FREE Water Audit Software

  Go to AWWA to download the FREE Water Audit Software.  The AWWA Free Water Audit Software© (Audit Software) was first released in 2006, and has been through several generations. It includes a data-grading capability that allows the auditor to rate the overall degree of validity of their water audit data. Guidance on loss control planning is given based upon the credibility of the data and the measure of losses displayed by the water audit. The current version of the Audit Software is Version 5.0, published in 2014. Highlighted features of Version 5.0 include a visual dashboard for graphical display of nonrevenue water components, a comments feature for capture of essential notes, and improved overall user experience.


Report on The Utah Water System Efficiency and Water Loss Control Pilot Program (draft) This report was prepared for the Utah Division of Water Resources following the completion of the training and pilot program using the FREE AWWA Audit Software. In 2016 the Utah Division of Water Resources (DWRe) set forth to enhance the state’s water loss programs by implementing a program to train utilities in analysis and management of non-revenue water. The aim of this pilot training program was to guide and advance adoption of best-practices for water loss control in the State of Utah through four objectives shown below. Download Here.
