    The Drive Towards Digital Transformation

    It seems that everywhere that you go in the water industry at the current time, somebody is talking about digital transformation…or if we go back five minutes, it was Water 4.0…and 10 minutes ago (it seems), it was “smart water.” These are all very well used buzzwords that the industry is destined to think about for a short-term and then promptly forget about. In reality, though, we as an industry have been hit by a number of different concepts for a number of different technological aspects for a good number of years now. For almost as long we have had a term for all of this — “widgets.”

    Saturday will be the 84th playing of the Auburn vs. Alabama football game. The first was played in 1893, and following a tie in 1907, the game was not played again until 1948 after a mandate to resume by the state legislature. It’s as well-known as any college football rivalry, and many fans of other teams will acknowledge it as the nation’s most intense.

    Early Leak Detection Efforts Already Yield Significant Savings

    A large municipal water utility in the southwest operates multiple facilities that provide more than 170 MGD of drinking water to residents and businesses. The utility, which spans 100 square miles, is prone to leaky pipes because parts of its distribution system have been in place for nearly a century. Also known as non-revenue water, or NRW, these leaks significantly drive up the cost of production.

    Down-To-Earth Non-Revenue Water Strategies

    Non-revenue water (NRW) and, in particular, water loss through leakage has become an increasing priority focus for water utilities around the world.  With failure rates of aging infrastructure increasing and growing water stress due to population growth and climate change, reducing the loss of essential water resources is paramount.  Leak monitoring and detection systems from Trimble Water help water utilities proactively identify and reduce NRW and water loss, prevent service outages, and prioritize infrastructure repairs. Easy-to-use wireless and mobile leak detection solutions provide clear, accurate, real-time insights into the condition of the water network beyond the treatment plant.  Paired with Trimble’s intuitive cloud-based GIS software, Trimble’s solutions make it simple for water professionals to visualize, manage, and analyze data from the field and use that knowledge to improve productivity and network performance.

WATER LOSS AND LEAK DETECTION SOLUTIONS

  • Echologics LeakMonitor - Permanent Leak Detection

    Pipelines are a valuable asset and leakage or failure can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in direct and indirect costs.

  • EchoShore®-TX Transmission Main Monitoring

    While it often starts with a leak, historically many water operators have waited until there is an evident problem or rupture on a critical transmission main to react. Today’s utilities have a proven and cost-effective monitoring option that notifies them with a problem in a main. The EchoShore-TX platform will call, text or email you promptly after detecting a leak or other anomaly. Through monitoring and notification, utility response time can be significantly reduced to help mitigate infrastructure damage and water loss.

  • Model 4500 Gas Leak Detector/Monitor

    The JCS Industries Model 4500 Gas Leak Detector/Monitor is a low cost, non-contact and easy to install measurement device designed for monitoring trace amounts of compressed gaseous water treatment chemicals such as, but not limited to: chlorine, sulfur dioxide and ammonia in a closed or open environment.

  • Accurately Measuring Network Leakage

    The pressures of supplying a growing global population mean that the world’s water supplies need to be managed more closely than ever.

  • EchoShore®-M Transmission Main Leak Detection

    The EchoShore®-M system combines the latest generation of acoustic sensors with proven wireless communication networks in a node configuration that can be easily moved to multiple sites in your transmission main network – to search for leaks or validate acoustic POI signals. The EchoShore-M system enables utilities to quickly pinpoint leaks and significantly reduce water loss. The system is designed to be lightweight, rugged and portable, allowing a water company to monitor different sections of the transmission main from just a few hours to several days.

  • Eureka3+

    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.
