Managing Non-Surfacing Leaks – The Key to Real Water Loss Reduction
Sales Manager, ASTERRA
Henry County Public Service Authority has had an increasing real water loss over a period of time and identified a program to reduce this trend. They retained the services of ASTERRA to use Utilis satellite leak pre-location technology to identify likely leaking locations (LLL) within their system using the Recover product. Recover has an excellent track record of finding non-surfacing leaks since 2016. Henry County PSA was able to locate 311 leaks pursuant to one service resulting in real water loss going from increasing at 29% per year to decreasing at 12% per year. This was documented through the excellent record keeping that correlated the real water loss recovered due to non-surfacing leaks to reduction in real water loss volume.
