SubjectLeak detection
AbstractIn many water-distribution systems, a large percentage of the water is lost in transit from treatment plants to consumers. Water leaks are wasteful, costly, and create a public health risk. The amount of water that is lost or unaccounted for is typically 20 to 30 percent and can be as high as 50 percent for older systems. The losses stem from leakage, metering errors, fire fighting, pipe flushing, and theft. Leakage is usually the major cause.
