Benefits and Disadvantages of Using 'No-Disruption' Repair Techniques

Price: £14  

Water companies are coming under increasing pressure to ensure that interruptions to water supplies are prevented or minimised as far as possible. This has resulted in increasing use of 'no disruption' repair techniques for leaks and bursts. This research project undertook a technical appraisal of water company experience of pipeline repair using a range of techniques, covering traditional ('disruptive') and 'no disruption' repair, with the aim of assessing the impact of the method selected on short and long-term network performance and on the consequent service to customers.

The Contractor, CH2M HILL, has analysed the data from a number of water companies within the United Kingdom to assess the impact of different network repair technologies on subsequent performance of the water distribution network. A Decision Support Tool was developed to enable water companies to select the best technique to use in various circumstances.
