Tracking Non-Revenue Water Loss with GIS

The White House Utility District in Southern Tennessee embarked on a water loss reduction program in 2012 in collaboration with Esri, a geographic mapping and software development company. To date, the utility has saved roughly $500,000 through eliminating water loss and reducing manpower hours.

The town of Olds in Alberta, Canada, faced a daunting task. The public works and utilities department, serving the town of approximately 8,000, set out in 2007 to decrease the municipality’s total water usage by 10% by January 2017, using the amount of water it consumed in 2006 as a

Preventing Water Loss in Storage Tanks

Preventing Water Loss in Storage Tanks

A 49-year-old water storage tank leaking water eventually led the town of Chapmanville, WV, to replace its 75-year old water distribution system in 2015. Eventually, it learned that the town’s distribution lines were also leaking like sieves. Together, the distribution lines and leaking storage tank were losing more than half

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.

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,
