The purpose of this UKWIR project was to gather information to identify and review the use of smart metering and smart networks for leakage management. To review the status of the water industry in the UK and Ireland and internationally both currently and looking towards the future with regards to how smart meters and smart networks can assist in improving and developing better leakage management. The project produced:
1) A report covering the detail of the current practices, looking forward to emerging solutions, identifying areas of opportunity for better leakage management, the benefits of smart networks and recommendations for UK and Irish water companies.
2) A technology scan reviewing smart metering and smart network products. The technology scan looked at both existing products that have had significant use by the industry and new emerging solutions some of which have the potential to transform the way water companies use smart networks for leakage management.
