Tag: leak detection

The primary purpose of leak detection systems (LDS) is to assist pipeline controllers in detecting and localizing leaks. LDS provide an alarm and display other related data to the pipeline controllers in order to aid in decision-making. Pipeline leak detection systems are also beneficial because they can enhance productivity and system reliability thanks to reduced downtime and reduced inspection time. LDS are therefore an important aspect of pipeline technology.

Counting the Drops

Counting the Drops

Leaks are never good, whether it’s a leaky boat or a leaky pipe system. Even advanced water utility systems can experience water loses ranging from 10 to 40%, with these losses being proportional to the population of the urban area serviced by the water distribution system. Large cities like New York,

The Art of Leak Detection and the Arithmetic of Audits

According to EPA, public systems face numerous challenges, including aging infrastructure, increasing regulatory requirements, water quantity and water concerns, and inadequate resources. These challenges are amplified through changes in population and climate. It is estimated that the US will need to spend upwards of $200 billion on water systems in

Strategies for Preventing Non-Revenue Water Loss

Lack of dedicated utility funding for non-revenue water is a perceived barrier to progress. “The irony is that NRW reduction actions don’t have to be funded out of stressed operating budgets where funds may be already tight,” says Dickinson. “They can be funded out of capital improvement programs or performance-based
