Training and Education: Water Loss Control


Water loss control represents the efforts of water utilities to provide accountability in their operation by reliably auditing their water supplies and implementing controls to minimize system losses.

   Report on Phase 2 of the Utah Water System Efficiency and Water Loss Control Pilot Program

The Intermountain Section of the American Water Works Association (Section), in conjunction with the Utah Division of Water Resources (DWRe), Division of Drinking Water (DDW), and Division of Water Rights (DWR) completed the Utah Water Efficiency and Water Loss Control Program (Program) for water utilities to learn how to improve water efficiency within their systems and to control water loss through a water system audit process. This report summarizes the components of the training program, the outcomes for each of the 9 pilot utilities, results regarding utility perceptions of performing a water audit, and recommendations for moving forward with a Statewide program.

Report on The Utah Water System Efficiency and Water Loss Control Pilot Program

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.  Download Report Here


 

The State of Water Loss Control in Drinking Water Utilities

This paper provides water utilities with background, facts, and resources to help them understand and communicate the occurrence of water and revenue losses in utility operations and the means to cost-effectively control them.  Download Report Here

 

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.
