Water utilities are charged with an incredibly important task – providing safe and affordable water to communities in the face of aging infrastructure, funding gaps, and changing regulatory requirements. Specifically, when considering water loss control, leakage, and operational inefficiencies, costs may appear to be far from affordable.
Outlined in this paper are various steps that utilities can take to leverage operational analytics via smart meter, AMI, and
SCADA information to accurately detect sources of leakage and reduce non-revenue water (NRW) to start minimising
water loss and start regaining revenue.
