21 Mar WHUD’s Leak Detection Program Featured in WaterWorld
WHUD’s advanced leak detection team has again gained national attention for their innovative approach to leak management and the remarkable results they’ve seen. The leak detection program essentially breaks the District’s 600 square foot service area into 30+ district metered areas (DMAs). Each zone has two insertion meters monitoring nighttime flows into and out of that area, when usage should be at a minimium. If water usage is over a predetermined, and carefully calculated level (the District averaged out what “typical” nighttime flow should be), the area appears in yellow or red, depending on the level of overage, on a custom dashboard. Every morning, the water loss analyst has a quick and easy look at where the district may be experience water loss.
The results have been so strong, the program has been featured in numerous national magazines and has garnered interest from utility districts across the country – from California to Kentucky. To read the latest piece in WaterWorld, click here.
