Itron Technology Helps Town of Olds Recover Lost Water Revenue and Achieve Conservation Goals

Sat, 2014-05-10 11:12 -- SCC Staff

When a water audit  found 39% of the water coming through the Town of Olds' supply line couldn’t be accounted for, it appeared leak repairs might recover enough water to delay the need for expensive infrastructure expansion. The town deployed a system from Council Global Partner Itron with strategically placed acoustic sensors to analyze sound patterns, detecting new, evolving and pre-existing leaks automatically. 

In the first six months alone, 21 leaks were repaired recovering 287,691 cubic meters of water at a revenue savings of $177,336. Click the Town of Olds water savings link below to read more.
