Topics of Discussion:

Leak Detection Principals: Discussion of what causes leaks, types of leaks and hidden leaks? Discussion on what type of management program you have developed, proactive or reactive. We will discuss the methods of updated technology of leak detection equipment and if a leak detection survey required. We will discuss why ppublic water systems depend on distribution systems to provide an uninterrupted supply of pressurized safe drinking water to all consumers.

Mapping: Maping water distribution systems consist of an interconnected series of components systems that should meet fire protection needs. New pipes are added to distribution systems as development occurs. As these systems age, deterioration can occur due to corrosion, materials erosion, and external pressures. Deteriorating water distribution systems can lead to-breaches in pipes and storage facilities, intrusion due to water pressure fluctuation, main breaks and protecting water quality in distribution systems.

Line Locating: Prior to excavating a job site, utility location services should be utilized to prevent unexpected collisions with existing lines below ground. Utility location allows you to avoid costly and time-consuming issues that could arise by digging without subsurface knowledge. California state law says: You must contact DigAlert, BEFORE you dig!
