Main Break Prediction, Prevention and Control

by IWA Publishing

Nationally, water utilities suffer some 250,000 to 300,000 main breaks yearly that cause total losses of about $3 billion per year. To mitigate these losses, utilities require effective strategies to assess condition, compute risk, and implement pipe renewal projects. Planning for mitigation requires valid estimates of the probability of failure, ...;
