Utilis will host water professionals from around the world at their Innovation Summit with the theme “Benchmarking the Future of Leak Detection”
Utilis will host their second Innovation Summit in San Diego, bringing together water industry professionals from around the world to talk about satellite leak detection from November 26-28th at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. The Summit will tackle water conservation efforts by reducing non-revenue water by detecting leaks of potable water in underground pipes. On average, U.S. water agencies nationwide lose 46 gallons per service connection per day (GSCD) between treatment facilities and the consumer, according to the American Water Works Association (AWWA) 2016 report.
“We are excited to host this Innovation Summit in our new U.S. base of San Diego,” said Karen Dubey, Corporate Marketing Director for Utilis. “The summit brings together the best and brightest in water industry innovation and science.”
The keynote speakers will be Dr. Cathleen Jones of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Dr. Steven Folkman of Utah State University, both leaders in their fields who will be presenting the use of Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite data to monitor infrastructure, and the state of water infrastructure in the U.S., respectively. Global leadership from water and consulting organizations such as Spokane City Water Department, Hazen and Sawyer, Severn Trent Water, SUEZ, 2F Water Ventures, and more will be speaking at the event to share their experience using innovative methods for leak detection. The event will be invaluable to water utility managers looking to learn the latest and greatest in locating leaks to save water, time, and money.
