Leak Detection Technologies

Workshop: Leak Detection Technologies

Date: Thursday March 26, 2015
Location: Mississauga Grand, 35 Brunel Road, Mississauga, ON

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW
Rapid improvements and advancements in the watermain condition assessment and monitoring technologies have made it possible to capture and address watermains’ leaks before they turn into catastrophic failures. Every year millions of litres of drinking water is lost through leakage in the underground water distribution pipelines resulting in lost revenue. Leaks coupled with hydraulic transients can cause contamination from external sources and degrade drinking water quality.

This workshop will introduce a variety of tools and technologies for watermains inspection and condition monitoring. The participant will learn about the working principles, processes, and benefits and limitations of technologies that include,  for example, visual inspection, non-invasive acoustics, in-line inspection, and continuous leak monitoring. The cost-benefit of leak detection programs will be demonstrated through a number of case studies.
