This free webinar will discuss a newly‐completed project from the Water Research Foundation that will help managers analyze and reduce water utility system leakage in the most cost effective way. The project produced a free user-friendly model that is a major improvement in standard leakage component analysis for the water utility community.
The model supports AWWA M36 and uses IWA/AWWA Water Audit as input. The project report, executive summary and web tools can be found on the related WRF project page.
10 North American utilities assisted with developing and beta testing the model. Additional funding was provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The webinar will specifically cover:
- Goals and Background of Project 4371
- Findings of a Literature Review
- Purpose and Outputs of the Model
- Recommendations on Applying the Model
- Next Steps on Outreach and Training
