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.
