During March 2016 EBMUD concluded a year long pilot to verify the integrity of the technology with its ability to:

  • Identify suspected leaks locations
  • Differentiate between a resident/meter leak and a non-resident (main/service line) leak
  • Become a viable ongoing tool for EBMUD to assist with proactively reducing the NRW level faster and in a more efficient way

The Satellite Leak Detection system has tremendous promise as an emerging technology. The East Bay Municipal Utility District conducted a year-long pilot. The District has contracted for continuing services in the coming year. We are committed to working together to test methods for continued improvements.

Total Locations – 88       Total Leaks – 34     Total Days on Ground – 10
