Water Loss Control – Adapting to a New Way of Business
Keyes, Alice Miller
MetadataShow full item record
When managing water losses, the first step water providers must take is to ensure that they are accurately accounting for the water moving through the treatment and distribution systems. In Georgia, water providers have traditionally measured system efficiency using the expression unaccounted for water. Today, that method is considered to be imprecise, unreliable and inconsistent. Further, unaccounted for water should more accurately be replaced by the term non-revenue water. As recognized in the Water Stewardship Act of 2010, the International Water Association and American Water Works Association have developed a more accurate methodology for identifying and accounting for system leaks and un-metered uses. The IWA/AWWA water audit method provides detailed guidance for all water providers on measuring a water system’s water treatment and delivery performance based on system-specific features. This presentation will review the new requirements in the Water Stewardship Act, outline some best practices for water loss control and present tools available to assist water providers in meeting these new requirements.
