Summary: The City of Decatur, located in Central Illinois, has a 530 mile water distribution system that serves both Decatur and the neighboring Village of Mount Zion with a combined population of 82,000. It also serves a large industrial base with about 75% of its water going to industrial and commercial customers including large grain processors and heavy manufacturers. Like most utilities, they desired to continue providing high quality drinking water while simultaneously reducing operating costs. A few years ago, their 17% apparent water loss inspired Decatur to conduct a system-wide leak detection survey.
A proactive and properly designed leak detection study can help reduce losses at a time when many water utilities are focused on reducing operating expenses to meet lower usage and revenue. Reducing water loss saves water production costs and improves the quality of services to customers.
