Halifax Water: Drying Up Water Leaks

Halifax Water serves nearly 350,000 people in central Nova Scotia, delivering clean water from nine water supply plants via 1,600 kilometers of pipeline. In early 2000, rising water costs pushed water losses to the top of the company’s priority list. Water loss is nearly always the result of a leaky pipe somewhere in the system. The challenge is to find the location of the leak, and to do so quickly with minimum staff time, before significant water is wasted. Halifax Water used its already installed PI System to support water leakage reduction by 40 million litres per day, saving more than $600,000 on an annual basis.
