A small water district in Breckenridge, CO, was experiencing notably high water loss from November of 2015 through April of 2016. The apparent discrepancies in usage versus production led the utility to seek out the source(s) of the water loss.
The Water Systems Division of Brockville, a city located in the Thousand Islands region of Eastern Ontario, serves more than 22,000 residents and businesses that call the city home, as well as a portion of the neighboring Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley.
In 2014, the City of Miramar was rapidly approaching their permitted source water limits, and eliminating water loss became a primary objective.
This leak was discovered using LeakFinderRT with surface mounted sensors. The total sensor-to-sensor spacing was 450 m (1,480 ft).
Today’s data driven utilities are paving the way for smart water systems through their use of location intelligence. Location influences all aspects of managing water — from protecting a sustainable supply to delivering safe drinking water. At Esri’s upcoming User Conference, which brings together more than 18,000 geographic information system (GIS) professionals from across the globe, utility companies will gather together to share successes and best practices regarding the myriad ways instituting spatial analytics technology has benefited their operations.
The tipping point is here, and utilities are learning the best ways to prevent water loss and protect revenue.
An extensive research project has developed a new method for predicting pipeline failures, offering a potential savior to drinking water systems.
Not all technology holds up during a weather emergency. Electricity often fails, communication methods are compromised, and computer networks go offline.
The 100-year main replacement cycle isn’t always best — it can lead to replacing mains that have years of remaining useful life.
For many utilities, failing pipelines and non-revenue water are atop the list of concerns. However, these issues can be greatly mitigated by leveraging readily available data in an intelligent way — through smart water management.

Echologics’ flagship LeakFinder-ST correlator is a result of extensive research as well as the input from global leak detection experts on the user interface and design of equipment to meet the needs of end user.
A user-friendly real-time acoustic noise correlator with a high-definition touch color LCD screen and advanced filtering system to unmask even the most difficult leaks.
Virtually all industries from food and beverage to chemical processing use heat exchangers, condensers,or jacketed vessels. Leakage of the process into the cooling water represents a loss of product and can be a source of fouling or corrosion in the cooling water system.
This video explains how Aquis Leak Detection can reduce the amount of Non-revenue Water by reducing loss of water through existing leaks and reduce the risk of additional leaks. Furthermore energy consumption, emissions and use of chemicals are reduced and water quality is improved.
