WATER LOSS AND LEAK DETECTION RESOURCES
How Acoustic Water Leak Detection Is Used To Tackle Water Loss
Italy’s biggest multi-utility, A2A S.p.A., like many water utilities in North America and around the world, had to corral water loss to sustain efficient operations. A2A piloted acoustic leak detection as a potential solution, achieving A+ results.
Kansas Water Utility Identifies Non-Revenue Water Through Trimble Water Technology
Mitigating non-revenue water (NRW) challenges has taken an increasing role in water utilities over the past several years. There is a saying in the water industry that ‘what gets measured gets managed’ and the American Water Works Association has recommended water utilities rely on actionable performance indicators to meet the challenges brought on by real losses and apparent losses resulting in underbilling.

Blazing A Path To Water Conservation With Smart Technology
Albert Einstein once said: “we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” This same adage applies to water utilities today as water conservation takes on a greater role for customers and governments, pushing sustainability to the forefront of industry challenges. Thankfully, utilities no longer have to rely on the same old solutions when examining and addressing water loss.
Three-Dimensional ROI: Getting More Than Just Dollars From Your Smart Water Network
When it comes to digital transformation via ‘smart city’ technologies for leak detection or sewer overflow prevention, utility needs inevitably overlap with the economic and infrastructure interests of other city operations. Evaluating operating efficiencies in the context of three-dimensional (3D) ROI can uncover practical ways to drive greater dividends for all concerned — utilities, society, and the environment around them.
A Routemap For Water Companies To Boost Efficiency Worldwide
Water UK, the trade association representing major British water companies, has released a plan for achieving in net-zero carbon emissions in the water sector by 2030, 20 years before the government’s economy-wide net-zero emissions goal.
How Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning Will Underpin Asset Management Of The Future
Aging infrastructure is by far the most recognized challenge for municipal water systems. In many places across the country, pipes and valves have been in the ground more than 50 years. While this has led to a dramatic increase in failures, the typical municipality only has the budget to repair about 1 percent of its distribution system assets in any year. That’s where newer artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) solutions can play an outsized role.
Hamad International Airport Reduces Leaks By 60%
The airport had to deal with a large volume of non-registered water in its extensive water distribution networks. In the light of this situation, the implementation of Idrica’s services and technology managed to boost efficiency in the facilities. The results included a 60% reduction in the number of leaks and a 20% drop in maintenance costs.
Intelligent Leak Detection, Pressure Monitoring Reduces Park City Water Loss By 10%
Long before Park City, Utah became a world-class mountain resort and venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, it was famous as a silver mining town. Founded by prospectors in the late 1800s, Park City remained a mining town until the 1970s.
City of San Juan Bautista
The City of San Juan Bautista, California, also known as the City of History, is a mission town nestled in the San Juan Valley. Some of the city’s infrastructure is over 100 years old. The city’s water meters were an aging mix of units from various manufacturers. The meters were losing accuracy and becoming unreliable, leading to a loss of billing revenue. In addition, manually reading the meters was a very inefficient way for the city’s small staff to spend their time. Also, like most California cities, water conservation in San Juan Bautista is a top priority. Helping customers find leaks and understand how much water they really use is an important step towards conservation.
