Capital Maintenance Planning: Failure Data and Analysis Methodology for Water Mains
The aim of the UKWIR National Mains Failure Database for water mains is to provide robust, validated data on which deterioration modelling and asset investment strategies can be based. The report describes the creation of the database, its structure and a protocol for future data collection. Case studies of how the database has been utilised by some water companies are provided. Options of hosting future SQL versions of the database on the internet are discussed in the report. The data comprises records of UK water supply mains listed by material, age, diameter and length.Only two UK Water Companies are not covered. The length of mains amounts to 350,000 km. The database also contains details of around 470,000 water mains failures, mostly from the period 1994 to 2002. The database preserves the anonymity of the data providers. Broad statistics on assets and failure rates are presented.
