324/EEC) mandates that aerosol dispensers and small receptacles containing compressed gas (gas cartridges) must pass a leak-proof test before they are transported. Cascade’s CT2211 leak detection system detects and rejects leaking aerosol cans up to a rate of 500 cans per minute. The system is contactless, ensuring minimal product damage or contamination.

  6. Accurately Measuring Network Leakage
    6/26/2015

    The pressures of supplying a growing global population mean that the world’s water supplies need to be managed more closely than ever.

  7. A Lesson In DMA Management
    3/28/2018

    White House Utility District (WHUD) is one of the largest water and sewer utilities in the state of Tennessee. While developing a network of pipelines, pumping stations and storage units was challenging, the greater test came in finding access to a plentiful water supply.

  8. Next Generation Mag Meter: A Tool For Leak Detection
    9/26/2013

    Water — our most precious resource — is depleted globally by multiple activities. Common uses include drinking water, fire protection, agricultural/irrigation, manufacturing, food processing, etc. As our global population continues to increase, so does the need for fresh water supply. As a dynamic resource with many universal commitments, it is not surprising, with so many different global variables, that water scarcity is becoming a concern for both developed and developing countries. By Michelle Pawlowicz, marketing specialist, McCrometer

  9. Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note
    11/21/2013

    Pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are used throughout water distribution systems to reduce pipeline pressure to a predetermined set point. This decreases water loss and prevents pipe breaks.

  10. Using Analytics To Reduce Apparent And Real Water Loss
    11/1/2018

    Water loss control can be challenging, confusing, and time-consuming. Effective water loss control requires a multi-step process, including water audit (also referred to as a water balance), component analysis and intervention.
