  2. Los Angeles Department Of Water And Power Uses GIS To Improve Water Incident Management
    12/3/2015

    While utilities use sophisticated systems to supply clean water as well as collect and treat wastewater, the effort to manage incidents and outages leaves room for improvement. Water utilities often rely on manual processes to handle customer reports of leaks, loss-of-service or quality issues.

  3. Leveraging Water Network Data For System Management Prioritization
    4/2/2018

    KUB's water system has experienced 30 percent to 35 percent non-revenue water over the past 10 years; hard-to-find underground leaks are the big culprit. Reducing leaks improves customer service, increases operational efficiency, reduces expenses for chemicals and power, and has other benefits.

  4. An Example Set: WHUD
    3/30/2018

    In 2007, White House Utility District (WHUD), a water utility serving approximately 90,000 consumers and businesses in Tennessee, faced a dilemma: how to meet a projected growing demand for water within the budget and capital constraints faced by municipal and mid-sized utilities everywhere.

  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. Primayer Equipment Propels A Leak Detection Program
    3/30/2018

    The 2010 Water Stewardship Act enacted by the state of Georgia has accelerated several utilities’ water loss and control programs. Provoked by the Act and the Water Supply Efficient Improvement Plan mandating that “by July 1, 2016, Public water systems shall develop and conduct a water loss control program to investigate, assess, and implement efforts to improve water supply efficiency,” Columbus Water Works (CWW) set out to develop a comprehensive plan for not only meeting, but exceeding the required objectives.

  7. Case Study: United Water New Jersey Discovers Large Leak On 42-Inch Water Main With Echologics Transmission Main Leak Detection Service

    United Water New Jersey (UWNJ), a subsidiary of United Water, one of the leading water and wastewater service providers in the United States, provides water services to more than 800,000 people throughout Bergen and Hudson counties and surrounding areas. By Mueller Water Products

  8. Miramar Reaps The Benefits Of Leak Detection
    3/29/2018

    In 2014, the City of Miramar was rapidly approaching their permitted source water limits, and eliminating water loss became a primary objective.

  9. Echologics: 27” Cast Iron Joint Leak Discovered In Bristol, England
    1/27/2014

    This leak was discovered using LeakFinderRT with surface mounted sensors. The total sensor-to-sensor spacing was 450 m (1,480 ft).

  10. Echologics Triumphs Over Other Leak Detection Systems In American Leak Detection’s 'Battle Of The Correlators'
    9/9/2011
    In order to determine which correlators will help its specialists to most accurately and efficiently detect leaks on metallic and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes in various scenarios, American Leak Detection conducted “The Battle of the Correlators,” a side-by-side field evaluation of eight different leak detection correlators.
