Programme highlight:

Nowadays, the detection of leaks in water supply mains is not only the job of Water Supplies Department on public supply systems, but is also becoming a routine exercise carried out in private lots as part of the estate management.  In some cases, this is actually a requirement of the Water Authority to reduce water wastage.

The main objective of a water leakage detection programme is obviously to identify the water leaks locations in a pipeline so that appropriate remedial measures can be taken.  Advanced leak detection technologies have been developed in recent years which the efficiency and accuracy of the process is much improved. A successful leakage detection programme requires a great deal of professional input with respect to strategic system monitoring, optimal use of resources to collect data, experienced judgment of valid leak signals, recommendation of further investigation and prioritization of remedial measures.  Sometimes there is also a risk of damaging the pipe body in exposing the suspected leaking main for visual inspection.
