Water Loss and Leak Detection White Papers, Case Studies, and Application Notes

  1. Using Earth Observation Data To Identify Areas Of Infrastructure At Risk Of Failure And Intelligently Deploy Ground-Based Detection Devices

    Henry County Water Authority in Georgia, USA, had been relying on acoustic leak detection for eleven years, working with a dedicated leak detection company that uses noise  loggers and other acoustic listening devices to find leaks. However, these traditional ground-based methods of monitoring Henry County’s extensive water catchments and infrastructure have their limitations.

  2. Down-To-Earth Non-Revenue Water Strategies

    Non-revenue water (NRW) and, in particular, water loss through leakage has become an increasing priority focus for water utilities around the world.  With failure rates of aging infrastructure increasing and growing water stress due to population growth and climate change, reducing the loss of essential water resources is paramount.  Leak monitoring and detection systems from Trimble Water help water utilities proactively identify and reduce NRW and water loss, prevent service outages, and prioritize infrastructure repairs. Easy-to-use wireless and mobile leak detection solutions provide clear, accurate, real-time insights into the condition of the water network beyond the treatment plant.  Paired with Trimble’s intuitive cloud-based GIS software, Trimble’s solutions make it simple for water professionals to visualize, manage, and analyze data from the field and use that knowledge to improve productivity and network performance.

  3. Primayer Equipment Propels A Leak Detection Program

    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.
