Signs That Water Pipe Lining is Failing

Water, for all its benefits, is one of the earth’s most destructive forces. Given enough time, it can dissolve the planet’s hardest minerals, carve mammoth canyons, and shape mountain ranges. The infrastructure designed to transport it from source to tap is not immune to this significant power. In fact, if left unattended, it’s just a matter of time before the pipelines and mains we rely upon fail. With that said, there are some key indicators that allow maintenance personnel to identify impending pipeline failure.[...]

What is non-invasive leak detection & how does it work?

Water leaks and main breaks are on the rise due to deteriorating water systems left unchecked. On average, these leaks run undetected for more than six months before it surfaces. The consequence of undetected leaks can be severe with up to 15–30% of treated potable water is lost through leaks.[...]

Sustainable Water Infrastructure Management (SWIM) Study

We often take for granted what we don’t see. This is especially true for our infrastructure that’s buried beneath the surface. Underground pipes supply our homes and businesses with access to safe water—keeping us alive. Yet in North America, the emphasis of replacing and upgrading these vital pipes have been widely ignored.[...]

Echologics Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP) Condition Assessment

Article | Jan 30, 2017

REDUCE THE COST OF PCCP ASSESSMENT PROGRAMS

Assessing and monitoring the condition of large diameter prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) is an important and challenging task. Water providers want solutions delivering the accuracy of complex electromagnetic (EM) and internal survey methods but without the operational challenges, limitations, and cost. The Echologics ePulse® condition assessment technology uses non-invasive and non-intrusive acoustic wave propagation (AWP) to identify sections of pipeline with reduced structural stiffness, and estimate the average remaining structural strength or wall thickness.[...]

IoT Solutions Help Solve Common Utility Challenges

IoT, or “Internet of Things,” is a nexus of technologies incorporating sensor-based data gathering and next-generation networking. The smart technology platform harnesses this IoT networking through the deployment of smart devices using advanced wireless technologies for remote monitoring and management of water networks. This allows utilities to tackle problems facing the industry today, such as an aging workforce and the need for real-time water quality monitoring. Below are five common challenges utilities face that can be addressed with data-driven solutions.[...]
