Water Loss Control

Project Description

CPUC regulatory pilot projects documenting the amount of energy that could be saved by reducing leaks in California water syste

Scope of Work

  • Conducted leak detection for participating water utilities
  • Computed the energy intensity of seed water
  • Estimated energy saved through water loss control
  • Evaluated efficacy of acoustic leak detection vs. other technologies
  • Estimated cost of repairing leaks vs. cost of energy saved

Key Deliverables

  • Energy Intensity of Water
  • Water Loss Control Program Benchmarks
  • Water Utility Case Studies
  • Energy Savings Attributable to Saved Water
  • Website Documenting Best Practices
