Best Practice For Trunk Main Flow Monitoring Areas

 
Price: £200  

A significant number of water companies have started using Trunk Main Flow Monitoring Zones (also known as Water Balance Zones) to locate areas with leakage or unaccounted for water on trunk mains. Data from these zones help direct leakage detection and consumption recovery efforts.

While some companies are at the maturity stage in their use of Trunk Main Flow Monitoring Zones (FMZs) others are just starting on the journey. There has been no best practice or standard for the development or use of FMZs to date. Creating and maintaining a successful FMZ requires a high amount of effort, investment, time and energy. With future industry’s challenge to reduce leakage and UKWIR’s big question on zero leakage by 2050, a best practice guide for FMZs is needed and gaps in the knowledge and technology for managing trunk mains should be identified.

The document builds on the UKWIR project: 15/WM/08/55 Leakage Upstream of District Meters, where FMZ’s are mentioned, but details on operational management of them is not and provides a detailed review of the approach as well as detailed guidance on how to establish them.
