Summary:Around the world, 46 billion liters of drinking water are lost every day. Although the non-revenue-water problem is important, solving it is limited by today’s leak detection technologies. These technologies require expensive labor and hardware – even when the systems are software-based. At some point, and despite the waste of water, utilities can’t make widespread use of current leak detection technologies, since they don’t make economic sense.

 

Mr. Schumi will present a new advanced technology utilizing satellite imagery developed to detect water system leaks, originally developed from the NASA Mars space program. The result? Leak detection that covers thousands of square kilometers at once, and that can pinpoint a leak as small as .02 GPM, saving significant labor associated with finding leaks with current tools.

 

The technology uses spectral aerial imaging taken from satellite mounted sensors – to spot leakage in underground water pipelines, regardless of material and surface/soil composition. The raw imagery is then overlaid on GIS systems and is processed by way of unique algorithms, looking for a particular spectral “signature” correlated to potable drinking water. The end game is the delivery of a graphic leakage report presented within a Web enabled GIS interface overlaid on a map with streets, pipes and leak size information.

Presenter: Paul Schumi currently serves as Hydromax USA's Business Development Manager. He has over 12 years of experience in water and wastewater infrastructure condition assessment programs impacting hundreds of thousands of water systems assets. Mr. Schumi has provided expertise in the assessment of aging water and wastewater infrastructure across the U.S., including recent projects in St. Louis MO, Austin TX, Kansas City KS, and many other communities. He is an active member of the AWWA and participates on numerous committees including the National AWWA Asset Management Committee.
