SAN DIEGO, April 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — As the world gets ready to celebrate Earth Day 2021, there is a push to focus on global warming and clean energy. With this in mind, a new player in the US water sustainability market, Utilis has launched an Impact Calculator that shows the amount of damage water leakage has on the environment.
For global development to be sustainable, potable water is a necessity. Utilis plays a key role in the maintenance and protection of the water supply using data driven solutions. A staggering 7200M gallons of water are saved every year through Utilis solutions, with an average of 3.3 leaks found per day at each subscribing utility.
“Utilis doesn’t just provide a product to our customers, we provide the full solution, which includes helping them lower their environmental impact on the planet,” said Elly Perets, CEO of Utilis. “This Impact Calculator shows water utilities everywhere the impact they can impart by finding and repairing leaking pipes.”
Utilis also contributes to the goal of taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. Climate change from increasing CO2 is projected to increase the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, such as heat waves, droughts, and floods. The Utilis L-Band SAR analytics help customers identify leaks so they can be repaired, lowering the excess electricity used to pump and treat the water (as well as associated CO2).
With Utilis’ technical innovation, including the Impact Calculator, Utilis is able to assist both public and private sectors to overcome major water challenges. Since the average leak remains underground and unreported for 18 months (per AWWA), rapid detection and resolution are of critical importance. Any environmental damage can be viewed and addressed. Resolution of leaks save water, CO2 and electricity.
