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.

Sidestepping Drought

Sidestepping Drought

THROUGHOUT 2010 TO 2015, water availabil­ity in Texas was plummeting. Learning from California—where a continued drought resulted in mandatory action for water providers—Texan regional water authorities began to implement drought contingency plans, the impact of which would have far reaching consequences for the financial sustainability of water utilities.

Leak detection is one of the highest priorities of any water distribution system operator. Leaks are the result of structural failures to the containment integrity of a water supply system’s distribution pipe network. These failures can occur anywhere in the pipe system but mostly occur at pipe joints and fittings.

Customer Side Leaks
What about the leaks that happen on the customer’s side? When water was cheap, and sustainability didn’t have its own page in a corporation’s annual report, companies and institutions didn’t put a high priority on water losses. But that has changed, says David Taylor, chief of operations at

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
