FACT: 30-50% of water is lost through the average aging infrastructure.
If you have an aging infrastructure, are considering replacing your infrastructure or are installing new infrastructure, read on.
If you’re responsible for your water utility, you should also know that there is costly energy associated with municipal water loss through water main leaks. Water utilities are the single largest user of electricity in the U.S. (Source: Von Sacken, 2001).
It’s little wonder that water is considered the new oil.
What’s more, an old, crumbling infrastructure is akin to a time bomb. Think of the potential damage to roads, pipelines, and foundations. Or even the contamination from sewer leaks or other surrounding water.
It’s an issue that you can’t afford to ignore.
With the NRC, Echologics has pioneered an advanced technology that can provide a utility with an assessment of the structural thickness of their pipes non-destructively using acoustic wave analysis, while simultaneously providing leak detection. Enough leakage is found during our typical studies so that a rate of return is obtained on the investment in the technology simply on the marginal value of water saved.
That’s why water utilities such as the Las Vegas Valley Water District, Thames Water in London, England, Maple Ridge in British Columbia, Canada and others have turned to Echologics.
And, we can help you with your situation – whether it’s leak detection, permanent monitoring or simply assessing conditions.
