The Effect of Pressure Reduction on Burst Frequency

 
Price: £12  

This project investigated the effect of pressure reduction on repair rates by looking at historical data on a DMA basis.
It was concluded that implementation of pressure management generally results in a reduction in the number of repairs in subsequent years by up to 15%. Pressure management is most likely to be beneficial in terms of repair rate when the pre management rate is greater than 1.1 repairs/km/year. The results of this work are consistent with the IWA 'tipping point' hypothesis.
