Burst Detection and Leakage Management

CESAS has collaborated with Veolia Water on the development and testing of active burst-detection methodologies. This collaboration has already delivered a methodology to Veolia, which has proven 100% successful in locating leaks with a total of 20 pipe bursts detected thus far (according to Veolia statement). Commercial benefits of using the active burst-detection process and our software tools include:

  • A faster burst detection and repair system, reducing water losses, disruption to traffic and consequent losses from flooding
  • Less disruption to customer supplies therefore increased customer satisfaction levels
  • Automation of many of the steps in the burst detection process, increasing the accuracy of detection and efficiency of man-power
  • Improved compliance with requirements imposed by regulatory bodies
  • Improved operational efficiency; identifying bursts quickly could help to
  • distribute manpower resources more evenly
  • Improved operational efficiency; identifying bursts quickly could help to distribute manpower resources more evenly
