With increasing emphasis on conserving scarce water resources and maintaining efficiency of supply today's water utility operators are increasingly encouraged to drive down leakage and other losses to the economic level.
To help them with this task there is a range of equipment and techniques to measure, control and reduce leakage across the network. Some equipment has been around for many years, and some is relatively new, harnessing the rapid development in technology, communications and instrumentation.
This has enabled the water loss engineer to adopt a 'multi-sensor' approach, utilising the whole range of technology and selecting an appropriate mix of equipment for specific network characteristics and site locations.
Technology and Equipment for Water Loss Management is a guide for planning the required tasks for water loss management, including upgrading the network operating practices and records, for equipment selection and procurement, and for using the equipment.
Aimed at practitioner level - supply and operations engineers, leakage control managers, technicians, and field operators it is also invaluable as a teaching source book (courses on environmental management, resource management, water operations, etc).
