Optimizing Capital Efficiency for Water Infrastructure Renewal

Summary Aging water mains leak more, leak quieter, and have higher risks of catastrophic failure. Leaks alone are poor indicators of a pipe’s structural condition. Over 70% of water mains are being replaced prematurely, wasting precious capital. Many utilities are adopting Acoustic Pipe Wall...
